Dante has a seat, and others brought seats with them.

I did not know what i wanted to photograph. During the action, i began to concentrate on the faces of the actors when they were not speaking. As they were still, and the camera was not inclined to stop motion, i should have decided earlier on portraits. Being inside a Masonic building (i was disappointed in not seeing the secret rooms), and they playing before the stage, i was much closer to the actors. Facing the actors, those on the left were close enough for a good exposure, until the outside light declined.
It is interesting, to see the faces while they are waiting and watching. At times it was evident they enjoyed their comrades' acting. An acting troupe is a type of ad hoc fraternity, and it must be better to be with a circle of friends, and not adversaries.

'Doughboy' infantryman from World War I, by Ernest Moore Viquesney 1934.
There were more than 150 of these, The Spirit of the American Doughboy, made from 1920 and on. It is of pressed copper. In addition Viquesney made some variants.

Tubas are fun, there is a family of tubas in various keys, sizes, and shapes. That low, deep brass has its aficionados. Harvey Philips recognised this. He was a professor of tuba. He organised the first Tuba Christmas (carols) in New York City in 1974.

More expensive cameras, bigger jerks attached, this guy squatted and took a minimum of a dozen shots, also used the movie function. My one picture is better than his.
These kite puppets are with the Cleveland Museum of Art.
With all the partisan strangers in town, a little local balance is needed.

Captain America is a Sikh
Code Pink Beauty Pageant
Early, a wall of cameramen blocked sight of the girls. Someone engaged the girl on the left, about where she came from, "Los Angeles". Someone next to me was impressed she came from so far away. I says to him, "This is a circus. In the 19th century circuses coming to town were entertainment, and when they came to county seats, transportation allowed people to travel from nearby counties to see. To-day, transportation allows people from all over the country to see the circus".

I think, the Michigan State Police are the motorcycle escorts for wagons load of Republicans.
"Who you gonna call?". Florida State Police look like the movie's Ghostbusters.
