Coming Up...

Rewrites and Submissions

Act two rewrites of Spellbound went over very well, so now with a little final tinkering on act one, and one more look to smooth the whole thing out and hopefully chop out a few more pages, it's going to be ready to start sharing with interested parties.  TV Boyfriend needs another look, as does Love's Prick, and I've still got to work up a first draft of the second act for the Cymbeline puppet riff.  Onward.

Theater Reviews

Frank Theatre is revisiting the pro-labor musical The Cradle Will Rock, which is sadly still as apt to our times as the day it was written, but just as determined and optimistic as well (more than I am some days), running thru 4/7 at the Gremlin space - 4.5 stars

Other recent reviews - The Me, Too double feature at the Bryant Lake Bowl from Paige Collette and Tatiana Pavela, The Monica Meditations, and Brandi Alexander - 4.5 stars; Girl Friday Productions/Park Square's The Skin of Our Teeth - 5 stars; Chain Reaction Theatre's new showcase What Guys Really Want - 3.5 stars

Just in case anyone was wondering why the steep drop off in the number of theater reviews in recent months, I posted some words of explanation here.

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

And here's some links to a roudup of the best theater I saw in 2017, and the best theater I saw in 2016.
