In the middle of a hysterically funny orgy scene…

“Why, when in the middle of an hysterically funny orgy scene at Thursday’s opening performance of the Yale Rep’s bravura Lulu, which turns into a food fight, with whipped cream being smeared over at least five semi-clad men and one desperately mascara-ed lesbian countess, who are all Lulu’s current, future, or ex-lovers, and most entirely ridiculous in their narcissistic idealizing of her . . .why, when she wipes the Redi-Whip out of her big, brown eyes and turns to soliloquize to the audience, ‘This is the most beautiful moment of my life,’ do we suddenly burst into the release of laughter or feel a deep belly ache of tragedy, and perhaps both simultaneously?”
