Notes from a Wandering Laptop

Coming Up...

Rewrites and Submissions

Pushing Spellbound out into the world, so I need to add it to the website here, and also on the New Play Exchange.  Submitting plays as short as one minute and as long as full lengths out there as well.  Trying to keep the conveyer belt cranking stuff out to as many opportunities as I can, trying to find something that lands.  Meanwhile, some other tinkering with TV Boyfriend continues.  Getting closer to the final structure at last, I think.

New Chris Koza Album

My most reliable muse these days, the music of Chris Koza, has a new album added to the catalog, the new Sleepwalkers Part 1. Album release party this Friday 4/26 at the Parkway Theater is going to be good for what ails me, both personally and artistically.  Looking forward to it.

An Unnecessary Death

We're all getting some closure on the recent death of a co-worker, but it doesn't mean I'm not still angry.

Theater Reviews

Sandbox Theatre transforms their space into a tribute to the Voyager spacecraft Golden Record Project, and the hope of humanity for a better future. It's a great piece of theater, you should get one of the few tickets available (thru 5/4) - 5 stars

Coming up - Prime Productions' exploration of future living with artificial intelligence in Marjorie Prime

Other recent reviews - 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.
