Twitter is kind of an amazing thing, you guys. Through my fellow theatre director/dramaturg/nerd-type, Catherine Blake Smith, I was introduced to Elissa Goetschius, who is fighting the MAAAN, maaan! by creating a list of female directors across the country. Being the social media whore that I am, I immediately contacted her and got myself on her list. […]
Something has been pissing me off lately, and that is all the freakin’ productions of “Next to Normal” that are happening across the country. I realize the rights to this show were released in 2012, but for effing serious. EVERYONE is doing this musical. I get that it’s a good musical, but for EVERYONE to […]
Today, construction on 12th Avenue Arts finally started with a ground breaking ceremony! Unfortunately, due to some person things that came up, I missed it. However! I am very pleased for them, as well as for theatres that will occupy and manage the theatre spaces – Washington Ensemble Theatre, New Century Theatre Company, and Strawberry […]

I’ve been sitting on the following articles for a few weeks now. Natalie V. Hall’s #2TweetorNot2Tweet Gwydion Suilebhan’s Theatrical Biodiversity Alex Barron on HowlRound’s Blog – 13P: Easy to Revere, Tough to Recreate And also some good news for Seattle: building 12th Avenue Arts is well underway, and Capitol Hill’s Pike & Pine St corridor […]
In my rabid critique of all things Intiman, I of course need to update about the Intiman’s next theatre festival. Andrew Russell announced that, officially, the theatre company will be back in the summer/fall of 2013 with four more plays. I will say, based on the press release, I am much more interested in the […]
My favorite Seattle event that I basically never get to attend because of rehearsal schedules. BUT IT’S ALMOST HERE AND I LOVE IT. Arts Crush 2012!
Since I’m on the Intiman’s mailing list, I just got this note in my inbox: Dear Friends of Intiman, Exactly a year ago the Board of Trustees invited me to be Artistic Director of this theatre. At the time it meant a promising position with an immense amount of work ahead. The schedule was tight, […]
Please understand that when I type in all caps like that, I am being sarcastic. Via a Facebook friend (who is a great director who happens to be Indian-American), I was pointed to this lovely article: Moises Kaufman can kiss my ass & here’s why. The blog’s author, Erin Quill, is a Chinese/Irish/Welsh-American actress. Emphasis […]
