Support Local Theaters!
Local theaters do some of the best work. Unfortunately, then often do not get the recognition they deserve, It is my intention to post reviews of shows I attend. While it is true that I made my living for almost twenty years working for the larger venues as an IATSE Local 20 and IATSE Local 13 stagehand, I also worked at some of the smaller venues as an AEA stage manager and for educational tours. I have seen the best and the worse productions as both a professional and as an audience member. Although I am no longer working in the industry due to a work related TBI, I would like to offer my insights to others regarding the performing arts. Finally, I would also like to acknowledge that Minneapolis is home to the nationally and internationally recognized Playwrights’ Center. I am fortunate to have been a long time member, and after a long recovery period I hope to be a more active member again. Your comments to my post are greatly appreciated. If there are shows you would like me to see and review, please let me know and I’ll do my best to do so.
