Dear Mr. Keillor, Those lovely

May 12, 2004 |

Dear Mr. Keillor,
Those lovely oriental rugs that you have onstage for all your performances: when did you start using them? Are they for soundproofing? We've dragged our oriental through eight moves in thirty years and no place seems like home til we've laid it down. Could this be your reason too? (I love the red shoes.)

Martha


Martha,
Those rugs (or rugs exactly like them) have been around the show for twenty years and they do help cut down on clomping and deaden the sound of my big feet tapping when I sing. And they make us feel at home on the road. And they look great under the lights, all those warm browns and golds.
