    ethan: thanks for covering the ‘labute new theater’ festival–extra thanks for the nice words about the evening, but it’s not always easy to get publications/critics to worry much about short plays and it’s a form i love and believe in so i thank you doubly for taking the time to do so here. i see you’re a writer as well (i have definite thoughts about writers critiquing other writers but i also know that there is a long history of such things in the arts) and so i wish you well with your own work. take care and best luck with your own words!

      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my blog, and also for your kind words of encouragement. This means a lot to me. I also love the short form, and some of the best work I’ve seen in recent years has been at the one act festivals. Looking forward to Summer Shorts. Be well!
