We are memorable....

Hi Folks!

If you have been involved with the Boston theatre scene at all for the last 40 odd years then you are familiar with Larry Stark. For those of you who are not familiar with the man I could try to give you a brief history and explain how much he has been involved with Boston theatre, but I don't think my limited typing and spelling skills could do it justice... So I will leave it to the Wiki folks, he has his own Wiki link which I give to you Wiki now... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Stark.

Every year he makes a list of the most memorable shows he has seen and this year WE made that list with out first Prime Time show The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). We came in at #71. [meaning we were the 71st play he saw, note compliments of Ms. Waldron] That's not to shabby for our first time out! here is the link to the list if you want to see what other shows caught his eye!! http://www.theatermirror.com/twtwtw2007.htm

Also... In the coming weeks, during your morning T ride, keep taking peeks into Boston Now. That's all I have been cleared to say at this time or I would have to self destruct this blog... and that would not be good for anyone!

I am all nervous. NERVOUS I TELL YOU! Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......
