I am writing what may be my penultimate offering for the blog. I hope to scribble something else before February 1st. I am currently having my second bout with the flu and hoping that it is the 24-hour version.
I spent my weekend attending three diverse musical events: harp soloist, musical revue, and a symphony with a bassoon soloist. It is amazing the amount of entertainment available in this area. The musical revue consisted of tunes from Broadway shows and is a good example of how, with an overall theme, to bring disparate material together.
Interesting article in the Washington Post about theaters discovering that they can make money on “Bio” plays due to the lower overhead costs associated with one-person shows. This seems to be a perfect time for cabaret artists to submit their (completed and tested) revues to artistic directors in the area. H Street Playhouse has a cabaret offering coming up as does the Atlas. Does anyone know how to get in touch with retirement homes? That’s another venue.
ALSO: I will be performing with the McLean Symphony on Saturday, February 9, 2008 at 7:30 at the Alden Theatre in McLean, VA
February 23rd I will be performing at INDIGO
