COM: Blogarithmic #141

A Streetcar Named Desire opens tonight at The Point Theatre. Show time is 8:30 p.m. Tickets $10.

I have a habit of randomly reviewing things now and then (more then than lately), but am not going to review something i'm in, except to say that i wish i could review this one. The leads are just phenomenal. Leaman Valentine is mesmerizing in several scenes, and Sarah Tacey, Ann Reynolds, and Jerry Mertz are dazzling across the board. My "wife" Louise Leahy is a genuine hoot all the way through, and Garrett Whitten will be an instant heartthrob. I think no one will be disappointed by this one. And i have to say it's been a great pleasure working with the director, John Ruth, an old friend, and an excellent supporting cast and technical crew.

Meanwhile, Leaman and beau Cassie Baker have settled on moving to Austin at the end of the month and so we lose his services as a lead in Lend Me A Tenor. Since we start rehearsals in just a few days we are trying to make a choice from a passel of talented others we'd like to have step into the role. I'll post a full cast list soon.

From Soccer America

Kelsey Carpenter was a one-woman show for No. 14 Texas, scoring on blasts from 20 and 25 yards to break a 2-2 tie and give the Longhorns a 4-2 win at LSU before 1,669 fans in Baton Rouge. Carpenter finished with three goals and an assist on Carrie Schmit's goal.

No. 11 Rice crushed Texas Southern, 12-0, but it could have been much worse. The Owls outshot Texas Southern, 66-0. Clory Martin led Rice with three goals and two assists. Erin Scott and Traci Fraser each had two goals. Shelley Wong had three assists, all in the first 18 minutes.
