The Sabotage Café — The Fire Escape

Some friends and I put together a bunch of youtube videos for the new novel. This is the first one, full of youthful rage and ennui. More will be on the way…

Pratt Playwrights

April 27, 2007

My playwriting students will be mounting a marathon reading of the plays they’ve been working on all semester this coming Tuesday in the Pratt Student Union.  Festivities will commence at 7 pm.  The plays are all about twenty minutes long.  You’ll laugh.  You’ll cry.  You’ll be embarrassed for your past self as you cower in the presence of their precociousness.


Beth’s Big Debut

April 27, 2007

My beloved Beth Weinstein will be taking the stage tomorrow for her first public reading.  The location is Kenny’s Castaway, on Bleeker Street.  The time is 3;30, though there’s a lineup of six readers, so I’m not sure when exactly she’ll be going on. 


Looks like I’m in

Studio 360

April 18, 2007

it looks like I’m going to be making an appearance on Studio 360 with Kurt Anderson, discussing the Virginia Tech shootings and the responsibility I have to my students’ wellbeing.  That is, if I made the cut.
