COM: Blogarithmic #116

Meggie Nidever is in need of a published poem that directly addresses Roe v Wade. It's for performance at UIL Regionals (that means she won District by the way!). If you know of one, put a note in comments, or drop me an email.

Mark Standing Eagle Baez, a friend from his Texas days, continues to produce new songs in a range of styles. He's a powwow drummer and Eagle Dancer, but he's branched out into blues territory. Give him a listen on his page at AcidPlanet here.

Daniel Morgan is getting ready to host Circus of the Spineless over at his blog Get Busy Livin' or Get Busy Bloggin'. You can find his first announcement here. So get busy submittin'!.

Saw Lilies of the Field last night. Good production by Playhouse2000 at the Cailloux Theatre. Clifton Fifer was magnificent, and his singing is in the knock-dead zone. Also especially enjoyed performances by Karl Bajoris, his best role and performance to date. Mac Anderson always hits his character on the head, Joan Bryson's delivery makes her the perfect Mother Superior. And i always enjoy performances by Ellen Bitkower and Phil Kuhlmann, even if their stage time is short-lived. Jeff Cunnigham's direction was very sensitive, much better than some things on the recent Cailloux stage. He clearly has a feel for keeping the audience engaged. Overall pretty good, but there were some over-the-top characterizations and dialects, and some serious sound issues that distracted from the play. More extensive review later at milkriverreviews.

Both Lilies of the Field at Playhouse2000 and Lone Star & Laundry and Bourbon at The Point close this weekend. All worth seeing if you haven't had a chance.

The Point announced casts for The Magician's Nephew and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas this summer. And A Streetcar Named Desire auditions are tomorrow.
