Fringe Femmes: "Things Being What They Are"

Fringe Femmes: “Things Being What They Are”

Fringe Femmes: quick looks at plays by women on the fringe… “Things Being What They Are” by Wendy MacLeod Okay.

But in the hands of the guys (yep, I mean XY guys) from Moving […]

FATHERS AT A GAME (MOVING ARTS): 60% - BITTERSWEET

FATHERS AT A GAME (MOVING ARTS): 60% – BITTERSWEET

Don Shirley – LA Stage Watch (Segerstrom Review) SWEET That’s just one of the situations you’ll find yourself in during Paul […]

The Car Plays

The Car Plays

I have been remiss in putting up a LemonMeter rating for The Car Plays, mostly because the show has run in bursts at different locales, Radar LA, La Jolla Playhouse, and the press has popped up like blips, rather than enmasse. That said, a shout out to Paul Stein and Steve Lozier and any of […]
