Four shows opening this weekend, truly something for everyone. "Much Ado About Nothing" is Richmond Shakespeare's first offering in the new CenterStage space, "Shining City" is the first show under Henley Street's new Artistic Director, and RTP's "The New Century" -- well, it's got 'new' right there in the title. So I think 'new' -- and busy -- is the theme of this weekend. Not sure how "Ugly Duckling" at Theatre IV fits in with that theme exactly but I'll think on it.

Also, the first ad for the RTCC awards is in today's T-D. So that's kind of a new thing, too.

Honker Quacker finds "new" meaning in life after he discovers that true beauty comes from within.

Haha! Rock it out, Bruce!

I have been hearing nothing but GREAT things about THE UGLY DUCKLING and admittedly wasn't incredibly stoked about it until I heard the cast (Aly Wepplo, Durron Tyree, Eric Pastore, Gordon Bass, Ali Thibodeau) and all the great buzz from those involved. I'm really looking forward to it.

Speaking of new and Aly Wepplo, staged reading of DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD by Bert V. Royal at the Firehouse on Tuesday night at 7:30! It's new...ish.
