Coming Up...

Mom's Brain Tumor

It's large. It's inoperable. Even with treatment, 12 months is an optimistic prognosis.

Here's mom's Caring Bridge page -

There's nothing about the situation right now that doesn't suck.

But if you feel so inclined, there's a way you can help me better help Mom and my brother, as I shuttle back and forth in the coming months between Minnesota and Pennsylvania. A friend started a Go Fund Me page to help with expenses -

Here's another post with a little more context

I've been in PA since May 1. Longest three weeks of my life. More to come.

Theater Reviews

I was looking forward to seeing Underdog Theater's How's It Gon' Be this week.  Life had other plans. But you should see it on my behalf if you're in the Twin Cities right now.

Other recent reviews - Sandbox Theatre's Golden Record Project - 5 stars; Prime Production's Marjorie Prime - 3 stars; Frank Theatre's The Cradle Will Rock - 4.5 stars; Paige Collette and Tatiana Pavela's 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.
