Jared Mezzocchi

 The pandemic was a terrible time for live performance, but Jared Mezzocchi buckled up, rolled up his sleeves and thrived. Here's my interview with him, pegged to his new show at the Geffen Playhouse.

A year of streaming international theater

Touring may have stopped but in the past year I was able to watch a lot of subtitled theater thanks to increased streaming, peaking with the Golden Mask festival in April. And then I wrote about it all for the Times.

Enter the science-fiction column

 Honored to be one of four columnists now tackling streaming genre movies for the Times! My turf is science fiction, and my first installment is here.

Robert Kirkman mood board

 After all these years being obsessed with The Walking Dead, I finally talked to Robert Kirkman — but it was for Invincible. A great treat to hear about his influences. Click here if you want to know what landmark movie Kirkman's dad introduced him to on VHS.

Assassins and Romeo and Juliet

 No, not in the same show — unfortunately. Those are just a couple of the entries in this week's streaming column, which is packed to the gills with goodies. Dive in!

The Jackson C. Frank Listening Party w/ Special Guests

An interesting concept for this new streaming play: the listening party. In this particular case, of the one and only album by Jackson C. Frank — and honestly I hadn't heard of him until the show. My Times review is here.

Streaming theatrical double bills

Starting off April with more streaming theater, including a double bill that feels so right that I refuse to believe the companies didn't plan it that way. Details? Thataway.
