TheatresScene: Irene Edition

Hello, Friends!

Has this been a week or what?  First an earthquake and now, a hurricane named Irene.  Considering the loss of life, property and the potential for so much worse, it seems silly and self-serving to blog about theatre.  And so, in between power outages, howling winds and pounding rain, let me offer these few thoughts before I sign off for the evening.

  • Broadway and New York did the right thing in closing down for the weekend.  It turned out to be far less a crushing blow than originally predicted, but it could have been a devastating catastrophe has proper precautions not been taken.
  • I am so thankful for friends and family, near and far, for their support, offers of shelter, and constant contact.  I am one lucky guy.
  • And thank you to everyone on the East Coast whose job it is to look out for our safety, even as they risk their lives to keep us alive.  That selflessness is inspiring.

And finally, I hope that all of you who read this blog and were in Irene's way come out of this healthy, with minimal loss to yourself and all of your loved ones.

Here's looking forward to a week of nothing but drama - ON STAGE ONLY!
