From Page to Stage

The acclaimed Word for Word organization, which dramatizes the works of noted prose writers, has adapted the words of two former guests of our TV show into popular theater pieces:

  • Their run of Daniel Handler's 4 Adverbs -- based on four chapters from his forthcoming novel, Adverbs (HarperCollins) -- has just been extended through March 19 at the Project Artaud Theater. Tix and info can be found here. (Just to add another cool link to our program, former guest Craig Newmark raves about 4 Adverbs on his own blog.)
  • Also at the Project Artaud Theater: two performances of Amy Tan's Immortal Heart, adapted from the story at the center of her novel The Bonesetter's Daughter. These shows -- on March 13 and 14 -- will be their last before the production heads to France for a five-city tour. Again, tix and info are available here (click on the link for "Bon Voyage Benefit").

I feel very protective of people after they've been guests on my show. Maybe I should set up a 12-step program for them, so they can detox from all the coffee and sweets they usually consume during their short time with me? ...

Trilogizing in Santa Rosa

Just wanted to mention that I'll be performing three of my comic monologues -- Red Diaper Baby, The Mathematics of Change, and Ben Franklin: Unplugged -- at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa. The run starts -- yikes! -- this weekend, with Red Diaper Baby, and will continue over three (noncontiguous) weekends. (You can find more info on the pieces at my little, Luddite personal homepage.)
