My husband just asked me what was the diff between those showoff 
notes when they are righteous and when they are just frippery and i 
said, (off the top of my head), they are RIGHT if they push forward 
the ART, if they further the drama. and if they do not, they are self 
indulgent, and like cheap costume jewelry.  Even whilst perhaps not 
understanding the language a person got the idea that there was a 
hell of a lot of emotion leaking out all over the stage.
