  • Coming up for air

    The election is over, and I’ve gone through the appropriate grieving period, and now I think I’m ready to blog again.  God, that sounds pathetic.  Not untrue, mind you, but pretty pathetic.  In any case, I didn’t feel like subjecting anyone to the spiders in my brain, so I fumigated, and hopefully I can get…

  • New plays in the dregs of summer

    October is finally here, which means summer is good and dead (for which, I am grateful), and we can get on with important stuff.  Like theater and writing.  You’re welcome. Having said that, there was one interesting play I saw at the end of July that I’ve been going back and forth about mentioning: I Am…

  • Rambling from the heat

    The summer heat is upon us, and (predictably) I want to shoot myself in the head.  Seriously, I ought to migrate to Toronto or someplace.  Not that I’ve been to Toronto, but I hear it’s nice, and it can’t be hotter than here.  Also, my tomato plants aren’t doing as well as I’d like, and…

  • Moon Man Walk

    Summer is ticking away in Philadelphia, which generally means trips to the shore, generous helpings of water ice, and relatively little theater, hence, my lack of blogging.  But yesterday afternoon, Aurora and I caught the matinee of Moon Man Walk, the world premiere by James Ijames. There are a couple of powerful reasons for all local…

  • Spelunking by moonlight

    So, last Wednesday I got a chance to see Moon Cave, by local playwright Douglas Williams.  I don’t know Doug very well, but I’ve met him a handful of times, he hangs with the cool kids over at Orbiter 3, and he seems like a fine, upstanding such-and-such.  This is his first, professionally-produced play, so beyond…

  • The Orbiter 3 launch party

    Orbiter 3’s launch party was last night, and it was quite the place to see-and-be-seen.  Some questioned the wisdom of shoehorning a hundred people or so into a tiny coffee shop, but I thought it was genius.  It gave the event a feeling of immediacy, whereas the same hundred people plunked in the middle of a warehouse…

  • Orbiter 3, aka, the Legion of Doom

    Last week, I attended (and blogged about) the PlayPenn gala, and during the evening of drinking, eating, play-watching, and kudos-delivering, I was pleased and surprised to hear a special shout-out to a new organization in Philly: Orbiter 3. These kids made a special announcement of their existence the week before, and I kid you not, it’s…
