on the road

Join Playgoer "on location" this week at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Will try to blog, depending the dial-up and/or internet cafe situation. Haven't committed to a theatrgoing itinerary yet, but especially looking forward to catching the rare Journey's End, that once-popular British WWI drama. There's also a rival production of The Constant Wife, which might make a sobering comparison to the Roundabout travesty. (More on that, hopefully, upon my return.)

When will The Playgoer share his reactions to "Slings and Arrows," now airing on Sundance?

I happen to know that he's a long-time fan of Mark McKinney's.

I look forward to hearing how Journey's End comes off. It was the standout play in an anthology I read through long ago, and more recently I tried to persuade a friend (in another city) to consider producing it. But I've never seen it.
