I can’t access Facebook at work so I can’t include the links that I want to below. But if you are lucky enough to be able to get to Facebook, they should be easy enough to find.
First, Theatre IV’s next show, “The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)” is opening on Friday. This will mark the (possibly welcome) return of a certain pint-sized Timberline to the stage after his adventures out west. It also marks the (definitely welcome) return of David Janeski to the video production realm and he’s posted at least one (maybe more) behind-the-scenes video about the production on Facebook that is quite witty and entertaining, as they always are. I can’t find a link on the Theatre IV site but you can search FB for it.
Update: Here's a link to Theatre IV's page.
Second, last night I stumbled upon the Best Dates series that Richmond Shakespeare has been doing as part of its promotion of “Romeo and Juliet” and it’s a lot of fun. Liz Blake White and Jeff Cole are cute as a pair of buttons and the captions to some of the pics are drolly hilarious. Again, I can’t offer a direct link but you can go to the Richmond Shakespeare site on FB and find it.
Update: Here's a link to Richmond Shakespeare's page.
Speaking of R&J, the RVANews review by Susan Howson showed up yesterday. It’s worth a read. And speaking of reviews, Style has Mr. Griset’s take on “Dog Sees God” in this week’s issue.
As I hope you’ve noticed, the links to other blogs and websites are starting to appear over on the right side of the page. I still haven’t rebuilt the links to individual actors, including the “expatriates” section. But I’ll give a quick shout-out to one ex-pat who has a new show that was recently reviewed on the NY Theatre site. As per usual, former Richmonder Chris Harcum is wowing audiences with his one-man bravura performances. Way to go Chris!
Have a happy “hump day” and look for my guaranteed-to-be-biased review of “BFG” coming this weekend!
