Melancholy Play! [Jan. 19th, 2008|01:25 pm]
[mood |pleasedpleased]
[music |Melancholy Play samples]

First an aside - I want a smart phone. They're like technological candy. I have no use for one and the cost really more than I can justify.... but the Blackberry's, the iPhones, and so on are so totally sweet. Want. *drool*


First warning of Melancholy Play! promotional postcard behind hereCollapse )

Get presale tickets at BrownPaperTickets and save a little bit off the door price. Presale tickets currently only available before the First. And they are only available for shows through the 24th though the run will go until at least the Second of March.

Sarah Ruhl won the MacArthur Genius award a couple years ago for her various works and having watched this play come together I have to say I think it's really very good. An abstract from BrownPaperTickets:

Thanks to medical advances such as Prozac, Americans can finally fulfill their constitutional destiny to not only pursue happiness, but embrace it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But is that a good thing? Sarah Ruhl addresses this question and others in her 2002 MELANCHOLY PLAY. Inspired by Robert Burton's 17th Century tome, The Anatomy of Melancholy, Ruhls play is a mad-cap ode to an emotion that is rapidly disappearing from the American landscape.

Only Two More Weeks of Midsummer! [Oct. 24th, 2007|11:21 am]
[Tags|, ]

Don't miss your chance to experience the whole thing live and before your eyes - playing Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm - EXTENDED through November 3.

Write Act Rep's re-telling of this immortal story will highlight a more earthy and ethereal twist. The romantic paths of two sets of couples are complicated by their entrance into the fairyland woods where the King and Queen of the Fairies preside with the impish folk character of Robin Goodfellow – or Puck as he is more commonly known - plying his trade. When a bumptious band of "rude mechanicals" stumble into the action, the supernatural world collides with the real world…and Nature decides what is best used or discarded when, and if, its blessings are bestowed upon mankind.

Directed by John Jeffrey Soroka
Choreography by Pamela Moore
Written by William Shakespeare
Produced by John Lant & Write Act Repertory Company

CROP Walk is Sunday! [Oct. 19th, 2007|01:59 pm]

If you haven't given but have been planning to - time is running out! Donate online or contact me to donate via cash or check.

All over the world people are having to make hard choices, in third world countries and our own backyard. Do they send their daughters out for water, or skip the water so the girls can get an education? Do they beg for some change for a meal or check in early at a shelter for one of a limited number of beds? Please give a helping hand, any amount will do!

Thanks to those who have donated already!!

CROP Walk 2007 [Oct. 16th, 2007|03:20 pm]
[mood |hopefulhopeful]

Hey all,

I'm again participating in the CROP Walk this year. Every year around the country ecumenical groups come together to raise money to fight poverty and hunger both in local communities and third world countries.

The funds go to building water reservoirs near villages, teaching individuals how to provide for themselves with advanced skills in farming, carpentry, technology, medicine, economics and so on. A donation of $10 can provide enough malaria medicine for all of the children in a village - death by dehydration due to malaria is the number one killer of children around the world. A donation of $20 would outfit a house with running water. A donation of $50 would provide a family with a cow - which in turn would provide the family with an ongoing income. $100 would be enough for both lessons in carpentry as well as the basic tools.

A quarter of all the donations go to local food banks and shelters to help with the indigent and food insecure people in our own neighborhoods.

Please donate online (or contact me if you prefer to donate cash or by check).

We walk to raise awareness for the poor and hungry. We walk because they walk.

(Loosely) Lysistrata! [Aug. 15th, 2007|09:48 am]
Write Act Repertory's play production (Loosely) Lysistrata is still going!

An outrageous spin on the classic Greek comedy, Loosely Lysistrata will make you laugh! cry! and... groan at the many puns played on the names of defenseless ancient Greeks. Oy.

The show is Thursdays through Saturdays 19 July through 25 August. Seats are $10 on Thursdays and $20 on Fridays and Saturdays. Since the theatre is pretty small I recommend making reservations - 323 469 3113.
