About me

Here is my a blog dedicated to my favorite obsession, theater, centered around the Bay Area in California with occasional forays elsewhere. I’m an avid theater goer. This is an informal blog about my thoughts, reviews, and opinions about the shows that I see, from the viewpoint of a theater lover. I’ll also include posts about general theater topics as well and basically, whatever I want to write about. My favorite genres include Broadway musicals/plays, ballet, and classical music, which will probably be the main focus of this blog.

I am not affiliated with the industry professionally, and my most important credential is enthusiasm in seeing as much theater as I can and reading about it, with a few classes in dance criticism, dance history, and music history at Stanford University. I don’t pretend to be an expert. I’m simply a big proponent of promoting theater by discussing, talking, and sharing intellectual conversation about it. It also happens to be one of my favorite things to do.

I hope you enjoy!

“And here’s to the girls who play smart–
Aren’t they a gas?
Rushing to their classes
In optical art,
Wishing it would pass.
Another long exhausting day,
Another thousand dollars,
A matinee, a Pinter play,
Perhaps a piece of Mahler’s.
I’ll drink to that.
And one for Mahler!”

-Stephen Sondheim, “Ladies Who Lunch”, Company

Aside from my theater obsession, I’m a medical student with a special interest in neuroscience.
