I read the news today – oh boy…

I talked about Will following up all of my “what didn’t work” analysis about Orestes with a discussion about the parts of the show that were successful. His soft boycott of blogging means he never got to what I’ve been calling the Little Mary Sunshine post, so I’m going to let the nominating committee for Austin Circle of Theatres B. Iden Payne Award committee say it for him:

We were nominated for:

OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION OF A DRAMA
ORESTES

So roughly I’d say that’s how that went…

  • Terrific photos, boss. A note for your next to-do list: as a reviewer I salivate over such images. They multiply the impact of my mere thousand words. Congratulations to all! (Told you, told you that it was better than any B-). Michael
