Ask a Playbill Bio: Cicadas


Dear Playbill Bio,
I’m at wit’s end. I haven’t slept in over a week. In the words of The Grinch, “It’s the noise, noise, noise, noise”! See, there are these bugs in the tree outside my bedroom window. I’m told they are cicadas. I can’t see them, but I can hear them. Lord can I hear them. Anyway, I don’t know what to do. I’m a vegan.

Do just tolerate it or do I take a life?

Screaming in the Trees

Dear Scream Queen,
Keep killing it out there, for years to come. Thirteen years to be exact. Or maybe seventeen.
