I dreamed of Leonard Nimoy this morning. I know this may come as a shock to some of you, but I really don’t dream of him all the time! (Although I have shared a few here) .
Anyway, I was sitting in an audience, probably at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater at Symphony Space on Broadway, and I could see him at a distance, sitting on a panel with several other people, including Bill Shatner. Leonard was talking with enthusiasm about acting in a play, definitely mentioned something about Star Trek. He wore a light tan suit and brown aviator glasses like the ones he wore in the ’70’s. He was so happy and laughing, and his beautiful hands were gesturing with all his words. Surprisingly (and most unrealistically) Shatner sat quietly and didn’t interrupt! The audience laughed and applauded.
I felt so happy for him, and then suddenly it was just me and him on the stage, and he was directing me in a play. Not much else after that, although I think this came to mind because (in real life) I’ll be performing in a staged reading of The Importance of Being Earnest this coming Friday!
Nice to know dream Leonard has my back in acting!
Sweet dreams, everyone ❤
I had another funny dream this morning — I was reading a Daily News tabloid that had a big headline proclaiming “THAT’S NOT SPOCK!” and a photo of Nimoy in a old bathrobe on stage in an angry stance. The article read “Cursin’ Grumpy Grandpa rules the Broadway Stage!” It proceeded to explain that Nimoy’s latest venture was playing a Grouchy, intolerant, Archie Bunker-like character in a new musical! There were photos of him laughing and mingling with the cast, and comments that “He really enjoys this, it’s so out of character for him!” And I could hear someone say that he’d be performing in it BOTH of the theaters named after him on NYC and LA! (In reality there’s only the one in NYC).
As I looked at the ad, I thought “Wait, he’ s in a play? I’d love to see this! Then I thought “But wait…” and I quickly scanned for the date; it was dated 2012. I had missed it.
I wonder what brought this on? I had been reading a Daily News in the cafe at Wegman’s yesterday, and its tabloid style was clearly all over the paper in the dream. I’ve also been thinking of going to NYC lately, and Nimoy occasionally pops up in my dreams. Maybe somewhere in my brain The Lazy Song was playing too, and that would explain the bathrobe!
