"The list is good. The list is LIFE!"

What do they get?

Mac said...

Do your fact-checking! Everyone on that list is either the nephew or the personal trainer of an NYTheatre staff member. Don't be fooled!

That's cool (no pun intended) about FRIGID. My friend Christina Augello runs the EXIT in San Francisco and was involved in this last year.

Three cheers for Cyndy Marion, who directed my play in the Fringe this summer. She is a fantastic director, and I'm so glad to see her recognized!

Wilson said...

i am neither anyone's personal trainer or their nephew. i am the head of a company that has busted our ass the hard way for the last 2 years. whoever the "mac" poster is -- should do his/her own fact checking.

Kevin Doyle -

"Mac" is Mac Rogers and was kidding. He's on the list as well. Both of you guys have done some tremendous work this year.
