Thanks to everyone for sticking with me as I work out the kinks of writing a weekly column.  With everything going on in the world, it has been a little difficult.  I think for the time being, I am going to move to a biweekly format until there is more to write about.  Hopefully, things will pick up soon.  If you have anything going on, please email me at bwwdaytonjenni@ gmail.com or you can contact me via messenger on our Dayton On Stage facebook page.

So sorry that I am running late on the column this week.  It has been a very emotional week, not only for me, but for many Daytonians as it was the anniversary of the shooting in the Oregon District, unquestionably one of the most difficult times in our citya??s history.  It has been hard to think of much else but trying to shake it off and focus on how Dayton is moving forward.  I would love to be in a theatre right now, energized the performances and the audience. As cheesy as it  sounds, theatre is what feeds my soul, and I am feeling a little weak without it.  Fortunately, there are some upcoming virtual events to help us all on our journey without live theatre.
