I’m making my directorial debut this weekend in a production of the deliciously dark comedy “The House of Yes.” (You may be familiar with this story via the 1997 film starring Parker Posey.) I’m elated with what we’ve put together and hope you’ll join us. Tickets are going fast, so reserve yours at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s show the staff at Rosetta’s Kitchen some love
I’m hoping at least one person will take me up on this challenge:
This evening (Wednesday, January 16), I witnessed a man announce to the staff at Rosetta’s Kitchen that he wasn’t tipping them because he was charged a 50-cent fee for making a credit card transaction less than $10. My challenge to anyone who might read this while they’re downtown this evening: Please consider stopping by Rosetta’s Kitchen and dropping a dollar or two in the tip jar. Let’s offset this man’s nastiness and show some love to the staff of a locally owned business that gives back to our community in many ways, such as through its Everyone Eats program, which offers a sliding-scale meal to those who might not be able to pay full price.
And kudos to the young lady behind the register this evening; she showed much more grace to the man than I would have.
Thrilling special effects! Brilliant juggling! Dazzling puppetry! Terrifying(-ish) monsters! It’s the biggest production to-date at The Magnetic Field, and I’m elated to be appearing in it as Henry Victor Frankenstein Whale. I’m also excited to work with an immensely talented playwright/director, cast and crew that I’ve long admired but had yet to work with. As our monst… um, creature says: “Do come. Maybe get dressed first, but come!”
