Fascinating. Three Cheers for the USPS.
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night will keep the post office from delivering the mail. And neither will chicken scratch.
We are all born artists. If you have kids, you know what I mean. Almost everything kids do is art. They draw with crayons on the wall; they dance; they inflict their singing on everyone.
Art is about going a little nuts and justifying the next sentence, which is not much different from what a kid does. Kids do art. They don’t do it because someone told them to. They aren’t told by their boss or anyone, they just do it.
Unfortunately, at some point our art — such a joyful pastime — ends. Kids have to go to lessons, to school, do homework and of course they take piano or ballet lessons, but they aren’t fun anymore. You’re told to do it and there’s competition. How can it be fun?
Besides, if you continue to act like an artist as you get older, you’ll increasingly feel pressure — people will question your actions and ask you to act properly.
What should we do then? We need to start our own art. Right this minute, we can turn off TV, log off the Internet, get up and start to do something. Let’s be artists, right now. How? Just do it!

This is so very neat.
Review Round up for Track 3
From our start at Bootleg Theater, to South Coast Rep, to Edinburgh Fringe, to Greenwich Theatre in London and back to Los Angeles for RADAR LA, Track 3 was loved. Here’s a round up of all of our reviews:
"Theatre Movement Bazaar’s "Track 3," the L.A. troupe’s vaudevillian take on Chekhov’s "Three Sisters," thrived in this atmosphere, demonstrating to all lucky enough to catch this sprightly and sensitive riff at Los Angeles Theatre Center that its ensemble members are as disciplined and fearlessly original as any of the casts visiting from abroad." - Los Angeles Times
"The performances are outstanding…This is a company worth both watching and supporting as its reputation spreads beyond Southern California." - Huffington Post
"Mad, rad and dangerous to miss. Track 3 is a glorious treat that is sure to bring a smile to the face.” - Broadway Baby
"MUST SEE!" - The Stage.co.uk
"There’s undeniable, almost indescribable charm to director-choreographer Tina Kronis’ staging, filled with gorgeous songs and chorales performed by the superb company, which also has actors snapping their heads in unison to recorded piano ragtime accompaniment." - LA Weekly
