Chris Barton and Shark v. Train strikes again
Statesman book reviewer Sharyn Vane posts a notice about Chris’s upcoming signing at Book People on Saturday April 24 @ 1pm and uses the word ‘delightful.’ Vane tends towards understatement so ‘delightful’ is high praise, indeed.
Went to see B-side from the A List at Austin Community College last night. It was an evening of little performed short plays from Ionesco, Beckett, Pinter and Albee. Really fine. I was remembering how these playwrights turned the theatre world on its traditional ear by taking the commonplace and cranking into the absurd. They were a precursor to so much dance, music, film that pushed the envelope of permission. Really, they tore that #10 up. Fine play and well done.
