online, with reviews this week of the musical Stuck

of Rochester Nights
, the inaugural production of Theatre Upstairs here in Phoenix.
A pal recently asked if I was aware that James Mason had once appeared on a Sesame Street
special, in which he had played an Egyptian demon. Indeed I was not, and it strikes me that when any two of the categories "Sesame Street
" "James Mason" and "Egyptian demon" are present it's interesting, but when all three are present it's pretty much must-see TV. So check out this clip
, from the 1983 special Don't Eat the Pictures: Sesame Street at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
, about six minutes in.
