Here’s a preview of the National Tour of Fun Home that I wrote for the Austin American-Statesman, featuring an interview with the incredibly smart and erudite playwright/lyricist Lisa Kron.
I’ve got a new review up of a strange and delightful show at Hyde Park Theatre, Jen Silverman’s The Moors.
There’s some exciting news about a couple new, big projects coming in the future, but I can’t quite reveal them publicly just yet.
In the meantime, I have a new review up for the Austin American-Statesman, this one for the Zilker summer musical production of The Wizard of Oz.
It’s the slow season in Austin theater, so just one review for you right now, of the classic Larry Kramer play The Normal Heart at City Theatre.
I wrote a blog post for the University Press of Mississippi, publishers of my book (Retcon Game: Retroactive Continuity and the Hyperlinking of America), updating its context in the era of “alternative facts” and “fake news.”
I’m very proud of this short piece and I’m glad I was given the opportunity to respond to current events in a way that (I hope) doesn’t invalidate a large part of the book’s thesis!
I’ve got a new review out today, for the body-positive show My Big Fat Bahookie at the Vortex Theatre. Check it out!
Here’s some musical reviews I wrote this past month for the Austin American-Statesman.
First up is a sadly timely (and chillingly disturbing) production of Cabaret at St. Ed’s University.
Next, a solid production of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill (the almost one-woman show about Billie Holliday) at Zach Theatre.
And finally, the Broadway tour of Phantom of the Opera, which is, y’know, still Phantom of the Opera.
I’m very excited to announce that my first book, Retcon Games: Retroactive Continuity and the Hyperlinking of America, is now available from the University Press of Mississippi.
In addition to buying it directly from the press by the above link, you can find it online at the usual places, including Amazon, so please order yourself a copy (or bug/beg your library to do so)!
