I don’t think I ever knew that A Christmas Carol came as a musical. Then again, if you had asked me which film I saw of A Christmas Carol, I would not be able to tell you that either.
The discovery process of my revelation and a few curious ghost stories from the cast can all be found on the new Pioneer Theatre Company blog I posted.
Check it out here:
Post-dislocated shoulder only allows me to tube the Provo River! Here’s a recap of the event…
Make sure you got your tube.

Hey, I’ve got a new guest blog over at the Pioneer Theatre Company‘s website. Hilarious play from artistic direction, Charles Morey – Laughing Stock.
Hear personal horror laughing stock moments from the cast and crew – you know, after I had given them a few times to grab some cocktails.
Check out my
racist guest blog for Pioneer Theatre Company‘s production of Find and Sign!
Stereotype each cast member in their music tastes, judge them by their looks – just as I did and then, go watch the world premiere of Wendy MacLeod‘s new play, Find and Sign before it ends January 28, 2012.
RENT! The musical! Playing at Pioneer Theatre Company now! Go check it out before it closes this weekend!
Okay, so… I am totally a fan of Rachel Moulton. She’s so fucking hilarious! First, in Black Comedy. Now, in Rent.
Her performance in Rent was the perfect angle for the opening night party blog. Get a sneak peak of her performance in Rent plus a few other “behind-the-scenes”-like bonuses at my guest blog for PTC: Moo for Me – Rent Opening Night Party.
Cinco de Mayo – Booze and chips and desserts. That’s how I like to celebrate. Okay, okay… maybe something more sustainable as well – tacos, taquitos, nachos, anything along that deliciousness. But dessert, that is the most precious…
So, flan and tres leches! Thanks to David Lebovitz, there were recipes in his book, Ready for Dessert: My Best Recipes, for both desserts that I could utilize.
*Butterscotch Flan (or in the closest online variation I found: Chocolate-Dulce de Leche Flan)
*Victorian Sponge Cake (which I could transform into tres leches)

A quick trip to Pib’s Exchange during Friday’s lunch break… Rainbow socks. Superhero costumes. Funny ties. Handcuffs. Nothing. Nothing struck a chord. No inspiration.
A run-in with Skylar… Silver. Coneheads. 10:30am. Done.
It was decided. We were going to go all out silver and have cone heads. What were we? Silver people with cone heads. No specificity. No exact definitions.
After a night at the DI (the local go-to thrift shop), an alarm-woken morning, a scramble to the hardware store, and a few hours of glistening silver to our clothes and bodies – we were finally ready to pursue our heart’s desire on the delightfully sunny Saturday it turned out to be… BEER! We were finally ready to head down to the Tour de Brewtah (late as we had planned on being there).

Last week, I attended the Pioneer Theatre Company rendition of Sunset Boulevard. Opening night, baby! I had never seen the movie or musical before, but to describe it… It’s like The Graduate with sung dialogue in film noir style. Lynne Wintersteller does so well, I’m scared to step foot in her house (if I was ever invited, of course… no stalking here) for fear of coming within her grasp.
The night was a blast. Read more about it through my guest blog for PTC: http://www.pioneertheatre.org/blog/2011/05/the-eyes-have-it.html.
What’s a better way to start the four-day Thanksgiving weekend than awesome friends, wine, food and… more wine!?
Call it “holiday spirit,” “Thanks-eve,” or just a good ol’ excuse for celebration — A couple of weeks ago, while prancing about town, Alex and I decided we should do a wine pairing dinner with a few close friends. We split six of us into groups of two to take on a type of wine (red, white, sparkling/dessert) and pair it with at least 2-3 food items. It turned into quite the memorable (or not so memorable to some of us in our drunken stupor) event.

Halloween. One week away.
I asked my friend Heather to pick something from the Marvel Universe — someone female, black or dark hair, something easy. Oh! And someone that did not have a super tight outfit. Nope, I am not that confident… nowhere near that confident to pull off that look. Plus, I am a creature of comfort… If I’m going to a party to drink and eat, I need extra room to grow.
Five minutes after linking Heather with the Marvel Women, she found X-23. Black hair. Younger gal… seemingly not too tall, normal clothes **translation: not too tight**. Done.
I could pull off the pants, owned a black tank top and already had the black hair. But, how could I pull of the claws?
