Wow, I just got an email from Holland Taylor, from Two and a Half Men, because I wrote a review about her one-woman play Money, Marbles, and Chalk, about the life of Ann Richards. We saw the premiere in Galveston at the Opera House back in the spring. She said the play's name has been changed to "Ann," and she's going to do it in San Antonio on December 10-19. It's going to Austin in May, and eventually making its way to New York by winter 2012.

It's a fabulous play, and I definitely want to try to catch the Austin performance.

We saw Red last night and enjoyed it a lot. It was funny, fast-paced, and Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirrim and John Malkovich were excellent in it, and the romance with Bruce Willis' and Mary Louise Parker's characters was great.

And there was a trailer for this: The Warrior's Way, a ninja steampunk western starring Dong-gun Jang, Kate Bosworth, and Geoffrey Rush. I'm ready to camp out at the theater until they show it.

I'll camp out with you for The Warrior's Way. And very cool about the email!

Yeah, Warrior's Way just looks all kinds of awesome!

And I'm definitely going to see the play again when it comes to Austin.

i was a huge ann richards fan. i can't tell you how much i miss ann richards and barbara jordan. i want to see the play even if it'll make me sad. we just don't have the quality female leaders we used to have. i mean, ann would've ripped palin apart and left behind the corporate logo festooned hide on the sidewalk in about 15 seconds and a smile. never mind barbara jordan. she'd have shined a light in palin's ear and we'd all have seen the empty in an equal amount of time, with equal poise and probably a far more elequent speach.

[sigh]

red sounds great. i'll have to see it.

oh! and congrats on the email! that's lovely! what a thrill!

That Ann Richards play sounds amazing. I loved it when you could be sitting behind a couple of old ladies in Dobie Theater and one of them would be your kickass governor.

True story.

Cool about the play ;o)

WE're hoping to see Red, if we could just find the time!
