Hank, Stanley and the Steingolds

Ms. Haubenstock ladled the accolades on “Henry IV, Part 2” in today’s T-D. I like the rollercoaster opening line, in particular, though my impressions of the goings-on were a little different than Susan's. More on that in a couple of days or so…

My wife and my best friend joined me at Sycamore Rouge's "Streetcar Named Desire" on Friday. It was pretty much the best company I could have asked for when taking in a play and so I was extra happy that the show didn't suck. I'll expound more on just how incredibly much it didn't suck in my opinion, also in a couple of days.

In the meantime, you may enjoy taking in this new blog by the Steingold sisters, two locals with some pretty impressive theater experience who have decided to share their often hilariously biting senses of humor via their perspectives on the theater scene. My favorite line of theirs that I’ve read so far is their impression of the Barksdale show, “The Clean House,” based on the audition announcement: “It's pretty much "Menopause: The Musical" but with Portuguese people. And without music. And with a man.”

I think I (and you too!) can look forward to many more laughs from these stage-oriented sisters in the months to come.

Since we were so much with the not-sucking, think we could get a shout-out in the "Now Showing" column on the left there? :)

Also, Ms. Haubenstock requested tix to our show but did not attend. Hmmm.

For you, Ms. Angelika, anything!
