Gotta have faith

Too many choices tonight. There’s the preview of the third annual Acts of Faith Festival starting at 7pm at Second Pres. downtown on Fifth Street. A good excuse to check out the indoor digs for Richmond Shakespeare as well as find out what interesting theater might be in store for us during the cold winter months. Interestingly enough, American Theatre magazine just happens to have an article called “Articles of Faith” in the latest issue, talking about Christian theater. (Here’s a link to the blurb – for the whole article, you gotta get the print edition.)

I’ll be attending “I Am My Own Wife” but also trying to squeeze in a swing by the Anderson Gallery for the opening of the “Artificial Light” exhibit which also starts at 7pm. Pretty regularly these days the Anderson is coming up with unique installations that capture the imagination of even a visual arts novice like myself. In everything I’ve read about this one, it just sounds really cool.

Y’all have a good weekend!

I saw "I Am My Own Wife" last night and have to say that I am continually amazed by the seemingly unlimited talent that Scott has. The peace is completely engaging from beginning to end and I left wanting to know more…which is what great theatre is all about. The script by Doug Wright is quite good, but quite frankly it is Scott’s ability to bring each character to life in such detail that makes this production so thrilling to watch. BRAVO Scott and Maury and the Firehouse Theatre!!! I will spread the good word!
