Opening this Friday. This is a very different role for me.
Local newspaper profile of a production of Neil Simon’s Rumors that I’m in. We’ve been working very hard on this. Five…six nights a week. Late nights.
If you’re creeping on me you could check out the Wilder Weekend, a performance of three Thornton Wilder shorts, the theatre group I’m involved in is putting on this weekend.
Our director speaks with Todd Moe of North Country Public Radio about the program.
The licensing agencies that be took away the rights to a modified performance of Little Shop of Horrors performed by the Boxcar Theater Company. The modifications violate the terms and conditions that performance groups agree to in order to be allowed to do a show.

The problem that Nick doesn’t seem to want to acknowledge is that the words “LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS” are what sold his tickets. He needed the authors’ work in order to do his job of making wonderful, thrillingly creative theater out of it. But to suggest that those authors shouldn’t be allowed to collaborate (by their approval) in his process is grossly unfair.
I think if you’ve ever used a Creative Commons license you may feel the same way.
