The Internet Belongs To Us

Apparently, I’m feeling a little digest-y today, and dawdling a bit with finishing my own features. But reap the rewards:

>>>On Portland has a great two-part video interview with Mike Daisey (The Last Cargo Cult, How Theater Failed America) about how he came to the monologue form, more details on money and faith and cargo cults, and how a monologue is born.

>>>Matchbox Theatre Company, another group of Swarthmoreans (that school seems to have quite a large footprint on new theater in Philly, no?), is blogging about their preparations for Preparations for Departure, the show they’re premiering at Philly Fringe this fall.

>>>The accessible and thoughtful Dean Wareham talked to Flavorwire on Friday, giving ever more details about and insights into the Dean & Britta-scored 13 Most Beautiful . . . Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests in advance of its well-received performance in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Saturday night.
