Earlier this year, kids from Dorothy and Mark’s class at Durham’s Central Park School — who were in rehearsals for a school production of The Wizard of Oz — got a guided tour of Manbites Dog Theater. Later, they sent cards of thanks, telling us what they learned.

"…the Durham, NC-based theater
can be seen from space."

I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.
 –– Wallace Stevens

Current show at Manbites.

Kids in a suburban neighborhood immerse themselves in a sinister online game, but when the lines blur between reality and fantasy, fear takes on a life of its own. To get out alive: find the lawn gnome, drink the chocolate milk, and at all costs avoid the Neighborhood Association!

I'm back in New York December 11-20, before Jeff and I head back to North Carolina. We've got tickets to a couple of exciting shows. Anyone want to join us? Check out the descriptions and dates and if you're interested grab a ticket (fast -- they're both likely to sell out once the reviews are out) and let us know you're coming. We can figure out a place for dinner beforehand and/or drinks after.



The Last Cargo Cult, Saturday December 12 at 7:00. The Public Theater.
Master storyteller Mike Daisey brings his latest show to New York. Last year, during the global economic meltdown, he traveled to a remote South Pacific island whose people worship America and its cargo, and has now returned to tell the tale. More about the show.


Brief Encounter, Thursday December 17 at 8:00, St. Ann's Warehouse
Kneehigh Theatre's adaptation of the 1946 David Lean film (which is based on the Noël Coward one-act Still Life). The production uses live theater and remade film footage, as well as songs of Noël Coward. More about the show.

Deduce the location and name the nearby theater and play
that Jeff and I attended Saturday afternoon.

The recent sudden closing of the Broadway revival of Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs (after just one week of performances) and the cancellation of its companion piece Broadway Bound (before it opened) caused a lot of consternation and debate in the press and the theater blogosphere. Some blamed the crash and burn on a lack of television stars, some on unappreciative audiences (though others disagree), and some on just plain old bad producing.

The Playgoer blog evaluates the arguments. Playgoer’s conclusion:

Memo to serious drama: Abandon Broadway before it abandons you.
