T'anks-givin's comin'!
The birds are getting fat.
Please put a turkey
In the Old Man's hat!
Any kind a turkey
(" 'Tis The Season" and all that)
If the title mentions Xmas,
We'll be in the Phat!

Money, Money, Money!!!!!

Opinion from Larry Stark

The Weekly DIG, a weekly mostly-music magazine on newsprint that occasionally notices theatre, has a truly significant article that looks for "pay-as-you-can" and other offers of inexpensive live theatre available here in Boston.
BRAVO!

Oh, and the HOWLROUND Blog has published an article by Meg Taintor about the decision to close WHISTLER IN THE DARK. (I'll steal it; click here)

I wrote a book!

Yes I, Larry Stark, wrote a book* --- a little novel called
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
And you CAN buy copies of that book
Artist in Residence cover --- but Only At:
THE HARVARD BOOK STORE
1256 Massachusetts Avenue, Harvard Square, Cambridge
1(617) 661-1515
What you do is go to the bookstore, pay them $20.00, and then........
Watch while their "expresso-books machine"
Prints a copy before your astonished eyes in only four minutes!
(Honest!)
It will be a "perfect-bound" paperback
slightly warm to the touch
and will fit in your pocket.
You can talk to your friends about it
You can talk to MY friends about it!
Be The First On Your Block To.....

Guess how many THEATRES there are in BOSTON

N I N E?

N I N E T E E N?

T H I R T Y - N I N E?

That's Just In BOSTON, now. Eliminate Cambridge, Newton, Waltham, etc.
Your best guess is what?

Well, I just published:

A
Theater-Lovers' Guide

to the

N I N E T Y

Theatres In Boston

You don't believe me?
Send me ten bucks (about a dime a theatre)
And I'll mail you a copy.
Or ask me next time we're in the same theatre together.

A note of pure obstinant pedantry:
THEATER is an art.
It is practiced in THEATRES.
