@ isaac I haven't forgotten Heathers. It's probably one of my top five favorite movies of all time. I just don't consider it a "rebellion" film. I guess it could be, but I just didn't think of it as part of this sub genre.

@ Kevin. T That's because it wasn't a Nickelodeon show. It was Canadian and Nickelodeon just had the good sense to air it. It was so, so good.
@Justin Hi! How are you? Thank you for stopping by! And thanks for your kind words. I really liked Drop, and in fact liked most of the plays that won. My entry isn't so much about Sam French. It's actually a rare example of something merit based in theater, otherwise somebody like me never would have made it as far as I did. Okay, I'll get off my blue collar, pinko socialist soap box. Seriously, I meant just that it's rough, you know? Especially that even playwrights who are "successful" still don't make as much money as I do in my low end tv job. Do you know that a writer making their living solely through theater, a quote unquote successful playwright, makes 25k a year? That's less than the lowest paid person in my office. Blech. I guess I'm just wondering if I should shift my expectations and just do this as a hobby. Just make theater for my friends and their friends (which is really what I've been doing anyway) and be happy with that without trying to get so-called legitimate theater people to like my work. You know? To quote an internet friend, "Trying to be a playwright is like trying to be a unicorn." P.S. Up With (Some) People is great the way it is, thank you very much! :)

Holy cow! I'd just finished writing about being a groomzilla when I found a link to this entry. Great minds think alike! Kudos on your coming day. Hope we can get the same in NYC soon! Love your blog!
