Issue #28 — We’ve Turned a Corner
|January 15, 2013||Posted by admin under News|
Steve Wagenseller served as News Director of HTS since July of 2012.
It’s a so-long-and-thanks-for-all-the-fish moment for me at Hitting The Stage. As of tomorrow, I will be putting aside my blue pencil (do editors have blue pencils anymore?), relinquishing my post as News Editor, and slipping away into the theatrical night. Well, more or less. I still plan to write a few articles and perhaps a few reviews for this great site, but the title of News Editor will be passed along to someone fresher (and hopefully younger) — and that’s the way it is in theatre….
HTS provides a terrific service for the local theatre community. It deserves your help as well, dear readers. It’s a community forum as well as a site for reading great behind-the-scenes interviews, insightful reviews, and the occasional article or opinion that raises some issues—or starts a controversy.
I’ve been proud to be a part of it.
With that bit of news out of the way, let’s see what’s on the HTS menu for this week.
- Boeing-Boeing opened at Manoa Valley Theatre and a number of our staff reviewers were there to enjoy and to critique. Check out the reviews by Yining Lin, Kim Shire, & Scott Robertson.
- Also check out our backstage gallery of the show!
- Rap’s Hawaii returned to the Honolulu Theatre for Youth stage and two of our reviewers have their say about the production: Malia Baloyot & Nicole Tessier.
- Our indefatigable assistant editor Nicole Tessier has also produced a full and chatty edition of The Green Room, chock full of the happenings at theatres around Honolulu. Drop into TGR and see what’s up!
