Anonymous asked: So who's who in Gallow Green now that Annabella has moved on?

Good question. I guess we’ll all have to go to the Herb Festival and find out!

Meet Mr. J. Alfred Skullworth. He needs a home. And a friend. Will you be his friend? If you just don’t have room in your life for him, perhaps you could share his link and help him find a friend?

    Garth Johnson Appreciation Thread »

    chadchronicles:

    image

    Garth first came onto my radar as Boy Witch. Legend has it that he was recruited to SNM by school chum Austin Goodwin. For a while, I thought of him as Austin’s prodigy. But Garth totally came into his own and made a name for himself inside the McKittrick. Truly an accompilshed and talented…

    Glamis here, and Garth will be sorely missed. I always loved his choices within each of his characters - he had an uncanny knack for finding the most interesting and creative ways to express his character’s emotions. And his dancing… oh, my. He moved like electricity in air - a truly dynamic performer. Garth, you shall be deeply missed, and may all the luck in the world grace you in your new adventures.

    The Second Sun

    Glamis here, and I would like to take a moment to promote a new project from the wonderful and talented Zach Perez. Zach works front of house at Sleep No More and is a tremendously kind man as well as a gifted theater producer. Zach is producing and managing a show called “The Second Sun” that will hopefully be playing at J-Fest in three different states in June. The play is currently being funded on Indiegogo - the link for more information and to donate to the project is here.

    I urge everyone to take a moment, visit the page and to make a donation to help this show get funded. Thank you!

    I made a new tumblr for the shop so I’m not flooding your dash via this one with all my ‘buy my stuff, hey look at my stuff buy it LOOK AT IT BUY IT.” Not a ton there. Nothing new yet. Soon though.

    You should follow the shop tumblr. And you should maybe buy some of the things too?

          girlwiththeskylinetattoo asked: Where was your starting point for And Then There Were None?

          So, I don’t think it’s a problem to say this now, our directions were to meet at The Frying Pan. That’s a boat docked on the river around 26/12. 

          But. It was also literal.

          I wonder:

          snmsketches:

          scorchedthesnake:

          fantasticcats:

          Are the Heathens playing this weekend? Live at the Heath?

          I never hear anything about them.

          ᵏᶦᵈᵈᶦᶰᵍ!

          Truth.

          So much this.

          I just made a filter this week. If it comes from that hotel and says the word “Heathens” I don’t see it. It’s not deleted. Just…filed. And when I ran the filter I had something like 30+ emails get filed.

          I get it. The Heathens are playing this weekend. I’ve heard.

          Jazz band at the Heath? That ever gonna be a thing? What with it being period appropriate and all, and also still quite stylish and draws dollars in the city…

          Anonymous asked: So how'd you like And Then There Were None?

          I liked it. Mallory Gracenin is a god damned star. Get on that rocket ship, people. It’s going upward at great velocity. Everyone was pretty good, but Mallory was incredible. Jonothan Lyons too. And Zach. And Megh.

          Couple complaints: Couldn’t hear a damn thing unless the actor was actually facing me. The acoustics in the main room were really just not conducive to this kind of work. This led to not hearing more than a word or three of a certain recording. And honestly, more thought needed to be given to leaving people so, so far from their starting points without any arrangements. Should have made a deal with the car services…they had a captive audience desperate to get home.  We ended up paying a small fortune for a car to take us back to my car so, for the fourth time in one night, I could drive the West Side highway. :)

          The ride in to “Soldier Island” was brilliant though. Jeff Lyon was the general, and he regaled us with stories of the club, the war, his dog, a daring young man climbing to the top of the world, and a sad tale about his wife.

          Taylor Myers has a really good handle on finding the heart of a story and reducing it to the important elements. I feel like he’s perfecting this sort of minimalist style. I look forward to seeing this distilled further, but I also look forward to the day he expands into more complicated (and thereby expensive) things. This laser-precise way he has of finding the important things in a story is going to serve him well.

          Anonymous asked: Super super dumb question, but what age would you consider "appropriate" for SNM?

          Not a dumb question at all! Honestly I think it’d be too much for most 14-15 year-olds. 16-ish would be my minimum, but that also depends on the maturity of the kid in question. We’ve all seen that 13-going-on-30 kid, and that 21-going-on-12 “adult.” I’d rather have the old kid standing next to me at the rave.

          I guess it’s really a judgement call based on the child’s maturity. Can they handle the dark, the crowds, the simulated murder, the nudity and still behave themselves? Buy that kid a ticket, because they deserve to see some culture if they are that well-behaved. :)
