I am and have always been a fan of live performances.  I love the drama, I love the lights, I love the swell of the music and in a nutshell….I love theatre.  I remember the first time that I saw a professional show, I was with my Mother, my Aunt and my cousin and we were there to see Starlight Express. Yes, I mean the show where people were on roller skates and pretended to be trains.  I loved it, and truth be told, I still love it to this day (what can I say, I’m sentimental).

Originally (and really, up until recently) when I saw a show I would tell anyone and everyone all about it, what I liked, hated and thought, even if it meant awkwardly forcing it into a conversation.  Since this seemed to be a bad way to keep friends and colleagues I decided that I needed another outlet.  I started writing in an official capacity about theater, which you can find at   This blog is the attempt to meet somewhere in the middle of the two extremes.

But what qualifies me, you ask?  Well besides loving theater I have also worked in theaters in various areas since I was young.  I have performed, sang, danced (not my finest quality), worked crew and even did internships at the Old Globe Theatre in marketing and directing.  I know what goes into most aspects of theatre and if I don’t know about it then I want to learn about it. I appreciate all the work that goes on behind the scenes to make what we see onstage happen, from the crew, to the dramaturge to the literary manager, it takes a lot of people to make a show happen.

I will go see any theatre that is available to me.  I love musicals and straight plays, drama and comedy.  I am a big proponent of children participating in theater in any capacity and believe that theater is not just entertaining but can also be educational and open up the imaginations of children.  I like to go to lectures, theater backstage tours and to the sales when the theater needs to empty their stock to make room for more things (capes!  I love capes!).  I am a total geek and love to read, play with my gadgets and watch tv (Glee, Battlestar Galactica, Psych and Star Wars) so when those things pop up on this blog forgive me and keep on reading.

More than just talking to the vast emptiness of the internet I love to talk to people, so please feel to comment and start a discussion.  Healthy debate and disagreement is perfectly fine with me but I don’t like anything mean-spirited or deliberately hurtful, so keep it clean!

If you have seen, heard of or just want to talk about a show, performer or aspect of theater feel free to let me know!  To contact me directly email me at
