Hold On To Your Butts

“Hold On To Your Butts,”

65 million years ago, dinosaurs ruled the earth...25 years ago, a movie about dinosaurs came out that ruled the box office.

For many millennials, their one nostalgia flick, the one favorite movie from their youth with an epic story, special effects, and iconic score, is Jurassic Park, which has remained the gold standard of dinosaur flicks for the past twenty-five years.

The Actor's Nightmare

This play was inspired by the well known dream that many people in professional and amateur theatre have, that they go must perform in a play that they have inexplicably never been to rehearsals for, and for which they know neither the lines or the plot. So in this play George is an accountant who wanders onto an empty stage, not certain where he is or how he got there. The stage manager informs him he’s the understudy, and must go on in a few minutes. George doesn’t know his name, doesn’t think he’s an actor (“I think I’m an accountant”), and has no idea what play he’s supposed to do.

Failure: A Love Story

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead -- expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.

Eventually, when Shelby dies from complications related to her diabetes, M'Lynn, her mother, has to deal with life's most difficult challenge: the loss of one's child.

Once Timmy arrives, things aren't so bad.
