Theater And Music

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2010 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

If you live near Washington, DC, you can see my pal John Stange in Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap in early January. Seats are going so fast that I am going to miss all opportunities to see it during my very brief New Year's stint in DC. Don't make my mistake!

Also: If you live near Washington, DC, you may wish to see my friend Lucian's band Schmekel in early February. (That is some kind of magical Facebook page that does not require a login to view the information contained within). Schmekel brands itself "100% Trans Jews" so you probably already know whether you are their target audience. If you live in New York City and watch live music and are queer and/or trans and/or Jewish, you've probably heard of Schmekel via your usual sources prior to this straight cis Hindu (?) gal telling you about it.
