a place for me to collect scraps of information that interest me about the theatrical world (whatever that means)

Daily and constant practice of drawing by Bourdelle gave rise to an abundant and varied graphic production, both on the style, themes (intimate portraits, landscapes, nudes classic, figures, architecture, theater stages , preparatory drawings for sculptures) and techniques (pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolor).
You are waiting for the subway and a woman, a stranger, asks you for the time.
You show her your phone. She tells you she’s running late — and then draws you into a conversation that propels you, somehow, into getting on the train with her.
That’s how Witness starts. It is one of five 30-minute plays — or as its creators say, “theatrical interventions” — from LONEtheater, running in repertory as part of the undergroundzero festival. And it’s unlike anything I’ve seen before.
All five of the plays are shown for an audience of one. When you buy your ticket, you’re given detailed instructions of where you should go and what to do so that the actor(s) will recognize you. What follows is a thrill-ride of an immersion experience, at least with the play I saw.
One on one theater fascinates me. I’m obsessed with a show at Edinburgh that can be described as “You sit in a room alone, waiting for the phone to ring.”
Oh man, I love/hate one on one theater (which really means I love one on one theatre).
