“What do they say about the best laid plans?” After one listen to the The Youngest's sophomore effort, the band's wary lyric proves an apt bellwether for their generation's growing anxiety. Thirteen unified tracks roar with sonic energy, colored by the crashing nerves of adulthood and cementing the group as one of the most alluring young bands from America's heartland. Chicago's The Youngest will release See It Through on October 28.

As those lines were read by the “stranger” during the first Zoom rehearsal for The War of the Worlds, director Matt Ripa, M.F.A. 2008, looked into his computer screen at his student actors. “You could see the hint of familiarity come across their faces,” he recalls. “It hit home.”

David Mamet's American Buffalo has never been what you might call a comfortable play laced as it is with profanity, crime, and violence. If done well the tension in Don's 2ns Hand Store should continue to build and build until it predictably results in chaos. But what Seattle Immersive Theatre has done with their current production is to not only give the audience some top-notch performances of the show but also put us all right there in the shop so the danger is not only palpable but at arm's reach.

The romantic notion of purchasing one's ancestral home, in Elio Scorsini's case, in northern Italy, conjures up dreams of an idyllic lifestyle of extended vacations, perhaps even retirement.  But family histories and closet skeletons can easily get in the way of even the best laid plans.  This is the story of a young man who emigrated from war-ravaged Italy in 1950 to provide a better future for his family in Canada, and the events that befell the people he left behind.  It reminds us of the thousands of Italians who came to this country seeking their fortune, only to realize that they would never move back to their beloved, but damaged homeland.

Directing A Year From Now has been a giddying challenge from a coffee-fuelled start to an adrenaline-rush finish. On a sunny morning many months ago, I sat down with producer and Artistic Director of RedBellyBlack, Kate Goodfellow, to discuss our next project. We had just about recovered from the physical and mental exertions of the Edinburgh Fringe, and we wanted to get stuck into something new.
