[poll id="12"]

Remember you can’t see the results unless you vote.

The show opens on January 10, 2013 and that’s when we’ll close the poll and unveil the final result.

During this Holiday Season let’s do our best to reach out to the less fortunate.

Jason, Tanna and the Edgemar need our help. Don’t let them down.

  1. Jason Rohrer Jason Rohrer says:

    Sorry, Colin. I was just offered the role of Lizzie in this production – apparently someone was fired – and will be unable to review it.

  2. Colin Mitchell Colin Mitchell says:

    Yes, but Peter Snodgrass will be available.

      I was just informed, unceremoniously, by Edgemar publicist, Philip Sokoloff, that in regards to “that poll” of ours, that – and I quote – “It’s a moot point, because neither Mr. Rohrer nor Stage and Cinema are being invited to review “The Rainmaker” at Edgemar Center.”

      My response: “It’s never moot when the entertainment value of the venture is so high.”

      So keep on voting, LemonHeads, and let’s drown ‘em in an ocean of irony of their own making!

  3. Bill B. says:

    I say we take up a collection to purchase tickets for Mr. Rohrer plus one to go review it anyway for S&C. Fuck any theater or producer who thinks they have the right to control who reviews their work and who does not. Is this China? This isn’t China.

    • Colin Mitchell Colin Mitchell says:

      Ooooh, I like that idea, Mr. B. Maybe a little Kickstarter campaign to raise the $50 or whatever for Jason +1? It’s true, really anyone can review if they wish even if they aren’t officially “invited” as a critic. The only difference is that the tickets aren’t free.

      Though I do know Jason is campaigning against all this for his own sanity, but this isn’t about Jason anymore (actually it never was)! It’s about whether or not we are China!

  4. Jason Rohrer Jason Rohrer says:

    Mr B, I adore the sentiment but abhor the thought. Someone ought to make a sacrifice for freedom et cetera. In this case, it should not be me. Regardless of the wishes of the well-meaning participants in this poll, I cannot conceive of the circumstance that would entice me back to that shithole. What is it they say – twice burned, fuck me?

    And anyway, I honor my word when possible. I said after Ghosts that I would decline any opportunity to reinvestigate that building. I meant it. I know plenty of stupid women, and have no need to seek them out in Santa Monica.

    Unless there’s some serious money in it.
