Coming Up...

New Content - a short Thanksgiving play of first world problems

Due to rocky personal finances (under control now, but kinda close to the bone), I won't be going home for Thanksgiving for the first time in many years (saving up travel money for Christmas instead). A UK-based theater troupe of North American expats (both US and Canadian) made a call for Thanksgiving themed shorts, so I thought I'd see what fodder I could make from ruminations on my upcoming holiday orphan state. Waiting for word now on whether it's chosen, but I figured I might as well post it here, since it's gone through the writing group (who made a couple of useful suggestions for tweaks, now included). It's called Cloudy Water, and it's on the site under Short Plays in the Plays and Musicals here.

Theater Reviews

I'll be seeing the Bucket Brigade's new musical Life Goes On this coming Friday.  Review to be posted that same weekend.

Coverage of the recent 2018 Minnesota Fringe Festival can be found on the blog here.

Managed to compile a Top Ten list for theater in 2017, the cross section of it that I saw anyway, along with links to all the coverage I wrote up last year.

Also, posted a Top Ten list (of what I saw) for theater in 2016, the good, bad and indifferent that year.  Check it out.

Farewell to Playwright Friend Sean Grathwol

One of the first writer friends I made after moving to Minnesota over 25 years ago died unexpectedly in his sleep over Labor Day weekend.  It was good to see old friends at his memorial, though the reason was sad.  I posted some thoughts about Sean online, to share a bit of who he was with people who didn't have the privilege of knowing him.
