After auditioning for a small one-line walk-on part for a stage production of "Gypsy", Ann is excited not only to get the part, but to be chosen specifically by the production's leading lady, Ethel Merman. Ann thinks that Miss Merman may regret her decision when Ann acts more like a star struck fan than a professional actress during rehearsals. As such, Ann tries to avoid Miss Merman when they aren't rehearsing on stage. But when Donald and Ann see Miss Merman eating dinner alone in her dressing room, Donald, on a whim, asks her if she would like to join him and Ann for dinner at Ann's apartment. This act mortifies Ann, as her star struck self wouldn't even think that someone of Ethel Merman's celebrity status would even consider it. To Ann's surprise, Miss Merman not only says yes, but offers to cook dinner for them. Beyond the true star struck fans from Ann's apartment building descending on her apartment during the evening to catch a glimpse of Ethel Merman, Ann sees that a celebrity such as Ethel Merman is just a human being who has human foibles such as putting too much pepper in her stuffed cabbages.- Written by Huggo
