I’m typing this in my kitchen over a slice of my wife’s really good cherry cobbler. I’m keeping an eye on the time because I still need to walk the dogs and go with my daughter to get haircuts for both of us in an hour and a half. Then, it’s off to Little Fish Theatre to wrap up the third weekend of Pick of the Vine.
This afternoon’s performance marks the halfway point of our six weekend run, and the response so far has been typical for something that’s become a thirteen year institution: overwhelming support, sellout houses, and even, dare I say, fandom. People come out of the woodwork to see this show, often times disappearing again until the following January, when they come out to see the next one. A friend of mine has proudly attended every single installment since POV’s inception. Our hope, of course, is to keep a few new people coming back to see some of the great theater that we do between Januarys as well.
I’ve been fortunate to have been involved in each of the past six seasons, even having coproduced four of them with my wife, Holly, another LFT company member. There are many reasons why I keep coming back, which I’ll delve into on this site.
But first: walk the dogs and get a haircut. I just noticed the time.
