Forest of Arden? Forest of Arduous

February 25th, 2016

Moving to Edinburgh from St Andrews last fall has brought live theatre back into my life, and hence, air back to my lungs. I’ve seen more stage performances in these first 8 weeks of 2016 than in all of 2013 & 2014. But since moving to the UK, I have benefitted massively by getting to […]

The Memorial Coatroom Literary Society Reads George Sand

May 29th, 2011

Those of us who worked at Intiman Theatre over the past few years, couldn’t fail to notice that nearly everyone employed as Front of House staff had or was working on a Masters Degree, or had attended a conservatory, or was basically just incredibly erudite. This may have resulted from the fact that working FOH […]

Little Did She Know…

May 17th, 2011

Late at night, Friday April 15, I wrote yet another post about the many businesses in my adopted neighborhood of Lower Queen Anne that were closing their doors. What I could never have predicted, is that only 12 hours later, I would receive notice that the place where I’ve worked since 2006, the entire reason […]

Time Wasn’t The Only Thing They Stepped In: Beware Mary Poppins The Musical

Narrative Mixology

March 21st, 2011

I’ve fallen a bit behind in my cocktail recipe posts. Something I’ve been super excited about is that at the end of last season I launched Intiman’s first Signature Cocktail Menu, offering a selection of crafted cocktails in addition to the two Show Specialty drinks we do for every production. The genesis of the Signature […]

Molière Would Totally Have Drunk These

October 23rd, 2010

Time for another round of Show Drinks: cocktails we (me) at Intiman Theatre create to coincide with the current production. For Christopher Bayes’ outstanding production of Moliere’s ‘A Doctor In Spite of Himself,’ we created two fun drinks, the first of which is the best cocktail I’ve ever created (at least up until that show). […]

When Good People Makes Bad Films

September 23rd, 2010

The critically acclaimed and greatly anticipated (by myself and Maryann) film “Me and Orson Welles” by Richard Linklater proved one of the biggest film disappointments since, well…it was one of the most colossal movie let-downs in recent memory. Since I find it ultimately undeserving of a review, here instead are quotes from mine and Maryann’s […]

Oh How I’ll Miss His Elegant Handwriting

August 15th, 2010

Reunited for one magical summer (which is about to come to an end), Ian & I have been bar-brainstorming- both for cocktails, inventory, menus, everything. Basically, we need to open a bar together. We could call it popCULTURE and it could be a cocktail bar/dvd&comic book retail store. What do you think Ian? But for […]

Narrative Cocktails

July 26th, 2010

Time for another round up of Intiman Theatre’s specialty cocktails, some from last season and some we’re serving right now. I created a lot of these. I did not create the cute little quotes. Try these at home. The Year of Magical Thinking By Joan Didion The Gin Didion – A mature, refreshing drink with […]

I Like Getting Paid in Gift Cards

May 8th, 2010

Because then I “have” to buy stuff. I did a few jobs for school that resulted in some Amazon.com money. Can’t wait till these folks show up at my door! We Two: Victoria and Albert: Rules, Partners, Rivals By Gillian Gill The Madwoman in the Attic: The Woman Writer and the Nineteenth-Century Literary Imagination By […]
