It's showtime, folks

I haven't been doing much lately. Zack has though. He is so busy all the time. He works and works and works and then instead of taking a break, he signs up for more work. I get lonely by myself. You should probably come hang out with me.

But you could also go to see the show that Zack designed. Here's a picture.


And here's some info:

THE KNOCKOUT BLOW
Written and directed by Tina Satter

Starring: JESS BARBAGALLO * ELIZA BENT * JULIA SIRNA-FREST

An infectiously strange and ecstatic musical spectacle about dislocation, heartbeats and trying to communicate.

Half Straddle stages shows that might have been inscribed in the margins of a teenage back-up singer's spiral-bound notebook or improvised in the van after ballet class – girly, enigmatic and utterly hot pink.

Music & Sound Design: CHRIS GIARMO
Lights & Design: ZACK TINKELMAN
Art Design: DEBORAH SATTER
Stage Management: WAYNE PETRO

You may recall I've written about this show before, both here and here. It's still good! Go see it. And then tell Zack to stop working so hard and to hang out with me more.

Lena if you are bored and lonely you can always come hang with us.

Come see Nomi's LIttle Mermaid on Ice March 28.29.
