Rather than give any digital ink to J**** F***** or Brantley’s “She was asking for it” remark, here’s a review of the original Broadway production of Of Mice and Men* from 1937.

*I read an essay by Nick Horsby who said his biggest mistake was starting his book’s title off with a preposition. “How are you feeling about About a Boy?” “What do you think of Of Mice and Men?”

Anyone else thinks this looks like a terrifying horror film?

Steve is a medical practitioner. Cristina is attractive. 

Anonymous asked: I'm applying to study Theatre Studies in my local university and to get in I have to pass entrance exams. The exam is about a book on postmodernist theatre, performance instead of classical plays etc. The point of this ask is, any tips on how to to study theatre theory on something so different from what I usually love about theatre (namely drama and plays)? Strange question, I know. Ultimately I have to figure it out on my own, but I love your blog and appreciate your thoughts a lot. Thanks! :)

Oh man. I guess looking at themes and connections across plays and productions? That’s what helps me remember things, anyway. Probably also examples that fulfill concepts. I don’t know. I haven’t taken exams in a long time, thank god.

Words can be your friend or your enemy, depending on who’s throwing the book, so watch your language.

We prefer that the females be 18 to 30. BUT if you’re older & look good for your age, we’ll consider you.

Ohh here’s a tumblr that’s going to make me laugh and cry at the state of theater.
