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, and Amanda Schoonover’s The It Girl at Simpatico Theatre Project (totally thought I’d posted Mandy’s photo earlier, but I obviously didn’t). Both shows were terrific, but of course that doesn’t help you out because both are already closed. Aurora and I also saw Lobby Hero at Theatre Horizon last Thursday and had a fantastic time, but that information is also worthless to you because, again, it closed.
I’m sensing a trend. So, if you’re expecting me to give you info on upcoming shows in Philly, you really shouldn’t. Just flat-out shouldn’t. You should be doing your own research, anyway. You can’t expect me to spoon-feed you these things. Lazy bastards.
Now, two things I will tell you about are two more readings coming up this week:
Monday night is the next reading at the Drake, featuring playwright Lauren Feldman.
Tuesday night is the next reading for E3T, featuring playwright Shelli Pentimall Bookler.
I don’t think I’ve met either playwright (although, to be honest, I meet a lot of playwrights, so if one of them told you they shot pool with me in the basement of a speakeasy one dark, September night in 2009, I wouldn’t deny it out of hand, although the pool-shooting part of the story is highly suspicious), but I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of game they’ve got. Get out there people! New plays rock!
