  • Reading tonight at the Colonial Playhouse!

    It occurs to me this morning, that I have failed to blog about my impending reading tonight.  Which is a little silly.  Sure, I’ve had a lot going on and plenty to take up the pages of my blog, and yes, I certainly sent out plenty of emails (blanket and otherwise) to alert my gentle…

  • Bruce Walsh at Azuka Theatre, part 2

    So you may have noticed that last week’s reading at Azuka Theatre left me less than entirely satisfied.  Without retreading old ground, I’ll simply quote David Lee Roth: “Videos are like girlfriends to me; I’m constantly surprised by the choices other people make.” So imagine my pleasant surprise to witness Bruce Walsh’s terrific reading on…

  • Summertime lull

    Well, we’ve reached that point in the theater season where things are slowing down.  All the theater seasons are coming to a close, and the summer stock hasn’t begun, yet.  PlayPenn is doing its reading series in mid-to-late July, ditto for Orbiter 3’s next show, and the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival will also be starting shortly,…

  • Todd Cardin at E3T

    The latest installment of the E3T reading series dropped on Tuesday night at Plays and Players, and there was much rejoicing.  Playwright Todd Cardin provided us with Getting the Knack, which is a coming-of-age story (sort of), set in the 1980s, in which the band The Knack plays an instrumental role during a young man’s eighteenth…

  • Fran Wilde rocks Bryn Mawr! Insert “Wilde” pun here!

    So, instead of posting this last week, I took my Dad to see Captain America.  You wouldn’t think that would take all week, especially since we did it on Saturday, but I spent several days actively avoiding reviews and spoilers, followed by the process of simply getting my head into the correct space.  I mean, a new…

  • The Cutler Initiative

    I probably should have done this last week, but I had a fun time at Joy Cutler’s reading last Monday at the Drake’s reading series.  I already pointed out all the players in my last post, so I won’t bother here, but the short of it is that they were all really good.  Also, I…

  • Back from Budapest

    So, I took a break from the blog to go on an overdue vacation with my lovely spouse.  I would apologize to all my readers, but I sincerely don’t care.  I had a fantastic time in Prague and Budapest, eating lots of various pork parts and paprika everything.  Apart from catching the ballet in both…

  • Two more readings!

    Just because I don’t post it, doesn’t mean I’m not out there, seeing way too much theater.  It simply means that I’m not treating this blog with the proper sanguineness. There’s actually quite a lot of good theater going down this season.  The photos I’m attaching are related to Bruce Graham’s Funnyman at the Arden Theatre,…

  • The rise of E3T

    The Tuesday-night readings at Plays and Players have an official name: “E3T” which stands for “Every Third Tuesday,” which, cleverly enough is when the readings occur.  I like it.  It’s short, it’s descriptive, and I finally have something cool to type.  I’m attaching a photo from the reading three weeks ago, featuring the talented playwright…

  • Playwrights attack!

    So I caught the third new play reading at the Drake last Monday by new local playwright Sarah Galante.  I also caught the second one two weeks ago, by Julia Lopez, but I got lazy and didn’t post anything about it.  However, not to be one to let an opportunity slip by (even one created by…
