Hey Theatre Fam! Jon Jon back, after seeking out some of the talented and friendly company members of We Happy Few. These frequent collaborators are presenting their latest offering, The Dog in the Manger, opening next week.
Hi Theatre Fam! Jon Jon here! I got a chance to correspond with some of the wonderful folks at Imagination Stage, who are gearing up to open E B White’s classic Charlotte’s Web. Even though I have not read the story in many, many years, it still has a fond place in my heart. There’s […]
From its roots in ancient Greek culture, the story of Electra has withstood the ravages of time. Electra, herself, stands as a bloodstained woman, something of a patron saint of revenge.
