You know, as noble as I believe it is to make fun of this idiot, I also can't help the feeling that we are giving him what he wants. He is probably one of the most famous b-listers in the political world. Isn't it time we just stop feeding the beast?
Oops... I thought Friday Night Freakshow was the link to the Stacey Campfield musical. I mean, the teaser/headline seemed logical...
Come out and see this show!

Oops. Sorry, someone helpfully emailed me the link. And yes, I'm in town then and am hoping to drop in.

Surely there is a bit part for the pride of TN-HR 95, the Rat, in this production!!
I met Dorothy in 1982 when we were cast as mother and daughter in the Circuit Playhouse production of The Women. She had a scene with the child playing my daughter just before I entered. I would stand off stage listening to that scene. So good. She was a wonderful actress. We became friends during that play. I left Memphis in 1984 but remember her performance in Cabaret at POTS opposite Alan Mullikin. After returning to Memphis in 2000, we renewed our friendship. I saw her in Marriage to an Older Woman for which she a regional competition best actress award. Mornings at Seven, Killing Louise and she played my mother again in New Moon Theatre's production of Footfalls. And we saw many productions together. Dear friend, always. I will miss her very much.
Dorothy and I first worked together when were in the same play, in the same room but at different times: Plaza Suite in 1972 or thereabouts. She immediately became my friend, as she did with everyone she ever worked with. She appeared in the first play I directed on the Main Stage (now the Lohrey Stage) at Theatre Memphis--The Heiress in 1986, and in several more recent others, such as GCT's Cemetery Club and TM's Morning's at Seven . I never had to give her the same note twice. After Steve and I moved, we continued to stay in occasional touch. I missed her then and I miss her now.
Dorothy was a lovely, lovely lady with an impish wit and grace to spare! Always a pleasure on stage, and always a treasure off.
Fine actress and even finer human being.
Dorothy was the dearest person and the most generous of actresses on stage and off. I viewed Dot as a mentor and had the good fortune of sharing the stage with her several times over the years; like countless others, I basked in her warmth, love, and support. A deeply, profoundly beautiful woman of boundless energy, she lived life to the fullest and probably never made an enemy. I will miss her terribly and will always, always love her.
I saw "Killing Louise." It was amazing. RIP...
New plays = new vitality.
Lucky to have seen this in NYC. It was my favorite piece by Silver, but the second act was much weaker than the first.
Mayfield, maybe it IS a two and a half hour play. But it needs more meat, less garnish.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting the public know that it's two and half hours and should probably only be 90 minutes. (Did I understand correctly?) I do applaud this new work effort, though.
Timeliness aside, it's not exciting, new or adventurous. But those aren't qualities everybody looks for. If it sounds boring, it's because it is boring. In the absolute best way possible.
