To all my L.A. acting friends - actually, anyone that lives in L.A. YOU MUST GO AND SEE THIS SHOW. My old classmates may remember how hard I was to please when it came to quality of performance and production. I have seen some truly great theater over the years: Ingmar Bergman doing "Hamlet" at B.A.M.; John Malkovich originating the the lead role in "Burn This" on Broadway; Enda Walsh's plays at St. Ann's in Brooklyn. THIS SHOW IS UP THERE WITH THOSE. Insanely creative and entertaining, as well as being disturbing sometimes. Talya and I saw this show @ South Coast Rep. last year and were blown away. Please make the effort to see this. Four Clowns is a physical, musical and emotional journey into what it means to be human. Follow four clowns - sad, mischievous, angry and nervous - as they lament and reminisce about their past. As the old adage goes, ‘laughter is the best medicine,’ but laughter comes most earnestly when reflecting on past sorrows. As the clowns tell their tales of woe and elati ...
Spent the morning cleaning, and now doing what I should have been doing all summer: reading and Olympics slumming. Reading Michael John LaChiusa's "See What I Wanna See" and then moving on to "Everything Was Possible" by Ted Chapin, "The Season" by William Goldman and poking and prodding through "Guide To Producing Plays And Musicals" by Frederic B. Vogel and Ben Hodges. If I can get through deciphering Enda Walsh's "Disco Pigs," that would be a plus!
John Tiffany and Steven Hoggett, the team behind “Black Watch,” take on a quieter project: a musical adaptation of the film “Once,” about young musicians falling in love.

Most importantly, my most heartfelt congratualtions to J Michael Zygo. I originally saw him at an open call I was forced to attend by Equity (the actors' union). Now he has performed on national television at the TONYS! Mike is an integral part of the cast of a now multiple Tony-award-winning Broadway Musical!
