Well, we just wrapped the Charlottesville shows - and each one was Sold Out.
Dee Dee and I and a friend spent Sunday morning cleaning out the theatre, reception room, and rooftop patio at Live Art where last night we hosted a very special night -- made even lovelier by Kathy Doby and all her wonderful catering vision. If you missed it, you missed it.

Now, let's take a look a what The Traverse Theatre has on in August in Edinburgh. Why focus on one theatre. Well, the Traverse Theatre, a permanent Edinburgh theatre, has proven over the years to be the best collection of Theatre. See, there are many categories of performance at the Fringe: Theatre, Comedy, Physical Theatre, Musical, Solo, Verbatim, etc. And for really good theatre, a great place to start is The Traverse Theatre:
Another Show by Daniel Kitson? I know, you know, but he's just a lovely story teller/performer/comedian, so maybe I have a little crush, but I bet the show will be worth putting on your list.
Here's one from Lyric in London:
The end of summer. Two friends about to go their separate ways. But they will always share that one moment. A moment changed them forever.
The world premier of a dark new coming of age play by acclaimed playwright Simon Stephens (Pornography, Sea Wall, Punk Rock); Lyric Hammersmith Artistic Director Sean Holmes (the Olivier award winning Blasted, Saved, Ghost Stories) and performed by the Lyric Young Company.
Wellllll..... there's 5 more to see at the Festival. But the best thing to do is go to the site, go grab a Fringe Guide, page through and take a chance on something that to you looks good.
Getting ready, getting excited,
