This is your captain speaking: it’s gonna be a bumpy ride…

Over the course of the next two weeks, the website might be a little, shall we say, finicky. So will my personal site.

I’m switching web hosts. No need for more statements until the shift has been made (at which point, I’m thinking scorched-earth isn’t a bad idea…): but let’s just say, “GDGD!”

Say “I bought it on eBay”…

OK, so I don’t know how many of you heard about this, but the Royal Shakespeare Company is auctioning off some of its past costume and props…

Feeling like Prince Humperdinck

Nothing of real value to add today… kinda swamped. Mister Roberts opens Friday, so we’re in the midst of tech/dress rehearsal week; my final paper for my Seminar on British Literature is due on Sunday (a 20-pager for which I’ve written a whopping four); I still need to create materials for this weekend’s sessions of my Shakespeare for Actors class; plus, business stuff, website stuff, etc. etc. etc….

So I’ve feeling a bit like a certain character from The Princess Bride

I got nuthin’ but…

OK, so I don’t have anything of import for today.

But I did see that the Independent Shakespeare Company did read my review of their show…

Sorry, no news podcast today…

I’m a slacker, I suppose. No “This Week in Shakespeare” podcast this week. Yesterday, the plan had been to fly back to LA from Akron, Ohio via Chicago, IL, with enough time to regroup, relax, rehearse (I’m in a new play, Mister Roberts!), and record that podcast. Well, the travel gods were not with me on that. Flight delayed, schedule rerouted through Charlotte, NC, with not enough time.

But, tomorrow, I’ve got a couple of announcements, and Thursday, I’ll review the Macbeth I saw in Cleveland!

 

Greetings from Cleveland… and one last chance!

Greetings from Cleveland!

In town for Macbeth (but more on that later this week), but more importantly…

Greetings from Indianapolis!

Real quick note:

Greetings from the Popular Culture Association conference in Indianapolis. Tomorrow, I deliver my Westworld/Shakespeare paper. Today, I get to see some great papers delivered… highlights thus far: “Metaphysical Sherlock,”  “Precarity, Emotional Labor, and Sex Work in HBO’s The Deuce,” and “Black Maeve and White Dolores of HBO’s Westworld: Battered and Abused Heroines’ Journey Toward an Elusive Freedom and the Audiences that Love Them.”

There are over 3000 attendees. I’m exhausted and hungry (thus skipping the Harry Potter session)…
