Unless you’ve been living in a media-free zone, stories of celebrities spinning out of control have become part of our daily conversation—a phenomenon that may lead to a serious case of compassion fatigue. But imagine a scenario in which a star’s glamorous life is derailed not by a descent into drug (more…)

Here’s the thing I like about Arthur Wooten’s work (Leftovers, Birthday Pie, Wise Bear William): You forget you are holding a book. Sounds odd, I know, as I am an avid reader, a writer and lover of turning actual paper pages. However… when you are so absorbed in the story, you forget (more…)

Fingers crossed, we should all still be around after the Mayan Calendar fades to black on Dec. 21. Still, it wouldn't hurt to have a few good books nearby -- you know, just in case. So, whether you're nesting this week, preparing for the worst or happily venturing forth to create a stellar 2013 in your (more…)

Theater Creates Memories
The last musical I ever did before I moved away from Texas 25 years ago was Annie. I played Bert Healy and had a great time doing it before heading to NYC to test my fate with other roles. And now, here it is back on Broadway again this year. People have (more…)
