In 1896, when London had become to a certain extent "Ibsen-conscious," Jones made another attempt at serious drama with Michael and His Lost Angel. Again he was hooted by the audience and condemned by the critics. It was too forward looking for that generation and not sufficiently plain spoken for the next, as a later attempt at a revival proved.

It was a big, long list, and we just slowly started to cross them off as we went. … [Read more...] about Daniel Levy Looks Back on the Evolution of ‘Schitt’s Creek’
Well, it's fairly interesting. I was taking pilates classes with the president, Cindy Hardin, and at the time I was serving on the Township board as a director. I served on the Township board from May of 2012 to November 2016. So Cindy asked me if I would get involved. This was right before The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival 2013.

Saturday's message follows an email C.K. sent several months ago to the same list saying that he would continue to use that platform and that anyone who wished to unsubscribe is invited to do so. He included an unsubscribe button prominently on the message.
