WHAT MAKES HENRIETTA RUN?

That was the question everyone was pondering at Thick House last night.  Our third staged reading of the Salon Series Play-Off was Lee Brady’s “comedy of bad manners,” HENRIETTA ENGLISH, directed by Andrea Gordon.    Executive Producer Carol Fregly joined an enthusiastic audience to follow Henrietta’s adventures via the terrific performances of cast members Amber Crane, Howard Johnson, Jr*., Maureen Coyne,  Kim Richards*, Paul Stout, Charles Dean*, Lorri Holt*, Dennis McIntyre*.

CRITICS MEET PLAYWRIGHTS AT 3GT NEW WORKS FESTIVAL

We had such a terrific conversation with our special guests last night, the SF Chronicle’s Rob Hurwitt, SF Examiner’s Jean Schiffman and SF Weekly’s Lily Janiak.    All three critics generously shared their views with our rapt audience of playwrights on topics ranging from “what’s the point of writing a review” to “should critics be concerned about revealing their personal biases”  to “how do you choose which new works to review.”   The discussion was frank and engaging– and also extremely fun.   One thing was clear in the end: we all share a love for theater and a desire to turn as many new audience members on to the excitement of seeing new work as possible.   Thank you so much,  Rob, Jean and Lily!
