VERY happy that the Colonial Radio Theatre has won the SILVER OGLE AWARD with our production of Ray Bradbury's SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. I'll be in Bloomington, MN for the July 3rd ceremony. Chris Snyder produced, Jeff Gage did the music, and Nancy Curran Willis directed. Congrats to the cast and crew!

the unsteady revolution

I'm watching the HBO series JOHN ADAMS on DVD. Why has Hollywood abandoned the tripod?? I swear you can get sea sick watching this show. Fantastic sets, CGI, acting - but couldn't they get a tripod??? I watched a couple of other made for tv pictures with the same style. Where's William Daniels when you need him?

On the other hand, just finished watching THE ADAMS CHRONICLES, which I remembered loving when I saw it for the first (and only time) in 1976. Incredible series with George Grizzard and William Daniels .... and yes, they had a tripod. So far, this version trumps JOHN ADAMS by a mile.
