"World Premiere Reading!"

From an email from California Shakespeare Festival...

World Premiere of the Second Play Created through Cal Shakes' New Works/New Communities Program.

Join us this Saturday, February 24, at 3pm at ACT's Hastings Studio in San Francisco for a world-premiere reading of King of Shadows, a new play by acclaimed playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Remember when "Premieres" had red carpets, rotating searchlights, and full press junket?

Well now apparently it can mean 4 music stands, some Evian bottles, and actors in sneakers.

Wow. That is some creative spam. I love when it gets all poetic.

Also, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa writes so many plays!

Wow. That's just the living end, isn't it? A world premiere reading? Aren't almost all readings essentially world premieres? Isn't he that the freaking point?

Just what we need, another not so good comic book from Robert.

Hopefully it never gets past the world premiere.

Thrilling! You can almost hear the energized snap of the actors turning their pages.
