Meet our Minnie: Darlene Popovic
So I was doing a little Google-stalking. Well, no, it's not really stalking since it's to do publicity for the show. But I think I like the term. I'm not sure I've ever heard it before. I know I didn't make up the term "ego-surfing" (when you Google yourself to find out how many hits you have.) But can we say I made up the term "Google-stalking"?
You know it really helps when Google-stalking if you've dated people with very unique names. In fact someone out there Google-stalked a 42nd St. Moon actress and found her mentioned on this blog and emailed me asking me to give her his contact info. Which I did. But that's a whole other story.
But I digress. Back to Darlene.
So by Google-stalking I discovered that Darlene was in a show I saw at TheatreWorks' years ago, Another Midsummer Night. Her part was really fun because she played Nicky Paton, a performance artist who mostly shows up in multimedia images on TV screens. I'd be lying if I said I had total recall of the show, but I do remember her face on those screens...and the wacky hilarity that ensued :) I wish I'd been writing my Personal Blog back then, because then we could dig up a review! The onyl one I could dig up online was this one from the Los Altos Town Crier!
In any case, you can see, if I dig into any Bay Area performer's bio deep enough I will find something I've seen them in.
BTW: Darlene also has a CD, Love and Laughter for sale. You'll be able to get it in the lobby.
So, now you know a bit about Minnie from Minnie's Boys, Darlene Popovic.
