Q: In about 1975 I caught a NL Touring show at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre as a lad of 15. I’m pretty sure it was before the beginning of SNL, and it had Belushi, Radner (they did an visciously physical sketch of “Rhoda Tyler Moore” as an effervescent blind Rhoda with Belushi as a torturous boyfriend), and possibly Chevy Chase… Also, there was a musical sketch about Patty Hearst (“It’s my fault, I’m a female fag”). Can you confirm who the castmembers were for this show? This has always haunted me.
A: According to Michael Simmons, who was involved in the show, it played in Ottowa in 1976 with the second company, which included Meatloaf and Ellen Foley. See the Comments below for more info.
