Plays (Page 2)

The group on stage at the Iceman Cometh led me to contemplate what it means when I say “Grab Your Group and GO”. The characters in this Eugene O’Neill play represent the antithesis of grabbing your group and going. This is a group that gathers and stays and waits…

Not sure what I was thinking by scheduling three Broadway shows directly on the heels of a long trip to Japan, but I am certain I must have thought it was a good idea at the time.  In fact it was a very good idea…

I had the hard fought opportunity to see Tiny Beautiful Things on stage earlier this week. I had the good fortune of receiving this book in the mail some years ago. And now for me the two are intertwined. To read more…

Ninety minutes of almost every possible human trial and tribulation (seriously so many – check it out – I made a list below) packed into one Thanksgiving dinner served on paper plates. A family of four glued together with the power of unconditional love…
