Puff Puff

If your theatre is facing a local smoking ban, you definitely need to check out this exhaustive survey of alternate options by Stage Directions' Jean Schiffman.

For instance, did you know that the leading brand herbal cigarette is called "Ecstacy"? Wouldn't that lead to, um, other confusions?

(Btw: "advertised ingredients are wild lettuce, catnip, passion flower, skull cap, mint, natural flavors." Stick with the other X, I say.)

Oh, and another btw, if you're one of those people in the audience who automatically protest-coughs at the mere site of any lit substance or perfectly non-irritating dry-ice fog...stop it. You make me want to gag.
