Yesterday was April Fool's Day

Yesterday was April Fool's Day. In order to have fun, I posted a photo. I was forced to remove it from the blog. It seemed to upset people. 

So for all of you that saw it, I apologize. I promise: I returned all the children in the photo to recess.

UPDATE: Belated April Fool's Day. This do not happen.

One of those thoughtful rejection letters

I can't tell if I appreciate the nice, detailed single-sentence review that is now the trend in rejection letters from large theaters - or if I feel a little condescended to by it.

Or maybe, when receiving a rejection letter, I'm difficult to please.

The Killer at Theater for a New Audience

Pretty excited about The Killer by Eugene Ionesco at Theater for a New Audience with Michael Shannon. Just read it for the first time recently, shockingly enough.

Ionesco is my huckleberry.
