The Foreigner April 28, 2012



We just say a play called “The Foreigner” at Huntington University’s MCA Studio Theatre.
The play was very funny and, in parts, very poignant.
But, what I want to mention here is the young, very talented cast.
My wife and I see a lot of plays and musicals. Indy, Chicago, as well as here
in Fort Wayne Indiana.
This cast rivaled some of the best we’ve seen at more “professional” venues.
Each actor was amazingly good. If this is typical of the acting students at
Huntington University, then all I can say is “Wow.”
I’m pretty sure we’ll be going back.



“The Foreigner.”
Charlie……………………………Josh Cookingham
Froggy……………………………Dom Corsoe
Betty……………………………..Meagan Heffner
David……………………………..Kyle Lindsey
Catherine…………………………Kate Smith
Ellard……………………………..Matthew Burtless-Creps
Owen……………………………..Nate Adams
Townspeople……………………..Charles Booth, Kris Kreager, Stephen Planalp, Lauren Sowers
Winner of two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards, this gem of a play is certain to cause side-splitting laughter. The reclusively shy Charlie (Cookingham) leaves England and reluctantly accompanies his friend, Froggy (Corsoe), on a trip to a fishing lodge set in rural Georgia. Once there, Froggy informs the locals that Charlie is from an exotic country and speaks no English so that Charlie may be spared the embarrassment of making idle conversation. However, the plan backfires as the locals quickly begin to confide secrets to Charlie that challenge his ability to remain silent. “A constant invitation to relax and laugh at the foolishness of life” remarks The Village Voice. You won’t want to miss this uproarious comedy!

“LOST” Meets “Velvet Elvis” September 30, 2011



Yeah!

Pastor Rob Bell and ‘Lost’ Exec Producer Carlton Cuse signed for ABC drama “Stronger.”

“Stronger” is a non-supernatural drama with spiritual overtones, humor, and a helping of autobiographical input from Mr. Bell.

“With his knack at understanding culture, his creative abilities, and his understanding of the message of Jesus, I think we can expect some profound things from [Rob Bell]. Rob doesn’t seek to copy culture, but he is involved in culture making.”
– J.R. Woodward

Boy oh boy, I have HIGH expectations for this.
I can hardly wait!
