Quick Thoughts on “Mansion,” “3$Bill,” and Jay’s Article

I spent my writing time this morning conversing with computer people about my home computer, unfortunately, so this is another “Please don’t give up on me!” post, pounded out on a borrowed computer during a tiny window of opportunity.  Three quick items:


On Friday, I went to see “Murder and Madness in the Mansion.”  It was presented by Victorian Theatre by Candlelight at the President Benjamin Harrison Home as a fundraiser for the PBHH. 

It was a lot of fun!  Three short adaptations of stories by Poe, Doyle and Dunsany, presented in three different theatre styles, in three different beautiful and historically authentic rooms, by three different casts to three different, rotating audiences.  My audience had only around 18-19 people in it and there was room for only 1 or 2 more.  It is not hype to say that this event sells out quickly.  I will write about it in more detail eventually, but if this event interests you, you should make a reservation right away.

Go here and scroll down a little bit for more information.  Call 317-631-1888 to make a reservation.  “Murder and Madness in the Mansion” runs through Sunday, May 2, 2010.


Late on Friday night, on a whim, I scooted in to ComedySportz to see “Pre-Existing Conditions” – the seventh sketch comedy revue by Three Dollar Bill Comedy Company.  I won’t have time to write a detailed post about it (and also I missed the beginning of the show, so it wouldn’t be fair to write a more formal review of it) but I will say that I howled with laughter and was glad I stayed up late.  Those five guys (six, including the announcer) and Claire Wilcher are outrageous.

And finally, I loved the article by Jay Harvey in the Indianapolis Star recently about how local actors and theatres approach the audition process.   Here is a direct link to the article on IndyStar.com:



Whew!  I wrote, edited, embedded links into, and posted this post in 20 minutes!  Yikes! 

‘See you at the theatres…
