Sometimes I Like The Theatre…

Sometimes I Like The Theatre...

Because I am always talking about how much I hate theatre (odd for a theatre professor and director, I know), I thought I would shake it up and talk about some theatre stuff I’m REALLY excited about. #1: That’s Weird, Abuelita. I took my three-year-old to see this yesterday and we both had a great [...]


Best Hair Day Ever

Best Hair Day Ever

Amores, I’m sure I have many good qualities. I know a lot of knock-knock jokes, for example. And I laugh all of the time at the stupidest things (Adam Sandler movies or the aforementioned knock-knock jokes). And I am, despite routine crabbiness about how-come-people-don’t-care-more-about-injustice, a genuinely hopeful person. But I’m also rolling in the bad [...]

I am in an “It’s Complicated” relationship with L’Oreal LeGloss. About a month ago, my friend Dyan sent me a Twitter telling me that the new L’Oreal LeGloss was a “lip gloss revelation.” (I think there may even have been an “OMG” in there as well.) My friend is a master of looking cute on [...]

Stay in the Moment, Paz!

Auditions for one of my fall shows start tonight. That’s right… ONE of my fall shows. I think I have set myself up for a month of panic attacks by agreeing to direct/develop two pieces that open within two weeks of each other in October. Luckily one is a remount and one is a workshop, [...]
