Bad Blogger

I've been a bad, negligent blogger this past week or so. Sorry. Too much travel in too short of time has taken its toll. I have much to say about my little sojourn to the Warehouse Theatre in Greenville to see "Taming of the Shrew." But that will have to wait until tomorrow. First I wanted to mention the review of "There Goes the Bride" at the Mill that showed up in the Times-Dispatch today. It was not exactly easy to find in print and even harder to find online but it was worth the search because it mentions favorably several of the nicest folks in local theater, specifically, Vicki McLeod and Richard Koch. 

They have been mainstays in the Richmond stage scene for many years and yet they both have the cheerful energy and vibrant good looks of teenagers. To the extent that it's possible to have a crush on a couple, I've had one on them for a long time, and I'm looking forward to heading out to the Mill to see "Bride" even though I, like Susan H. at the T-D, am not a big farce fan and I'm not even reviewing it.

Given that "Bride" also has Christine Schneider, John Hagadorn, Jolene Carroll, Brandon Becker, Joy Williams and of course Andra Honaker, it may qualify as one of the nicest casts ever! Regardless of their talent, I'm thinking Mr. Width may have assembled these folks just because he wanted the most pleasant directorial experience ever. Nice plan!

On Saturday night I was in the Shenandoah foothills of Nelson County in a facsimile of a Lakota sweat lodge prostrate on the muddy ground trying not to pass out from the extreme heat. It was a birthday party.

So I'm sorry I missed opening night but you can bet the T-lines will make it out for 'Bride' before August rolls around.
