Getting back into the swing of things

In about 10 minutes, I'm leaving to see Riverwalk's Raisin in the Sun. While I've seen a few shows locally this summer (Talley's Follies at Williamston was particularly enjoyable), I've been so focused on work that I've not really had much time to think or write about them. Nor did I even have time to write much about the Michigan Shakespeare Festival and there were lots of interesting things about both productions that I typically would have enjoyed blogging about.

I'm looking forward to getting back into the groove. I'm also looking forward to having the time to read the two performing arts-related books that have arrived on my doorstep: Arts Marketing Insights and Invitation to the Party. What little I've read of both of them so far (about a chapter a piece) has been inspiring and exciting.

There are three shows going on this weekend. I'm planning to make it to two of them:

  • Riverwalk's Raisin in the Sun
  • Sunsets with Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
  • Holt-Dimondale Community Players' Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
(Hmm, blogger isn't letting me fix the italics so that only the play name is in italics.)
