The reading of SPIRIT OF THE HOUSE brought me some wonderful feed back and the delight of knowing everyone in the audience agreed it was a good start and wanted to see and hear more and also agreed it needed to be a full length play. It is now back in the gestation chamber until all the enchanted creature books get into print.
Reading the list of new theatre attractions reminded me most of what is new is old – I saw the originals of so many of these plays!
I grew particularly nostalgic about “
” which I saw at Arcadia as Otis Guernsey’s guest. I was particularly interested in ir as it had Lord Byron involved…and Lord Byron was involved with my long time favorite poet, Percy B. Shelley. In fact, I think one of the best plays I ever wrote was about their relationship. It was a musical done back in the days when I lived in Lincoln Center and Ed Cerveny was the composer. Nothing ever came of it – and I wonder what ever came of him? Longmeadow, MA
Bad weather and a still aching body from my big flip flop in the snow made me cancel attendance at new play, so no new stages to discuss just now.
