Kudos for Studio Theatre

My companions to go see Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead pushed our tickets out to the 22nd so I can’t give you my opinion yet, but I can give you someone else’s. Today’s Wall Street Journal, which rarely lowers itself to discuss shows outside NYC, has a glowing review of Studio‘s production of Stoppard’s play.

My most recent trip was to the Studio Theatre, which is putting on “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” as its contribution to “Shakespeare in Washington,” the city-wide, season-long celebration of the Bard currently under way in the nation’s capital. I’ve been hearing good things about the Studio Theatre for the past couple of years, and this revival confirmed them all. It’s the best “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern” I’ve ever seen on stage.

The article goes on to praise actors Raymond Bokhour and Liam Craig as well as Kirk Jackson and Daniel Conway, the director and designer. Full text here [paid sub may be required]

Congrats to all involved on the national attention. I’m really looking forward to the show.

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.
