ESL Podcast 625 – Being Famous and Anonymous
Slow dialogue: 1:15
Fast dialogue: 16:07
Erik: Why are you wearing that getup?
Erik: So? Are you trying to tell me that you think you’re famous after being in one play?
Juliana: Of course! I’ve had my name in lights and I have to expect people to know who I am. Losing my privacy is the price of fame. Everybody knows that.
Erik: I think you may be overestimating the size of your adoring public. How many people went to see your play?
Juliana: Enough. By tomorrow, the newspapers will have my picture plastered across their pages and I will have to say good-bye to my anonymity.
Erik: If the papers don’t come out until tomorrow, why are you going around incognito?
Juliana: I’m just getting ready to meet my fans.
Erik: Depending on whether the reviews are good or bad, you may be famous – or infamous.
