TRANSCRIPT

MADONNA SPECTACLE, NOW OLD
Do you recognize my voice? I don’t blame you if you don’t. It’s me: Madonna Spectacle. I’ve had a
long life. Some parts have been really hard.

MINDY, IN THE PAST
A wheelchair isn’t the end of the world! Listen, I’m gonna sew you a costume which comes off
when you spin the wheelchair around, like one spin and your whole outfit is different! It’s gonna be
magic!

MADONNA SPECTACLE, NOW OLD
Some parts have been very easy.

FELIPE
My folks threw me out. I don’t have anywhere to go. Maybe I can… live with you for a while?

MADONNA SPECTACLE, IN THE PAST
Of course you can.

MINDY, IN THE SAME PAST
For as long as you want.

MADONNA SPECTACLE, IN THE PAST
If you want us to, we can be your parents.

MADONNA SPECTACLE, NOW OLD
But all has to come to an end. I’ve seen my kids fly off, to make new and better lives for
themselves. And now, it’s my turn. Madonna Spectacle’s final performance. Tearing off layer after
layer of fantastic dresses, and when the final one comes off… there’s no one there. Just emptiness.
And then the lights go out.

THE END
