What to see this weekend

Hi everyone!

So it's been a few weeks since my last post, tsk tsk tsk. But can you blame me? It's been a whirlwind of things going on! I had a really quick and dirty run of a show at the Factory, helped launch our Script-in-hand-Staging of Dearly Beloved, have been reading and reviewing our many play submissions for play. Discovery, scheduling interviews for potential directors, and last but not least getting our super-duper Kickstarter campaign up and running. It's been tough to make time to sit down and get thoughts to page. I have managed to squeeze in a little bit of theatre going, though and here are some things I'm seeing this weekend (or would like to see this weekend) so I encourage you to do the same!

Blood Rose Rising: Episode 3
- Performs tonight only at 9pm - Zero Church Street, Cambridge, MA (First Parish Church, lower level), I saw episode 2 last week and was really wowed by the concept. It's a workshop performace intended to gain some investors for a fully realized production, but I had more fun watching this show than I have in a while. Check it out, it's a really neat idea and definitely gave me some food for thought about the future of the audience experience.

Book of Grace - Company One - Through 5/7/11 at the BCA Plaza Theatre. I haven't seen this one, but the critics love it, and I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the C1 clan. Tix at www.bostontheatrescene.com

True West - RoughWeek - An all female cast takes on Shepard's classic brother dramedy in their apartment, with wine to boot. You couldn't keep me away with a sharp stick. Sataurday and Sunday at 8pm

Hotel Cassiopeia - Fort Point Theatre Channel - The earnest and off-the-beaten-path company takes on the surreal and whimsical Charles Mee. A natural fit. I'll be ushering next weekend (I think...) but it's opening weekend so head on down to Fort Point and check out their new space and what promises to be an interesting night of theatre.

{Working Title} Film Festival - presented by local spoken-word group ARTiculation (a group originally cultivated by Company One) and sponsored by The Video Underground. A night of short films by young and local film makers with a $5.00 cover. Check it out TONIGHT ONLY at
The Yes. Oui. Si gallery space on 19 Vancouver St Boston, MA.

Hopefully I can catch up on my blogging in the next couple of weeks with some more substantial postings, but for now GO SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL THEATRES. And if you haven't already, throw a few dollars our way to help us reach our Dearly Beloved production budget of $1500 through Kickstarter.

Happy Friday,
