This is all I can tell you

I consider myself fortunate to be the one to tell everyone about Sandbox’s new productions. It’s a bit like giving a friend a mixtape or introducing them to Still of the Night with Roy Scheider and Meryl Streep (Seriously, check that out if you haven’t. It’s great. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084732/), only I’m doing so in a formal tone. Or as formal as… Read more →

Taking on a special role

Rehearsal for War with the Newts is underway and there is much for me to be happy and excited about. The cast will be performing all the music for this show.

That was sometime around 2003, when we moved to Minneapolis. I fell in love with the ratty paperback. So out of date, so topical, so anachronistic, so…… Read more →

Marie-Jeanne Valet from the House

I had the pleasure of seeing Sandbox’s Marie-Jeanne Valet, Who Defeated La Bete du Gevaudan, at Duluth’s, Teatro-Zuccone. In addition to seeing a great show, I also visited a very dear group of friends I don’t get to see often enough. An incredibly creative group that I’ve been making art with for the past 15 years. The majority of these… Read more →
