Go see "The Other Josh Cohen." It holds two lessons I take to heart. Created by David Rossmer and Steve Rosen (who also star) it has gone through years of development and workshops and has come out in a sharp distinct performance that does not feel like it came from a committee but from the … Continue reading Review – The Other Josh Cohen

I admit I've only been right a few times but this time I mean it. It is … Continue reading Cincinnati Reds Pitchers and Catchers report for their ultimate championship season!

The performers, Eric Diamond, Maera Daniel Hagage, Babak Mehrabi, Will Pierson, and Carly Ruda have been terrific in early rehearsals. We strongly recommend you … Continue reading Next short play is in rehearsals!

Considering the nature of this National Day I am including enough buffer space to prevent you viewing this graphic … Continue reading National Shower With A Friend Day
Today is National Home Made Soup Day. There is nothing more warming than a bowl of delicious fresh made soup during a dark winter. Did you see the game last night? Most of America did, I'm sure. Actually I prefer a defensive match so I enjoyed myself. I don't need lots of scoring to enjoy … Continue reading National Home Made Soup Day
