Well, it's October again and just as with the past two Halloween seasons, my play Frankenstein lives again! This time around, the show is being produced by River Company, a troupe who not only knows how to stage plays, but also design one really stellar Franken-bird. The genesis of the project started with a dear colleague … Continue reading The Year of Women and Frankensteins
Ah, autumn... when the leaves fall and... freeze to the ground under the snow? Ah, Minnesota... So besides the weather, what changes does the season have in store for me?

While both … Continue reading Middletown: There’s a lot More in Between

Hmm… I haven’t done that … Continue reading Mr. Hannam Goes to St. Paul
