Part of the problem was that I was swamped with work, including an extended stretch of theater-related travel that kept me more or less continuously on the go for more than a month. I tried to keep up, but I had to spend so much time driving from show to show that I simply didn’t have the steam to stay on top of my routine postings. In addition, I had some technical problems that affected my ability to post and which I have only just succeeded in resolving.
These are the pieces I wrote for The Wall Street Journal during my absence from the blog:• I reviewed the premiere of Sister Sorry, a new play by Alec Wilkinson. • I reviewed Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu’s Pass Over, the first play to open on Broadway since the beginning of the COVID lockdown, and Jessica Provenz’s Boca, a new comedy premiered, like Sister Sorry, by Barrington Stage Company. • I wrote a “Sightings” column about Frank Sinatra’s short-lived but significant interest in the bossa nova.
Now that I’m back, though, I promise to stay back. I missed you!
