Coming Up...

Back In Minnesota

I arrived back on Wednesday afternoon, got the truck unloaded with the help of a moving crew, who also got the piano to its new home spot (piano tuner in process in a week's time). Finally saw Avengers: Endgame. Started back at the second job over the weekend, back into the main job as of tomorrow. Adjusting to the new normal - living in MN, while keeping a hand in helping out remotely with paperwork, financials and advocacy for Mom.

Mom's Brain Tumor

It's large. It's inoperable. Even with treatment, 12 months is an optimistic prognosis.

Here's mom's Caring Bridge page -

There's still nothing about the situation right now that doesn't suck.

But if you feel so inclined, there's a way you can help me better help Mom and my brother, as I shuttle back and forth in the coming months between Minnesota and Pennsylvania. A friend started a Go Fund Me page to help with expenses -

Theater Reviews

Out of town and out of the theater loop right now but, recent reviews - Sandbox Theatre's Golden Record Project - 5 stars; Prime Production's Marjorie Prime - 3 stars; Frank Theatre's The Cradle Will Rock - 4.5 stars; Paige Collette and Tatiana Pavela's The Monica Meditations, and Brandi Alexander - 4.5 stars; Girl Friday Productions/Park Square's The Skin of Our Teeth - 5 stars; Chain Reaction Theatre's new showcase What Guys Really Want - 3.5 stars

Just in case anyone was wondering why the steep drop off in the number of theater reviews in recent months, I posted some words of explanation here.

Coverage of the 2018 Minnesota Fringe Festival can be found on the blog here.

And here's some links to a roudup of the best theater I saw in 2017, and the best theater I saw in 2016.
