Re: “Ostrander Nominees, 2016

I'll address some of that in my annual "Who got robbed" column, Susanne though this wasn't the Hattiloo's strongest season. Growing pains in the new space -- Not unlike POTS when they first moved across the street. It happens.

Re: “Ostrander Nominees, 2016

Greatly appreciate all the artistic works and artists being considered for honors.

Horrendous not to see Hattiloo's excellent actors, actresses, and related artists recognized much more. Hattiloo's productions, wonderful content and amazing performances are tragically under-rated here.

Re: “New Editions: Pelican Shakespeare Gets a Facelift

Love the "silly and snobbish" phrase. I always find those discussions about authorship a bit tedious.

Re: “"Orpheus Descending" is Ragged but Right

Chris, you stun me, as usual. You know I know my music. How inspired to whip out Merle's classic "The Running Kind" and tie it onto 'The Fugitive Kind' and 'Orpheus Descending's' ratty ass tail (tale :) ). I've worked with just about everyone in that cast, and you're right about them. Props to you. And props to the cast and director.

Re: “"Film" and "NotFilm": Buster Keaton & Samuel Beckett visit Brooks Museum

Yeah, but that Crystal Gayle, Tom Waits soundtrack for One From the Heart belongs in every collection.

Re: “"Film" and "NotFilm": Buster Keaton & Samuel Beckett visit Brooks Museum

Nice article Chris. I saw this odd film many years ago in college as part of our film club. It's definitely worth seeing again, magnificent failure that it was. Its bastard cinematic stepchild has to be Coppola's "One From the Heart". Another magnificent failure.

Hey! I'm Daniel Mueller :)

Hope everything went well for the show! Bob is a genius and I have no doubt it's a beautiful production!

Re: “"The Wiz" is a Hit... Because, Because, Because, Because

I don't disagree with that at all, RE interest, and say as much all the time. But this Wiz is pretty amateur stuff, and impossible sight lines and poor sound are a matter of fact, sadly, not opinion. I suspect you'll be in a minority with Starcatcher, though, as is always the case with art & entertainment, milage will vary. It's a fine thing. Too glib by half, but still a grand adventure.

Re: “"The Wiz" is a Hit... Because, Because, Because, Because

Ouch…Fairly harsh review. Interestingly, I absolutely hated “Peter and the Starcatcher.” So much so that my guests and I left at intermission. Afterwards, we had an interesting discussion about whether it was the worst play we’ve ever seen. Different strokes for different folks, as they say. I haven’t seen Hattiloo’s production of “The Wiz.” (No luck getting tickets.) So I can’t defend it. But I would encourage everyone not to be swayed by a critic’s review if a play, movie or anything else interests you.

Re: “Defying Gravity: "Peter and the Starcatcher" Flies Without Strings

Thanks. And sorry, I missed some autocorrect corrections. Even the title was supposed to be "Defining Gravity." I'll adjust the copy to include Diaz, but Muller is listed as scenic designer in POTS online materials. Like here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXiF0Sc9m_…

Re: “Defying Gravity: "Peter and the Starcatcher" Flies Without Strings

Thanks for the review, really glad you enjoyed the show! The part of Boy/Peter was played by Dane Van Brocklin as opposed to David, and Jared Graham is spelled with an H. Also, not sure who Daniel Muller might be but the scenic designer was Erik Diaz

Re: “Memphis Theater Wins Big at Chicago's Jeff Awards

Proud of Cecilia, indeed, but agree that Big winner is the play itself and its writer. Oh, thanks for plugging Chatterbox.
