Joe Iano shared some amazing pictures of the band with blogger 2 of 2 (that’s me, if you’ve lost track). Enjoy!
Shawnmarie Stanton playing the harp is like having my brain massaged with a warm oil… so incredibly soothing! Lets just say the band gets its harp on between shows #2 and #3 tonight. Oh yeah, and the fire which you may have read of earlier… so beautiful. Hats off to 14/48 vet James Frounfelter on his nifty creation. Carol Roscoe is bouncing between the band and the actors doing her directing thing… which she does very well. She didn’t use […]
As I walked to the theatre to get my binder from the stage, 3 things happened: * Tim Hyland took me to the vault room which is now a lounge. If you’re coming to see the show tonight do not, I repeat, DO NOT shut the vault door. The only person with the combo died about 50 years ago. * When I arrived in the theatre there was a single spotlight shining on the keg of beer, tapped the night […]

While all of these virgins are at home asleep, dreaming about what their first day of 14/48 is going to present them, I sit awake thinking about my encounters with three of the “pure and innocent” this evening. Encounters which make school boys giggle and grown ups blush… below is what a few VIRGINS had to say before the big dance: COLLEEN ROBERTSON (ACTOR)“I’m afraid of nudity. Not really feeling the nudity,” Oh brother, you never admit out loud that […]
I spent some of my morning with Gary Menendez, a designer who has been volunteering for 14/48 for four years (“And I’ve only missed one weekend that whole time”). Gary is one example of why 14/48 works. And why it works so well. Gary is a professional carpenter who volunteers for 14/48 “because I love it.” He designs and creates and builds and pulls together set pieces, props, costume pieces, and whatever else directors, designers, and actors ask for with […]
