More theatre, a quick burst before the ocean; and egoboo

I've seen three plays in three days, all good.

I saw "The Rose Tattoo" by Tennessee Williams on Wednesday- My take on it is that the play carried the actors in this one. Great play, but the acting was just good enough. Serafina and Assunta were fine, but the rest of the cast was weak.

And I saw the first preview of "After The War" at ACT, and liked it. It's the premier of a play set in SF in Japantown after the return of the interned Japanese, before "urban renewal". Good play, good actors, great set!

Since the person I was sitting next to on Wednesday was an actor (one of three) in "Fiction" and received several compliments during the intermission, I went to see that play last night.
She was VERY good, as was the male lead (although he was playing a jerk). There was just not enough chemistry between him and the other actor to make it work perfectly, but she was otherwise very good, too. But it was about writers and journals, and life and death and love, and a lot of "Fiction", and I enjoyed it a lot.

I've had a bit of egoboo lately, having seen my name in print three times recently-
I helped with with the reprints of the "Carl And Jerry" stories from Popular Electronics in the 50's and 60's, so got an acknowledgment there.

And I was quoted in a local newspaper column about public transportation.

And I had an article published in "The DX Magazine" (very geeky).
