Or a typo.... I believe "beiged" was intended.

Re: “Laurie Cook McIntosh Dies

It was early in our lives, sometime second to fourth grade, and Laurie, along with Randy Beardsworth and me, hung out together. The project we undertook that I most remember was a poetry magazine we founded. My memories of this are vague. I mostly remember work on it in Randy's carport. As best as I remember, the three of us took on the roles in the production of it: we wrote the poems and made the magazine--can't remember if we typed it or wrote it by hand. But clearly photocopy was not an option. We remained on friendly terms in school through senior year of high school, but nothing topped that early time together.

Made bland by proximity to beige/tan/sand/etc. Not so much besieged, but definitely surrounded.

What is this "beieged?" Is it "besieged beige?"

You must've gone to the wrong theatre. I thought it was great.

Re: “Will the Tennessee Legislature Make it Illegal to Perform Hamlet in Schools?

I saw the Imitation Firearm open for Guns N' Parks at the Empty Chamber in Norman, 1989.

Shouldn't Dave Clancy have already said something about having seen Hoax Device open for Iron Butterfly back in the day?

Re: “Will the Tennessee Legislature Make it Illegal to Perform Hamlet in Schools?

Oddly, the "Gun Free School Zones" act only covers people without a permit carrying guns to schools. If you've got a permit, you can carry the gun anywhere you damn well please.

The only way to stop a bad person with a hoax device is a good person with a hoax device.

Re: “Will the Tennessee Legislature Make it Illegal to Perform Hamlet in Schools?

To be clear, the issue may be covered under a different statute. The language here seemed to exclude other than described. So I don't know yet.

Re: “Will the Tennessee Legislature Make it Illegal to Perform Hamlet in Schools?

I can take a gun to Marquette Park but can't carry it on the sidewalk in front of Holy Rosary school on my way to the park?

Re: “Gloria Baxter on "Long Day's Journey Into Night"

Love this play, but like Chris, stuff happened and I didn't get to see it. I also moved here after Josie's Mary Tyrone. Not to top anyone's story, I DID get to see Vanessa Redgrave's Mary on Broadway along with Philip Seymour Hoffman as her son. Not necessarily because Josie is gone, but still wish I could have seen her in the role...but I DID get to see her in "Ballad of the Sad Cafe."

Re: “"Bad Jews" is Good Theater at Circuit Playhouse

Thanks for the review: we worked very hard as a team to avoid a "shrill fest" and create a roller-coaster sort of ride with variations. I, too, wondered as we worked, whether people really went on non-stop tirades such as those features in Bad Jews. We worked them as authentically as we could. On our final Thursday, an amazing group -along with one of our generous sponsors - from the local Jewish Community Center bought the entire house. What an evening! During the Q & A following the show, I finally asked our guests a question: I explained that in my background long tirades were not part of our family scene, funeral or festival. I asked whether they could relate to those moments in the play? This question was followed by kind laughter and various comments including:..."You're not Jewish, are you?" as well as "Welcome to my world, " and "You have no idea! That is my family up there!" What I loved most was a comment that said "This is what real theatre is supposed to do - it gets people to talking." All through the run I noticed audience members did not often leave the theatre right away, but hung around to talk to each other- even strangers engaged in conversation: "Who should get the Chai?" I am so grateful to Jackie Nichols for having the brilliant idea to bring this play and Laura Stracko Franks together, and offer it to the Memphis theatre community. You nailed this one, Jackie!...Mmmwha! Anita Jo Lenhart, Director of Bad Jews, Circuit Playhouse, 2015
