This week: mostly local theatre, plus a byline of mine.
- There’s No Such Thing as ‘The Official Lipstick of Broadway’ by Richelle Perry (me!), Racked.
- Race, Money and Broadway: How ‘Great Comet’ Burned Out by Michael Paulson, New York Times.
- Master of the House by Scott Miller, New Line Theatre blog.
- Houston Theatres Survey the Damage by Allison Considine and Diep Tran, American Theatre Magazine.
- Prison Performing Arts founder Agnes Wilcox dies in Canada by Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
This weekend I’m seeing CommUnity Arts Festival’s first two dance concerts to benefit a local dancer who is a survivor of gun violence, and Rebels and Misfits’ Uncle Vanya – Valiantly Accepting Next Year’s Agony, a fully immersive adaptation of the Chekov classic.
I finally broke down and dropped the $60 on a bottle of green chartreuse, so Last Words will be the Labor Day libation I partake in while devoting my rare two days off in a row to an apartment deep clean. They are as beautiful as they are delicious.
