A peek behind the curtain into my playwriting
on the TV show I host, Cue
To Cue. Reviews of theater productions. Current and archived
coverage of the Minnesota
Fringe Festival - 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, and 2003 (yup,
I'm in my sixth year of trying to get my arms around that August
theatrical free-for-all). All that, plus some tentative first
offerings of online writing done for my friend's website
Past, present, and future. Feel free to dig in anywhere, and
help shape upcoming posts by dropping
