Theatrical older folks hit the boards

"Law and Disorder" is the name of the ongoing drama put on the in-house network of the retirement home of the Motion Picture Actors in LA.

Instead of bingo, they act--because, as one put it, we are not old enough to collapse or pass out. A crude way to put it, but I see where he was going.

There are also other age-nuanced shows, such as "The Roaring 90s" and  "Alive and Kicking."

The average age of newcomers to the residence is 87. You have to have worked 20 yrs in the biz to get in the place.

It sure beats bingo, chortled one.

Like a real-life "Coccoon." Love it.
