Welcome to my new home!

Hello readers! Thanks for joining me at my new home – my own domain name! Woohoo – it feels so grownup. I finally bit the bullet, made a financial investment, and acquired a domain name. This took two after-2 AM late nights, lots of swearing, lots of failed imports/exports, sizing almost every single image individually, absolute confusion, and a vow to learn CSS. Well most of it was just stressing out on my part while someone else did all the work – almost everything was done by a guardian angel who now knows all the passwords to be able to hack into my blog successfully. Thanks AK, I totally couldn’t have done this without you!! I owe you a jade cocktail at the very least – no more gin martinis, I promise.

Forgive the mess – still trying to clean up a lot of links, youtube vids, and lots of little loose ends. I was reminded of how hard programming is. I don’t see how anyone without a masters in computer science can acquire a domain name successfully.

Lots of interesting things coming up – a conference, some more good shows, and possibly even an exclusive interview. Stay tuned!

Hi everyone,

Jolene (full disclosure: she is my twin sister) has been nice enough to add me to the saturday matinee blog. I will be doing reviews of theater in NYC (recently seen in the past few weeks), Los Angeles, and Washington D.C.. Upcoming reviews coming soon: In the Heights (off-Broadway), Mary Poppins, and others….! Tons of excitement. Check out my personal blog, http://jenchang.blogspot.com.

Welcome!

ok here is my attempt at keeping 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, and this is going to be a blog about my thoughts, reviews, and opinions about the shows that I see. 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 and plays, ballet, and classical music, which will probably be the main focus of this blog.

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
