Year End 2013

The blog continues to exist, in a reduced form, as I write here a bit less all the time. Still, I'm glad to have it, just in case I want to complain about something. Or promote something. Or show you a picture of a dragon.

2013 was a solid year.

Why We Left Brooklyn played to many sold out houses, with a terrific cast. Reviews were sort of all over the place, but mostly positive, and audiences definitely enjoyed it. Or were made to feel very bad by it. A win-win.

Matthew Trumbull's The Zebra Shirt of Lonely Children was extremely well-received at the Minnesota Fringe Festival, and I'm proud of my contributions to it, and to Kyle's work on it, too.

Plus, When Is A Clock got cover art and a little write up (by me) in Samuel French's Mystery Month offerings.

And The Metaphor was published by Smith & Kraus.

All good. But, of course, much more to come!

Theater coverage continues to decline

Who or what is to blame for this awful trend?
