About

headshot 8x10 300dpi

Hi, welcome! This blog focuses on a few areas that have obsessed me for a good part of my life: Theatre and Performance, Comedy, Reading and Writing, and the Art of Magic. The blog will also occasionally include some of the photos I’ve taken. You can always identify those, because I always have a little message that says “(Click to enlarge)” underneath anything that is my own photo.

Part of the enjoyment for me is the challenge of making this a daily blog. Much as I enjoy talking politics, there won’t be much posting on political issues here—otherwise, politics would quickly crowd out everything else.

It may seem like an eclectic hodge-podge from day to day, and in some ways it is, but if you follow it long enough you may discover (as I did!) that things aren’t as disconnected as they may first seem. There are underlying threads and themes that seem to keep popping up across categories.

I hope you enjoy it all.

  1. Hi Jack, Thanks for visiting my blog. I’d really appreciate any help, or advice you can give to improving it – it’s comedy musical theatre. Cheers!

  2. Hi Jack, In my wanderings today I came across a 1987 playbill for Penn & Teller, autographed by each on the front–must be one of their earliest performances? If you collect such things let me know where to send it. I’ve been enjoying following your blog. Best, Wendy Sacks

    • That’s very kind of you, Wendy. That must have been a great show. Although now P&T have kind of grown into the elder statesmen of magic, people don’t always remember just how wild and groundbreaking their early performances were. I’m really not much of a collector–perhaps ebay?–but thanks very much for the offer. And thanks for following the blog.

      • Hi Jack–I didn’t realize you’d gotten back to me here. Sorry I didn’t see it sooner. I’ll probably just discard the Playbill–I don’t sell on ebay anymore and I don’t know how much interest there’d be in it. Hope you’re well (well, as well as any of us are feeling right now).
