Mash Ups

As much as it pains me to do so, I'm going to have to say something positive about the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Today I stumbled upon their "MashUp" video segments that they do as part of "inRich.TV" and I found them downright endearing and even a little bit clever. And perhaps most shocking of all, they have done some bits about theater! Back in November, they did a spot on "The Eight: Reindeer Monologues" at Fielden's and in their latest spot, they give a little mention to the upcoming Dick Buttkiss and the Tight Ends Christmas musical, "The Christmas Story (According to Uncle Daddy)." For some reason, they only seem to cover theater in conjunction with stories about tattoos...not sure what's up with that.

Still, the MashUps are a little irreverent and moderately hip -- who knows, maybe they could help make theater a draw for those wacky kids out there...
