I recently became a clown, which admittedly sounds very odd and maybe a bit triggering for some people who have a clown phobia. Most people, unsurprisingly I suppose, haven't even the slightest clue what in fact that means.

Do you juggle?

Do you put on that white makeup?...

Hi Friends,

I find that I am so inspired by the artists right in my backyard that I wanted to create a space to interview them, and soak in their insurmountable wisdom. So, once a month, I will be interviewing artists that I find to be truly inspiring; artists that you...

September is the most wonderful time of the year if you are a theater artist in Philadelphia. We are well into the start of Fringe, where there are 5 – 25 daily theatrical happenings all over the city. It is a theatre-goer’s paradise; however, like any major celebratio...

For the last 3 weeks, I have been riding ye ol' Megabus, to get up to NYC for the variety of open calls that have been happening (and are STILL happening FYI).
