Sit. Stay. Read. Plumdog is Plum Fun

In 2012, Emma Chichester Clark began chronicling the life of her dog in the Plumdog Blog, an illustrated, often cheeky diary in the voice of Plum, her black “…whoosell, a whippet mixed with Jack Russell and poodle.” Plumdog, Clark’s 2015 book, captures all the fun of the blog and is a delight for dog lovers with its engaging illustrations and text that describes a year in the life of London’s busiest, funniest and most world-wise dog.

The Return of The Bowman Body

On Saturday morning, August 8th, to be exact, there was already a line forming outside the Ashland Theatre at 9:00 a.m. Dedicated fans, many in costumes or t-shirts of their favorite character, greeted each other by calling out lines and laughing hysterically at the responses. Most of the audience is made up from local people, but some travelled from Pennsylvania and Maryland to be here.

Was this a revival of a favorite film series? Die-hard Star Wars fans perhaps, queuing up to see a sneak preview of the next upcoming blockbuster?

Psycho Beach Party: Bikini Babes, Surfer Hunks and Gidget Goes Nuts!

It has long been my opinion that Charles Busch is one of the freshest voices in American Theatre. He took the anarchy of Charles Ludlum’s Theatre Of The Ridiculous and stretched the boundaries a little further, using drag as an opportunity to create roles of female empowerment while throwing out great one liners with the dexterity of all of the Marx Brothers.

Quill Theatre’s Production of Hamlet

Over the last 500 years or so there have been many different interpretations of Shakespeare, with settings in different historical times to add a new dimension to the work and to demonstrate his eternal timelessness of his writing. The last few years we’ve seen works set against a Hollywood movie studio, a 1920’s style speakeasy, and a few other interesting choices alongside the more traditional productions.
