Gearing up for the summer theatre season here in Maine, just as the 2015-206 has closed , and I thought I would share with you two recent articles that I had great fun writing. The first is a preview piece on what is sure to be a real treat this August-September – a co-production between Maine State Music Theatre and Portland Stage of Frank McCourt’s The Irish and How They Got That Way, directed by Marc Robin, sets by Anita Stewart, and starring Curt Dale Clark. Here is the link to read the Broadway World piece: https://stagescreensong.wordpress.com/we-are-all-irish/
Then I had the pleasure of reviewing the absolutely remarkable production, directed by Raymond Marc Dumont, of Andrew Lippa’s The Wild Party at Portland Players. I was blown away and delighted to be able to give it a rave!..

I also completed another interview with composer Tobin Mueller for Fanfare – he has completed his masterworks trilogy with a Chopin-Mueller album- and got to speak to composer Dan Redfield.
So it has been busy, busy! Who says living in Maine is uneventful?
