When she first learned of his death, she was upset, but only because she had a scrund.

She didn't know him. Did she only know about his death because he was famous? Had she hero-worshipped him?

Was his on screen persona really huge? Did she think that a character he played was real? Was she actually upset at the loss of the character rather than him? Was she mistaken as to which character he played?

Balin:

Was her scrund about actors? This actor in particular? This. By the way, I'm defining a "scrund" as an embarassing misconception. Not sure if there's supposed to be more to it than that. About certain actors? All actors?

Lynne:

Was his on screen persona really huge? I will tell you when the puzzle is over why this question is hilarious. He did play quite a famous character, if that's what you mean. Did she think that a character he played was real? no Was she actually upset at the loss of the character rather than him? no, possible FA lurking Was she mistaken as to which character he played? yope

Okaaaaaaaay. Your comment made me think that perhaps it was the Incredible Hulk, but he seems to still be alive.

What about Gary Coleman? Was the scrund that he was younger than he actually was?

Okaaaaaaaay. Your comment made me think that perhaps it was the Incredible Hulk, but he seems to still be alive. Correct. As far as I know.

What about Gary Coleman? You got it. Neither he nor his on-screen persona was "really huge." Now, what's the scrund? Was the scrund that he was younger than he actually was? nope.

Was he mostly a TV actor? I mean, Gary Coleman is mostly famous for TV. He might have been in other things, I don't know. This line of questioning is OTRT, though. Movie actor? Relevant?

Date of death relevant? Not the exact date, only that it was recently.

Is a child actor playing him in the musical? Is she upset because she thinks the child is Gary Coleman and dead? No to both. Also, just to clarify, unless you're actually familiar with the musical, it isn't actually relevant that it's a musical rather than a play, movie or TV show. At this point, you can either solve this with a lateral leap, or by actually knowing what I'm talking about.

But she thought the actor was Gary Coleman and therefore dead, right? Was she upset because she thought the person she thought was Gary was dead? (what a great sentence =) Or because of some consequence of this imagined death? Such as a cancellation of the show? Or having to find a replacement? Is she affiliated with the show somehow?

Is the show running on Broadway? Off?

Was she planning on attending an upcoming performance, that had not-Gary-Coleman actually been Gary Coleman and died, the show would have been cancelled? Does that sentence make any sense at all?

Did the show start in [LTPF list of decades]?

Strangely enough, it does. LOL at not-Gary-Coleman.

Did the show start in [LTPF list of decades]? The 00s, or the aughts, or whatever we're supposed to call the decade that just ended.

Gary Coleman has broken his head.
Now she can't his show,
But what she doesn't know,
Is that "he"'s neither Gary, nor dead.

Fair enough.

*********************SPOILER********************
My sister, a college graduate, and old enough to know better, owns the soundtrack to Avenue Q and really wants to see the show. For those of you unfamiliar with Avenue Q, it's an adult show with both human actors and muppets. One of the characters in the show is "Gary Coleman," usually portrayed by a black woman. The show opened several years ago, and when Gary Coleman died, my sister's first reaction was "How am I going to see Avenue Q now?" because she thought that Avenue Q starred Gary Coleman as himself. In one way, she raised a good point, though, because I'm sure the first few performances after his death were incredibly awkward.

Actor: Hi, I'm Gary Coleman!
Entire Cast: It sucks to be you!
Audience: Too...soon....

Anyway, thanks for playing, and check out my other puzzles.
