Gorge at the trough of LaBute

Earlier this week I waxed poetic about Fat Pig and how much I enjoyed it. If you’re considering listening to my opinion… well, you’d be the first.

But on the off chance that you take my advice, this weekend would be a good time to do it. This weekend if you go see the 2pm matinee of Fat Pig, you can hang around after the show and participate in a discussion with the playwright himself, Neil LaBute. It’s mentioned here in the pitch for “A Day in Labuteville,” a package deal that gets you in to all three of the LaBute performances, but I suspect that attendees of the 2:00pm matinee of Fat Pig will be welcome to stay for the discussion as well.

If you’re not interested in asking him about the films he wrote, In the Company of Men, Your Friends and Neighbors and The Shape of Things, or the ones he directed, Possession and Nurse Betty, you could always ask him, “Is Nick Cage as weird to work with as people say?”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
