The Great Toilet Debate, Let’s all get in one line

Quote of the Day: Always go to the bathroom when you have a chance. King George V, found on Brainy Quotes. I wrote this post about a week ago, but didn’t publish it. Then, I saw the following Facebook post from my friend Sandy, which produced some funny reading about bathrooms, lines, and a lack of giving a shit where you go. (I don’t normally swear, but this one seemed well placed.) From Sandy’s page: Okay…………..I have a confession to make and if any of you unfriend me, I will understand……..For decades now, when I am on a Band Trip and the...

Meeting Lee Blessing at The Playwrights’ Center

Quote of the Day: Gender is our place in the world. Character named Mandy, or Randall, in Lee Blessings’ newest play, Minneapolis/St. Paul. The Twin Cities Theater Bloggers were invited to a reading of his latest work, and a discussion with the playwright afterwards. The rest of the line goes like this You’re expected to like this. You’re reliable for that. Timely theme, don’t you think? And, the title refers to the twin cities in Minnesota that are separated by the Mississippi River. Some people don’t cross the river.

Review of Trouble in Mind at The Guthrie Theater

Quote of the Day: Ever since I’ve know you, you’ve never been trouble. Says the director Al Manners (John Catron) to the actor Wiletta Mayer (Margo Moorer) who is playing a mother in the deep south in a play about a lynching.

Sign of the Green Dragon, Cover Reveal and Review

Quote of the Day: Until Mei Ling is avenged and she lies where the wind and water sleep as one, she will suffer greatly, and her peaceful spirit will not bless her family…the proof of this man’s guilt lies with her in the Dragon Twin. from the secret letter inside the hidden box found in a dark cave under the Sign of the Green Dragon, a marvelous book written by C. Lee McKenzie. I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing an advanced e-reader copy. It was like reading the Hardy Boys mysteries or watching the Goonies or National Treasure. McKenzie...

IWSG May 2016

Quote of the Day: In the time of your life – live! That time is short and it doesn’t return again. It is slipping away while I write this and while you read it, and the monosyllable of the clock is Loss, Loss, Loss, unless you devote your heart to its opposition. Tennessee Williams, in an essay that originally appeared in The New York Times Drama Section, November 30, 1947 – four days before the New York opening of A Street Car Named Desire, which I read in the introduction to a 1947 copy of the play that I picked up at a used...
