Re: “Disgraced Sets A Course for Conflict

Shaleen's character really has one of the most interesting and disturbing journeys, I think.

The other character, Abe, nephew to Amir, is played by Shaleen Cholera. His is a most interesting journey.

Re: “Intermission Impossible's 2015 Ostrander Predictions — And WHO GOT ROBBED?

I wish I had been able to see more theater this year. Your thoughts are appreciated. I do think that, as objective as I can possibly be, Sarah Brown was amazing in Vanya. The fact that Tamara Scott's work in both rep shows was entirely ignored really bothers me.
I also think it was a great year for kids, and a category for them would have been nice.
They will never be able to please everyone. It is the nature of the beast and I get that. This is all hindsight that is fun for those of us that have no responsibility. I could never be a judge. Can't wait to see everyone, knock back a few, and enjoy the show.

Re: “Ostrander Award Nominations: Community Division, 2012

Biggest head scratcher to me is Courtney Oliver not being nominated for choreography in Spring Awakening. It was original and inspired. It was all about teenage angst. I was mesmerized.

Re: “Ostrander Award Nominations: College & University, 2012

Congrats to all the nominees and I know the judges work very hard - I just don't understand not giving anyone an award for lead actor in a musical. Nobody is saying they have to be perfect, but I think it is a bit of a slap in the face to the lead actors in musicals to say that nobody deserved it. I don't understand why they can't nominate the best of the lot and pick one. They don't NOT have a winner in any other awards for actors ceremony that I know of, do they? But what do I know...

Re: “Playhouse on the Square announces its 2012-13 Season

I am looking forward to the challenge of Angels. I just reread it and I can see that if you focus on the AIDS epidemic at it's peak, it would appear to be dated. BUt I also think that the relationships are really wonderful and the final speech of Prior's in which he states,"...we are not going away... we will be citizens. The time has come." I found incredibly timely. It pulled me right out of the 80s and into the continued struggle for marriage equality and equal rights.
