Fun with White Privilege, as we get ready to start rehearsals Monday for #CSRaisin. That would be rep cast productions of Norris’ CLYBOURNE PARK and Kwei-Armah’s brand new BENEATHA’S PLACE, both alternative responses in conversation with Hansberrry’s gorgeous original classic, RAISIN IN THE SUN. So there.

"Poe Pourri" (part 1 of 3) — Beetlejuice takes on a certain prophetic and portentous fowl. And a darkly mordant poet, mourning his lost Lenore. You get the picture.

Getting ready for Crime and Punishment? Or a little crime without punishment, Edward Gorey-style?

brocreate: Ralf and I have that in common.

Via www.harkavagrant.com comes this delightful bit of levity, in part at the expense of those wonderful Victorians, and in part in sympathy for them I suppose. As Earnest and its Wilde wit recedes into the distance, with only a few performances remaining, we look back fondly. And share this lighthearted jest.

Young people of a certain age might remember the images of Verne and Méliès better in the music video for “Tonight, Tonight” by the Smashing Pumpkins, c. 1997. Heavily influenced, you could say. -DL

Oh, and for those deeply invested, or just curious, you can find an interesting set of observations on the connections and lineage amongst these various strands at this website right here, just by clicking through. Cartoons, animation, art, and more.
