Believe it or not, there’s some culture going on tonight—-that is, if you can get to it. If not? Put on a show! Totally simple: 1) Finish that one-act you’ve been working on (y’know, the one about the one-armed tightrope-walker); 2) cast your kids/roommates/visiting relatives in the bit parts; 3) obviously take the lead yourself; 4) and, um, I’ll take care of the sets and refreshments! Blocking begins at 3!
