Adam and Evan played... Continue reading

Good first-step aspiration. By Joanna Syiek (Director/Producer/Blogger) So last week I had the good fortune of hanging with a veritable slew of Jeopardy folks. As in, the types of people who have been on the show upwards of five times and make a habit out of being smart and interesting. Thanks to a friend, I ended up at (what had to be) the most intimidating pub quiz night in the city; one I had only previously heard folks whisper and warn me about as "impossible," "run by all of LA's top geniuses," and "almost funny how hard it is." But... Continue reading

David, who has spent every waking moment writing a musical, rewriting a play, and planning a theatre season, while working full time... would like to take this post to invite you to a reading... by David Davila (playwright / songwriter) So... Every bit of creative energy or idea that I've had this week has been spent. Sorry to say, but I have absolutely no thoughts to share with you today unless they're about the restructuring of my play MEN OF GOD. I've read it over and over this week. I've cut parts, rearranged, rewritten, reworked, tweeked, and cast the damn... Continue reading

A surprise rendezvous with a Richard Griffiths look-a-like has an even weirder outcome... by Anselmo Coy Martinez (playwright) You are never alone in this city, and strangers are the best. I’ve no problem approaching them, no problem talking to them, no problem going home with one; and honestly, if they aren’t like you imagined them to be, then you can turn around mid-sentence and walk away. This one night, shit just wasn’t working out for me and I didn’t meet one damn person, so I left the bar, drunk and alone, and headed home to dark, shady, shady Brooklyn. That... Continue reading

Where are all the young directors? by Srda Vasiljevic (director) Above you'll find a link to my favorite song: One Day / Reckoning Song (Wanklemut Remix) by Asaf Avidan. In addition to being my favorite song, 'One Day' gets some ideas rumbling around in my head, and I want you to try to answer to them with me. The main chorus of the song drives the point home, "One day, baby, we'll be old and think of all the stories that we could've told." And so my question goes out to you theater-makers, artists, professional make-believers: Where are the theatre-artists... Continue reading
