Rachmoninov is so Emo

I kid. On with the post! It’s been a hard month, culminating in a pretty draining week this week. I’ve barely seen Russell, who is either rehearsing for Woolf, in production meetings for Willy Wonka Jr., keeping up with Reva stuff, or working two part-time day jobs. Oh and Starrynight’s season needs to be beefed […]

More You Say?

Banshee Trailer

It seems a bit strange to have a trailer for a theatrical production that isn’t some huge Broadway musical. Nonetheless, the trailer looks pretty darn fine and Roy and Ryan deserve the limelight. Come see the show!

Detesting the Term Webmistress

I’m not sleeping with the webmaster and I’m certainly not sleeping with the entire web. I am the webmaster, not the webmistress. Am I nuts? Does the connotation of the word ‘webmistress’ bother anyone else? As promised, here is the link to Starrynight Productions. As webmaster, I’d love some feedback. There are a ton of […]

Banging on Random Objects Tim (a.k.a., the coolest here’s-a-free-ticket guy ever) let me tag along with him to see STOMP last night at the IU Auditorium. Good times!

Thespian Shenanigans

Hah! This *almost* made me feel better. And then I ate lunch. And then lunch came back with a vengeance. Meh… The group Improv Everywhere converged on Grand Central Station and you’ll never believe what they did. Nothing. My favorite part is the poke. Check it out, you’ll see.

Carroll and Doyle

Here’s a set from Liz Carroll and John Doyle, called Catherine Kelly’s. I have not seen Liz Carroll live and this is criminal. Must work on this. I met John Doyle after a concert with Eileen Ivers years ago and he is simply adorable, not to mention an amazing musician- even when he breaks strings […]

Holiday Detor

I meant to blog about this earlier but life happened. I saw the amazing Krista Detor (and friends) at the Bloomington Playwrights Project this past weekend and fell in love with her rich voice and storytelling song-writing. Check out her holiday CD The Silver Wood: Wintersongs. It is beautiful. I can’t stop listening to “Christmas […]
