LA Stage Times Highlights Footlights-Bitter Lemons Merger

First of all, a major thank you to LA Stage Insider columnist Julio Martinez and LA Stage Times for even noticing our minor rumblings.

Yes it’s true, LemonHeads, take a look at this LA Stage Insider article published today, in which our recent Footlights-Bitter Lemons’ merger is highlighted, lookin’ all newsworthy and shit.

And yes, that is indeed my ugly mug up there on the article looking all editorial and shit and attempting to say things that sound smart.

Kinda like what I try to do here everyday.

Though Julio did refer to me and/or us as a “gadfly” and initially I wasn’t sure how to feel about that.  I looked it up on Wikipedia (hate Wikepedia and everything it stands for!):

“A gadfly is a person who upsets the status quo by posing upsetting or novel questions, or just being an irritant.”


Well I did say this in the article so…

“Editorially, Bitter Lemons will still be sticking our thumbs in people’s eyes and kicking them in the butt. We didn’t grow our site by being shy, so we are going to continue doing what we are doing, bringing theater together whether it likes it or not.”

Inspired by our deeply embedded sense of fair play we’ve decided to post Julio’s photo here at the Lemon.

Handsome devil.

Carry on! Nothing more to see here! Thank you, Julio!
