Tech Week

It’s tech week for “Best Christmas Pageant Ever” meaning that there is a patina of outright insanity spread thinly over the usual craziness of the T-line household. That, plus recovering from Thanksgiving, getting ready for the holidays, and battling an incipient case of insomnia has kept me off the blogger these days. If nothing else, when I completely crack up, I’ll be sure and post here to that effect.

The good thing about others running about being in shows is that I might get to sneak out to see a couple. It seems that Scott Wichmann has hit another one out of the park, at least that is certainly Ms. Lewis’s opinion as per her review of “This Wonderful Life” at the Barksdale, so I’ll probably slip over there this weekend to check it out. And “Inspecting Carol” opens this weekend at Sycamore Rouge. It’s an intriguing sounding show and I’m really hoping to get down there to see how it works on stage. And the family-friendly “Sanders Family” out at the Tavern will have to be seen as well.

Congrats are in order for the recently engaged Ms. Steinberg and much thanks to the Marks / Honaker team for producing a singularly hilarious cooking video. I apologize in advance for any deliriousness that appears in this space in the next several days. I’m not in full control of my faculties.

It's a great way to kick off this holiday season. The cast includes Terry Gau, Ben Willson, Stephen Ryan, Rebecca Muhleman, Emma Follmer, Shane Harris, Thomas Eichler and Katy Anna Worthington. Brett Zwerdling is the composer and musician, the production is directed by Laurie Follimer.

Do you have someone in Best Christmas Pageant? I've been reading your blog for a while, and my child is in the play so I was just curious.

Hi actor's mom!
My son Cooper is in "Pageant," rough-housing as Ollie Herdman. My lovely wife, Holly, is also on-board as church lady, Mrs. Slocum. I'll be around the theater occasionally over the next couple of weeks -- please introduce yourself!

What a small world! I met Holly at a party recently, and my daughter is playing Alice. I have already done my time backstage wrangling the kids, but will definitely be there for carpooling and a few more performances. I will look for you.
