Wednesday Roundup

-The protests from activists for the seeing- and hearing-impaired seem to have paid off slightly. Producers announce that at least the understudy for Abigail Breslin in the upcoming Miracle Worker will indeed be legally blind.

-The Voice previews German auteur Heiner Goebbels's new "no-man show" inspired by the work of 19th century Austrian novelist Adalbert Stifter. "Stifters Dinge plays out its 70 minutes of music, light, water, and prerecorded voices without a single live performer." Sounds like an easy ticket!

-Want to know how to keep a small Off B'way nonprofit in business thirty years while still producing big impressive Shakespeare productions? Read about the most tenacious man in Show No-Biz: Theatre for a New Audience's Jeffrey Horowitz.

-Gatz Lives! Elevator Repair Service's epic staging of the complete Great Gatsby still can't come to New York, but it will play Cambridge, MA at A.R.T. in January. I reviewed the 2007 Philly presentation here.
