Flying Blind

I’ve been out of town so I’m somewhat out of touch (more so than usual) but I did find Ms. H’s review of “Widow’s Blind Date.” Susan’s review peaks my interest in many ways, among the least relevant being, does Ed Slipek list himself as “Eddie” in the program? I’ve known Ed for years and never thought of him as “Eddie.” Is that his “street” name? “Blind Date” sounds intense so I feel I need to check it out somehow; the last time I missed an intense production at Firehouse it was “The Late Henry Moss,” something I rue to this day.

And maybe I’m just getting older and more confused (in addition to out of touch) but wasn’t “Tuna Christmas” supposed to open this weekend at the Mill? Did it? The opening date was announced as Nov. 13, which I expect meant there were previews last Thursday and Friday since they usually open shows on Saturdays. But then the Sunday T-D listed opening night as this weekend. I don’t know – either the Mill’s scheduling is confusing or I’m slowly sliding into the realm of needing someone to explain how to use the touch-screen voting machines…

The way I understand it, Tuna did preview on Thursday and would generally have had its official opening this past Saturday, but because a group bought out the house Saturday night, they moved the opening to next week.

The Widow's Blind Date was so good I almost walked out. Intense. Incredible performances. Great set! Intense. (It merited repeating.)

Aha! Thanks for the clarification Anon. It is much appreciated.

There was actually plenty of room at Swift Creek on Saturday--not sure what that was about--and I did review the show that night, but the review didn't make it into today's paper. My editor says it will be in Tuesday's.
