All in All, I'd Rather Be in Philadelphia...

Every September, Catherine and I look forward to taking the train down to Philadelphia for the Live Arts Festival + Philly Fringe. For us, it's an easy, inexpensive and extremely rewarding trip: we usually see 5-7 plays over two days and even the least successful productions are still very good.

This year, we won't be making it and we're very disappointed. I'm especially sorry that we won't be seeing Geoff Soebelle and Charlotte Ford's Flesh and Blood and Fish and Fowl—Geoff is a fantastic performer whom we've known for years and we really liked Charlotte's work last year in Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental's Flamingo/Winnebago. We'd also been looking forward to the new LCI show, THE MeLTING BRiDgE and Verdensteatret's louder. Fortunately, this last show is coming to P.S. 122 later this month, so we don't miss it completely and perhaps some of the others will make their way up here, too.
