Love and Libraries in the Time of Covid

We’re living in a very different world since I last wrote. March 11th I was on my way to class, processing a flurried day in the office. It was becoming apparent something had changed overnight. The week before, Covid-19 had been a growing concern, but nothing to urgently handle. The following week, the world wasContinue reading “Love and Libraries in the Time of Covid”

Welcome to the Library Zone

Hi all. It’s been a hot minute since I updated anything on here. If you’re stopping by, you’ll notice this site looks a little different. Okay, it looks a lot different. For one thing, there’s a lot of books pictured on the home page. The menu options are different. Large chunks of it are underContinue reading “Welcome to the Library Zone”

Bi Demi Me: Or, an Exploration in Sexual Identity

Hi there. It’s me. The blogger. For those of you who might be new here, here are some things to know about me: I’m a Hufflepuff. I’m starting a new job. I have watched Good Omens about five times in the last three months and I’m not about to stop rewatching it so help meContinue reading “Bi Demi Me: Or, an Exploration in Sexual Identity”

Another Midnight: A Reimagining of “Midnight In Paris”

I have a complicated relationship with the film Midnight in Paris. It was one of my favorite films in college, mainly because I loved that it featured 1920s Paris, time travel, and a plethora of my favorite actors. However, my feelings towards it have become more complicated as I’ve grown to understand more about WoodyContinue reading “Another Midnight: A Reimagining of “Midnight In Paris””

A Way Forward

For those of you wondering: is this going to be a personal blog now? Here’s the answer: No, note entirely. But also yes. Yes and. In order to write about writing, theater, and the arts in general, I need to show where I’ve come from. The past couple years of my life have drastically changed meContinue reading “A Way Forward”

I Won’t Go Down With This Ship: Or, What Happens Next

In a transition between my last bomb-drop of a post and whatever is to come, I’ve penned this letter to myself as a retrospective look back and recognize how far I’ve come. There will be more about theater and writing soon, but for now, this is what I have for you.  Dear 2018 me, Hi.Continue reading “I Won’t Go Down With This Ship: Or, What Happens Next”

Screaming into the Void

I wrote this post last March but hadn’t gotten around to typing up and posting it until now. Why? Excuses mainly (busy, not ready, other self-sabotage to share it I suppose). While I enjoy reviewing, I really want to expand this blog to talk about playwriting and theater-making in a larger way, especially about myContinue reading “Screaming into the Void”

Time for a Change

Hello friend, blog readers, and those of you stumbling across this expecting to find something about the musical Hamilton: You might have noticed there’s been a steady decline in my reviewing over the last couple of years. As I focus more on my own writing and work more nights and evenings in my “day job,”Continue reading “Time for a Change”

An (Incomplete) List of Themes and Issues in Frankenstein

I am obsessed with Frankenstein. This is not new. I first read the book in middle school and, though I didn’t understand a lot of it, I fell deep into the rabbit hole of loving Victor Frankenstein’s tragic story and the Creature’s isolation and outsider view. I watched the Universal film from 1931 and itsContinue reading “An (Incomplete) List of Themes and Issues in Frankenstein”

A Little Respite, A Little Rest

Hey all. It’s your friendly neighborhood playwright/blogger here. You might have noticed a slight lull in reviewing. It’s not that I haven’t seen shows – I saw Hamlet at Park Square at the beginning of October, The Privateer at Park Square a couple of weeks ago, and In the Next Room at the Rarig Center just thisContinue reading “A Little Respite, A Little Rest”
