 n.— «Playing Doody (“Those Magic Changes”) and Frenchy, the “Beauty School Dropout,” the two hit it off right away. They were both hard-working, both passionate about the theater, both committed Christians who consider faith a big part of their lives. Friendship was almost automatic, and promised to lead to more. That kind of thing happens so often there’s a name for it: “showmances.” But, Chris Jones said, they wanted to move slowly. “Rehearsal is always so emotionally charged, you have to be cautious,” he explained. They never even kissed.» —“Romance takes center stage for actors in ‘Joseph’” by Judith Newmark STLtoday.com (St. Louis, Missouri) July 20, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
