A Great Performer’s Great Benefit for a Great Cause

If you've ever seen local writer and solo performer Anne Galjour onstage, then you know that she's a deep and magical theater artist. Her masterpiece of a monologue, Hurricane, drawing both on her Louisiana upbringing and on her close affinity to the vicissitudes of nature, took on extra relevance in the tragic aftermath of Katrina. And now -- in collaboration with another local theater great, Ellen Sebastian Chang -- she's got a new play, Bird in the Hand. It's about people and birds in migration, and it's currently running at the Berkeley City Club. For more info and tix, you can click here or call 510-558-1381.

Tomorrow's performance is going to be a special benefit for The Z Space, my wonderful artistic home for the past decade. Tix for the show (at 8 p.m.) are $50, and will include what is being billed as "an intimate post-show reception" with Anne. Trust me, spending time with Anne is like being in the presence of some incredibly cool holy person -- she herself is a force of nature. So if you have the dough, I think you'll have a great time. To purchase tix for this benefit, call Clay Lord at The Z Space: 415-626-0453, ext. 104. (If you think of it, ask Clay why someone as ridiculously young as himself can be so mature -- I've been wondering.)

A couple of years ago, Anne took my wife and son and me (among several others) on a little bird-watching expedition along the San Francisco Marina. We've never forgotten it. I bet this show will be a blast.

Call for Feedback

Very coolly, both episodes of The Josh Kornbluth Show submitted this year for consideration were nominated for regional Emmys. Sadly, both lost out to our wonderful sister show at KQED, Check, Please! Bay Area (even after I had Check, Please host Leslie Sbrocco on my own program -- oh, the ingratitude!). So I know I need to pick things up a notch or two. And I'd love to get your ideas: Guests? Topics? New and exciting hairstyles for the host?

Also, if you dug our first-ever broadcast in front of a live audience -- I had a blast! -- let me know if you'd like to see more of those.

Please share your ideas in the comments section below.
