Trav on NYTheatrecast

Posted in Indie Theatre, ME, My Shows on September 15, 2008 by travsd

Of course, I’m on NYTheatrecast quite a bit already as host of “Indie Theatre Now”, but on the current edition, I’m interviewed by Martin Denton about my new show, “No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Show That Made Vaudeville Famous”, which opens this Thurs. Sept. 18 at Theater for the New City. I hope you listen in, and even more, hope you can attend!

Where I’ve Been

Posted in ME, My Shows, Vaudeville etc. on September 3, 2008 by travsd

Numerous kind souls have expressed concern that I have been absent from these virtual pages, lo, these many months. Thanks to them for doing so! The sad fact is that in rapid order I lost my internet, my computer, and my job — all prerequisites for so luxurious an activity as blog-posting. I hope to be up and at it again in the future in my traditional Sisyphus-like manner. In the meantime, you can find recent writing on, recent podcasts on, and — most important — come see my show..
