The park was made by Magnatron (the famous company, who specialized in tourist traps and slicked-up "Spots To Be"). The pamphlet didn't list the "worlds," but did lay out some rules, detailing how to get from place to place, and useful tools. It seems you needed tokens to access each VR tent, and some of them, you'd need to find the door before you went! It said the place was laced with clues, and through the worlds you'd seek, for keys to open other worlds (as well as things unique). T

The houses down here were small, made from wood and brick, and I saw a gray stone bridge over a crick, bordered with antique lampp

The Music Cure / Augustus Does His Bit

The Music Cure / Augustus Does His Bit

Coming up this weekend, I'm in a double-feature of short comedies by George Bernard Shaw: The Music Cure, and Augustus Does His Bit. They're both hilarious plays, and I play the lead role in both of them... and my dad plays a supporting role in one of them. My performances are: Saturday, December 2nd, at 7:00 PM Sunday, December 3rd, at 4:00 PM The total runtime for the show (both plays plus one short intermission between them) is about an hour and a half, it's free, and you'll laugh your asses off. Come see it, at YSP, 1806 West Lawn Ave., Madison, WI.

Great Catherine

Great Catherine

If you watch Extra History, you know they recently did a miniseries about Catherine the Great (and if you don't watch Extra History, you should). And next weekend (and the weekend after that), I am playing Grigori Potemkin (or, as he is known in the play, "Patiomkin") in Bernard Shaw's play about Catherine the Great, aptly titled Great Catherine. It's a short (just over an hour long, I think) but utterly hilarious play, and you should come see it! My performances are: Friday, May 19th, at 6:00 PM, and Sunday, May 28th, at 2:00 PM.

Glimpse, Six, and Christmas Carol

Glimpse, Six, and Christmas Carol

Welp, opening weekend had its hiccups, including a sudden snowstorm on the premiere date of my cast. You can still see me, however, in A Glimpse of Reality and The Six of Calais, this coming Saturday, December 10th, at 7:00 PM. First, though, you can see me as Ebenezer Scrooge in YSP's Dickens Dramatic Reading Society's staged readthrough of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, this coming Friday, December 9th, at 6:00 PM. It's almost as good as the Muppet version! (yes, ~ShakespeareFreak (https://www.deviantart.com/shakespearefreak) pestered me into being in A Christmas Carol this year)
