DIRECTOR: those aren't really adjectives I think of when I look at pictures of groucho marx. especially when he used greasepaint. it's angular, boxy, not furry, perfectly managed.
let me take a picture with the glasses on
im not saying people won't recognize it,
it just looks weird
it's like the moustache is smiling
PLAYWRIGHT: quite honestly its really irrelevant ... ppl will see glasses, big nose, bushy eyebrows, mustache & think "oh! groucho marx!" ... & seeing the glasses on u only proves that they will work just fine ... they look great, actually
DIRECTOR: if it's irrelevant we'll go with the other glasses.
PLAYWRIGHT: it would b foolish & wasteful & counterproductive to buy another pair when we already have 2 that work just fine
DIRECTOR: Ok, man. Obviously we disagree on this. I searched online and found the most authentic looking, the OFFICIALLY LICENSED Groucho Marx glasses. Ones that look exactly like the guise he wore. You decided to order other ones, that's fine. We'll work with these for now and see how the director/actors feel during the process. I'll gladly spend the $10 out of my own pocket to get a different pair should we feel they are more appropriate.
PLAYWRIGHT: appropriateness & authenticity isnt a goal in this production, tho
save 10 bucks!
but a cpl beers instead!
DIRECTOR: i've gotta go anyway
DIRECTOR: we'll drop this for now,
we've got these
like I said, I'll make them work for the photo
PLAYWRIGHT: ok cool
i'll continue my argument for the other pair further down the road when it's more of a concern.
