Mondays are Dark

Not quite as much on this week's list: a lot of people are on vacation, I guess.  Don't forget to catch Aisle Say at 2pm.

A Code to Live By
Someone finds a copy of the old Circle Players' CODE OF ETHICS in the belongings of the late Kathleen Freeman.  LAStageBlog prints the rules portion of it, and it's worth reading.  And printing. And posting on your call board.

Mix 'n' Match
The Playgoer has an idea: a subscription package that includes the 5 shows you want to see - wherever they are playing.  OK, she's actually asking Chicago playgoers to pick the 5 shows they feel they must see this year - a virtual subscription.  But wouldn't it be cool to come up with an actual "floating" season?

Going Once, Twice - It's GONE
The old 26th Street Playhouse enters its next life - as an auctionhouse.

Taking on Take Me Out
The Miami Herald reports that Rising Action Theatre will be opening Richard Greenberg's Take Me Out in a couple of weeks. Steve Rothaus' article is littered with gratuitous beefcake photos of the cast.

Laramie Project II
10 years after Matthew Shepard was murdered, and ten years after Moise Kaufman and fellow writers Leigh Fondakowski, Greg Pierotti, Andy Paris and Stephen Belber, wrote The Laramie Project, the creators of the play revisit the tragedy,  and how the town changed in its aftermath.  The Drama Queen reports that Florida Stage will be doing a reading, one of more than a hundred theatres nationwide presenting a reading of the The Laramie Project: 10 Years  Later on October 12, 2009.
