Some Reading

A round-up of stories and posts that caught my eye.

-Latest Broadway grosses are in. Variety says they're down, but I'm impressed, going into February, no one is under 50% capacity!

-SF critic Chloe Veltman asks, What makes journalists think that they can write well for the stage? Case in point: George Packer's "Betrayed."

-Environmental, site-specific theatre finally comes to the 4 train!

-Did you know there was a nice little theatre company in Horse Cave, Kentucky? Well with this economy, perhaps not much longer.

-And, finally, can you imagine a more toxic mixture than Andrew Lloyd Webber and the impeached Illinois gov? I give you, Second City's "Rod Blagojevich Superstar!"
