An August Beginning: Jitney at The Samuel J. Freidman Theatre

By |January 20th, 2017|

Last night, the New York theatre community welcomed the first (and ironically, the last) of August Wilson’s plays to Broadway. Jitney, one of Wilson’s 10 plays sharing a universal, yet intimate tale of African-American life throughout the 20th century, was the first chapter in this […]

Oh How I Wish We Could Keep Shuffling Along

By |June 27th, 2016|

When I heard the news that the Broadway tour-de-force, Shuffle Along, was set to close on July 24th — a full 2 months earlier than its original closing date in September — I, along with so many others, immediately shouted “Why!?” How can such a work […]

She Loves Me … Times Two

By |May 2nd, 2016|

I originally treated myself to the Roundabout Theatre’s production of She Loves Me on my birthday back in March, but a weird twist of fate (along with my greedy need to see if I can win tickets through TodayTix) gave me a second opportunity to […]

I Know What You Did Last October (Berman, Zola & Brooks)

By |November 10th, 2015|

It’s no surprise to anyone that NYC is brimming with guest lecturers and book signings to feed its massive bookworm population. And it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that someone who has met authors as varied as Ray Bradbury, Vanessa Garcia, Barbara Ehrenreich […]

Looking At Art And Seeing Red

By |November 11th, 2014|

As the six-time Tony-award winning drama Red closed at Indiana Repertory Theatre this weekend, I couldn’t help but reflect on the wonderful experience of seeing such a brilliant work grace my local stage. Broadway is full of emotional, conflict-ridden navel-gazing dramas that leave the audience feeling […]

How Fast Summertime Flies! – Art in August

By |September 5th, 2014|

I have no idea where the month of August went! To be fair, I have no idea where the first week of September went either. Ha!

Like so many trying to get the most out of summer after a particularly harsh winter, it was difficult balancing […]

For the Love of Fringe: The 2011 IndyFringe Festival

By |August 30th, 2011|

The 2011 IndyFringe festival wrapped up its seventh year this past Sunday night. And even though this was only my second year enjoying the theatre extravaganza in Indianapolis’ own mini-arts district, it felt even more inclusive and representative of the theater spirit than my first […]

Someone Asks Tiffanie Bridges: Is That Your Reel Hair?

By |June 24th, 2011|

June has been a hectic, yet fruitful month for a lot of freelancers, myself included. It turns out there is some truth to the idea a freelancer’s life runs on a cycle of feast or famine.

In addition to freelancing duties, I’ve also been a bit of a […]

Pour Yourself a Cup of Ambition – 9 to 5: The Musical

By |January 14th, 2011|

The seven inches of freshly fallen snow didn’t deter theater geeks like myself from venturing out on Wednesday for a night of theat-ah at Indianapolis’ Clowes Memorial Hall. I had the pleasure of taking in the delightfully entertaining National Tour of the revenge comedy that […]
