WadsWords Found Elsewhere

In addition to writing here, I’ve got a couple of writing gigs elsewhere on the web: ATLAS OBSCURA This site hits the sweet spot between offbeat kitsch and deep-background interest for me, so I’m thrilled to be one of their writers. Plus it gives me an excuse to travel more.

NYTHEATRE.COM/NYTHEATRE NOW

First – a tip of the hat to Martin Denton, who has become a force of nature in New York City’s theater community.  Martin started with a blog spotlighting off-off-Broadway shows, simply because he was frustrated the local media really didn’t focus on them. Then he set out on the daunting task to publish a review of each and every show in New York’s Fringe Festival each year – and at upwards of 200 shows each year, that’s a daunting task for just one guy. So he started recruiting volunteers from New York’s theater community to help.

And now he oversees NYTheater Now, a continuation of his original blog devoted to current independent theater, and Indie Theater Now, a digital publishing library presenting over 600 original plays in e-book form.

I actually have a play on Indie Theater Now – Xingu, an adaptation of an Edith Wharton short story (reading the play requires a one-time purchase price of $1.29 and downloading the Indie Theater Now software platform). I’ve  also written several reviews for Martin; here are some favorites.

TRIANGLES EVERYWHERE:

In 2007, after watching a single thirty-second news piece on an observance of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire’s anniversary, the plot of this ten-minute play spontaneously materialized in my head. It was staged that summer at The Metropolitan Playhouse, a theater company with which I was long affiliated. The script is now part of the “Remember The Triangle” open archive web site, created in 2011 to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the fire.
