And that's how that went, until the show closed. The director did not come to the cast party, and I never saw him again. Which is sad, actually, since we had LOTS in common...until we started talking politics. And then, from his perspective, it was over. I had stepped Beyond the Pale, and that was that.
During this election cycle, I've been attacked, disrespectfully contradicted, and directly abused by "friends," one of whom I defriended. One wonders how things might have gone had I advocated for either Clinton or Trump instead of the Libertarian. Probably not a lot differently.
