Everyone is getting a chance to put their blogs on Blogging Fringe this year, and we're not taking any credit for it. In fact, it's "blog and blog alike".

Read the announcement about how this year's Blogging Fringe will be run

This year's Blogging Fringe will finally be the year it gets done the right way... this was never supposed to be a separate site for me to dump energy into, but a place for folks with blogs to share their thoughts with the community.

Muder We Wrote at Rollins College

Where does one begin? I often find that when writing these theatre reviews, it’s a good idea to gather my thoughts, think about what I want to say and in what order; I don’t have time for that, I’m going back to see the last showing in an hour!

I first learned about this production through a friend who helped to workshop the format for this improvised 90-minute board-game inspired murder mystery… she and several other students, under the direction of David Charles, PhD. - Assistant Professor of Theatre and Dance at Rollins College. The whole play is improvised, so there are bound to be some times during such a long show where the scenes may be stronger or weaker - to counteract that, “Dr. David” and his class developed dozens of devices to help them create a sustainable story throughout the length of the show.

We begin at the stately home of a Mr. Phil Reynolds, a successful lawyer with a deceased rich wife. His business partner Toni and spouse Gene the artist will be guests at tonights party, along with his child Bobby and sibling Toni, servant Pat, and lifelong friend Dr. Chris. An unexpected guest arrives, and, inevitably, there is a murder! Some classic (yet improvised) scenes are played on the stage of the Annie Russell Theatre, which has been masterfully converted to the perfect setting for these 8 unlikely murderers or murderesses to play out their little drama. You’ll laugh, you’ll scratch your head, and above all you’ll have fun.

I’ve got so much more to tell, but no time to tell it… we continue our recap when I return from the last showing of Murder We Wrote tonight!

A letter to the editors of the Orlando Sentinel

Orlando Sentinel - Talk to us. Please. - by Elizabeth Maupin

Arts journalism is being cut back at newspapers all over the country, including the Sentinel, because somebody higher up the chain of command thinks it's not important.

Now you know and I know that that's not the case. If arts journalism were to go away, the arts would have a hard time getting their message out.

Juried vs. Non-Juried

There's a conversation about to get started on Beth Marshall's MySpace about juried vs. non-juried festivals. She quotes and article from the Edmonton (Alberta, Canada) newspaper. Here's a bit of it:

In Edinburgh, venuemanagers choose their plays. Professional work, which deserves a wider audience,debuts at the festival.

Hate Mail: Jester Theatre Company

As I write this, Muapin is out of town... ha ha! the whole town to myself!!!

I must say that I've never had a face-to-face conversation with anyone involved with Hate Mail... What does this mean? Well, I think it means an un-biased attitude. OK, I have had a little interaction with the Technical Director, but I'm not sure that counts for a review.

I think the 'gimmick' and also one of the least important parts about this play is that every single line that is spoken is in fact part of a letter or a note... I didn't know this going in, and it didn't affect my perception one bit.

Keepin’ the FRINGE CRUSH love alive…

Resident curmudgeon Linwood Sassy posted some link bait for me... I'll bite!

Dammit! I never got the friggen chance to reveal MY "Cringe Crush" at this year's fest. (Some of us are Entertainment LEGENDS and had SOLD OUT shows to do, ya bastards!)

I loved Poofy du Vey. A woman in a clown nose turns me ON!

Oh...and thanks a bunch to you folks that crushed ME.

Stupid Theatre Bloggers

When your work appears on the internet and you suggest that the only info you could find was on Maupin's blog, you'd better be ready for some bloggers to find you and slam your shit. Rick Pender from the all-knowing, singing, dancing, elephant-taming CityBeat A&E Blog seems to think that if you can't find information about Patron's Pick on the official website, then it must not be true.

Seriously man, the first comment gives you THREE LINKS to follow! You couldn't find those?
