RIP Edward Albee

September 18th, 2016

. It’s weird to me to think that I do the same thing as Edward Albee.  I suppose technically we’re both playwrights, but you can’t really compare Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to one of my six-minute plays about sock monkeys or dead dwarves or two guys talking about convoys. Throughout my life, I’ve been […]

. Raven Theatre, where I’m lucky enough to be employed, is currently doing The House of Blue Leaves by John Guare.  I’ve long enjoyed Guare’s work, so I wrote up an appreciation of him for a Raven e-blast.  We weren’t able to use my musings, but I thought I might share them here. So here […]
