Just a quick note that tonight I'll have the honor of giving out an prize at the New York Innovative Theatre Awards, being held at Fashion Institute of Technology. The category: "Outstanding Performance Art Production." Yes, I know: Aren't "performance art" and "production" mutually exclusive on some aesthetic level? Perhaps not. I'm looking forward to the festivities and mingling with the tons of talented folks. In other news, Stefan Weisman and I are getting ready for the London premiere of our one-act opera, Fade (Oct 22-25 @ Hoxton Hall). I'll be flying out early to sit in on rehearsals, and to see as much theater as I can. The National is of course top of the list: Katie Michell's ...Some Trace of Her, War Horse and Ralph Fiennes in Oedipus. I can't see everything, sadly. But what shows would you Londoners or UK-watchers recommend?
