Opening Day, ReduxHere we are again--opening day. It's a little counter-intuitive, because we just did that three days ago--but that was the beginning of previews, and now this is the actual opening itself, when the critics and friends and tastemakers and God knows who else all descend upon the theater to pass judgment on Yours Truly.

That sounds a little too dark. It's a beautiful day out there, and the show is very ready to be seen--in fact, most of my attention after tonight shifts to WASTING YOUR BREATH, a show that hasn't seen the light of day in six years.

Today we're going to go over to Telegraph and see what there is to see, then get to the theater early and put the show on for the good people. Afterwards, a party. Then tomorrow, back to work on the next step.

In the meantime, check out this Q&A with Tony Kushner. He can be a wordy bastard, and I've griped about him in the past, but damn me if this isn't one of the best Q&As I've read in a dog's age. That man is trying to win my heart, I tell you.

Hope to see you at the show this evening, if you're in the Bay Area.
