Weekly Margin, 2018 W11: A Brief History of Colonization, Much Ado About Nothing, Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craiglist

3/16/18: A Brief History of Colonization
What: Kal Mansoor's one man show, as part of Emerging Artists Theatre's New Work Series, is part epic movie pitch, and part a humorous survey of India's colonial history.
And? Kal Mansoor is a good writer, and the piece was entertaining and informative. The frame could use some tightening, and the presentation would benefit from a director, but the work is solid and shows good potential.

3/17/18: Much Ado About Nothing
What: Hamlet Isn't Dead's latest installment, a musical and playful take on (full disclosure) one of my favorite comedies.
And? Truly delightful and hilarious. Full review here.

James Michael Armstrong, Noah Ruff, and Joe Regan as Leonato, Claudio,
and Don Pedro.

3/17/18: Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist
What: Rejected and depressed, Walt is on the brink of suicide when Tilda Swinton - supposedly answering a craigslist ad placed by Walt's ex-boyfriend - arrives to upend his life as she pursues what is sure to be her next Oscar-winning performance.
And? This was so dang silly and fun. Full review here.

Byron Lane and Tom Lenk as Walt and Tilda.
