twiglefix: It's all part of the same show, baby...

 Ok, I have to ask this... If only because it's a somewhat amusing question. This is for all you techies out there:

Have you ever gone to the theatre with a friend and sat there discussing how the design team made a certain effect? Or what kinds of resources the theatre has (if it's all new equipment or not...)? 

I am sad to say that when I went to see Waiting For Godot at the Young Center for the Performing Arts, we had to actually be hushed by the usher, in our enthusiam to understand all the tech aspects. Lucky for us, the usher just laughed it off.

And that is my sad little story. But so AWESOME!

jsmusic: Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) 1/2 Price TODAY ONLY in Chicago

We have two shows today, our last day, and you can get in to either of them for half off just by saying that I sent you. All you have to do is show up and say, "J sent me." (Ticket's are usually $25, but you'll get in for $12.50!)

Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) is a scandalous story about deceit, decadence, and sexual warfare blending high style with a dancelike dreamscape of secrets and lies. Currently playing at Actor's Workshop Theatre at 1044 W. Bryn Mawr in Chicago (about a block east of the Bryn Mawr Red Line stop and a block west of Lake Shore Drive).

Shows today are at 3pm and 7pm.

Go to http://actorsworkshop.org/ for more info on the show and the company.

I figured I'd introduce myself since I just joined.

My name is Katharine, I'm a Theatre Major at Concordia University in Montreal - studying Stage Management and Playwrighting.

I come from a theatre family, both of my parents were trained professionally as stage managers, my father has been a production manager, and my parents are both general managers of theatre companies here in Montreal, now.

I'm working on a play right now that is a sci fi kinda piece, about time travel and theoretical physics. Everyone in the department thought I was strange to be reading physics.

I'm stage managing two amateur shows now (one with the theatre department, one for the Montreal Fringe festival), and ASMing a professional show.

I'm obsessed with the Farm Show.

So... that's me... hi!

So i realize i haven't touched this journal for a while.

I'm currently doing a course design on dramaturgy for a directed study right now....does any member of this community have any helpful suggestions? I just finished a paper on 'how to read a play' using a book by David Ball and Aristotle's Poetics, now i'm onto my chapter on translations.

simpleuglytruth: Passion and Ponies

I just saw a very impressive performance of "Equus" by the Vancouver Playhouse. It was done in the round to increase the eyes watching Alan and it was all very inspiring. The show runs till April 24th if anyone is interested.

simpleuglytruth: ambiguity schmambiguity

hey friends,

discussing sharon pollock today in my cdn drama class (one of my most favorite cdn playwrights) and i was surprised at the very visible divide between fans and haters of hers. She wrote a play called "blood relations" about lizzie borden and creates some interesting ambiguities....what do you think about ambiguitiy? helping the play spark discussion or simple indecisiveness from the playwright?

I would tend to say the former because one of the reasons shakespeare is still so popular is because many of his themes are ambiguious and that creates the frantic academic who tries soooo very hard to figure it out....they eat this stuff up.
