Saturdays are special, but leave me too blah to blog...

Two shows today, at 4 and 8pm.
Maybe I'll be able to blog about that later.
Meanwhile, in the news: a USA home for Corrie, but not till next year:
Politically charged "Rachel Corrie" leads bold Rep lineup for 2006-07
Misha Berson -- Seattle Times
Seattle Repertory Theatre is now the first major U.S. regional theater to announce that it will produce "My Name Is Rachel Corrie."
The controversial play, a hit in London, will appear at the Rep (March 15-April 22, 2007) as part of the theater's boldly contemporary 2006-07 season........
Esbjornson says he read the play months ago, found "it very moving and well-done," and the New York flap did not affect his decision to produce it here.
"The fact that Rachel Corrie was from Olympia, and went to college at Evergreen, is a big part of why we want to do this," he noted. "This is about someone local, who could have been any of us. And it's about what happens when your passion and activism reaches the level that hers did."
