Thanks Joe Iano!
HERE ARE THE ARTISTIC TEAMS! Four world-premiere plays paired with four courses of food based on the theme “Do What You Got to Do” Play #1… “Nood What You Soba Nood.” by Amy Escobar, directed by K Brian Neel with actors Andrew Shanks, Tricia Beigh, Kristina Sutherland Rowell and Mike Gilson.

Play #2… “Spiders and Flies” by Kelleen Conway Blanchard, directed by Jose Amador with actors Kelly Johnson, Troy Mink and Stephen Hando. Chef Michael Figueroa will create a salad or soup […]

Everyone helped everyone else, we proved to one another we could do this, every […]

According to Jim Jewell, Megan Ahiers is the reason this weekend has run so smoothly. According to Megan Ahiers, Jim Jewell got locked out on the smoking porch both weekends of 14/48. The first weekend she only realized that she got the message long after it was sent. She saw they were locked out and thought “Oh shit, this is from 20 minutes ago.” While she was being interviewed, she was called to make sure the toilet paper in the bathroom […]
