Flower City Vaudeville has had a small obsession with macaroons ever since we appeared as an opening act in Melyssa Hall’s production of the Edna St. Vincent Demay play, Aria da Capo. We took advantage of the opportunity to have some fun with the memorable line, “A macaroon! I cannot live without a macaroon!”
In our show The Road to Towanda, we present macaroons to audience members and are frequently sidetracked by the mention of macaroons in any context. In addition to being wholesome and delicious, we think “macaroon” is one of the funniest words in the English language.
How lovely thy texture,
How sweet thy confecture.
As bright as fool moon,
Behold the macaroon!
