Shameless Plugging

I've been directing for the past month or so for the Scottish Rite Children's Theatre. After the inevitable struggles of first getting to know a theatre company and staff, I've got high hopes for the show. My little old goal was to make the show the best the company has done yet, and I'll rely a lot on feedback from the staff and audience. We've gotta be hella close, though.

Tonight's the preview audience, then, the wonderful charity crowd, when we finally get to see whether the audience interaction bits this theatre is so fond of work out. Cross yer fingers for me.

What a relief, though, to be doing exactly what I want to do, with all the research and homework and psychology work of getting the actors and designers and me on the same line of thinking. There are some strong personalities involved at the Scottish Rite, me included, I'm sure, and my worries about the style of the show not pulling together proved to clear up in the end, for the most part. I hope I successfully walked the line between seeming confident and calm and seeming just plain blithe.

So a big thanks to all the folks at the theatre, for laying on me all the trust that has to come with hiring a new director; here's hoping you're as satisfied with the results as I hope to be.

Updates, then, after the preview crowd and the opening show.

  • Finally, A Cure for Night Time Boredom
    StubDog.com is changing nightlife in AUSTIN forever.


    AUSTIN (DECEMBER 20, 2006) – We are proud to introduce the arrival of StubDog.com, a website devoted to offering discount tickets to events throughout the Austin and Houston area. This new internet company has big plans for injecting energy into Austin’s Nightlife. The latest player in the vast cultural revival of Austin, StubDog.com aims to bring the community together, and encourages the masses to tap into a variety of events for about the price of 2.235 gallons of gas. The goal is to make Stubdog.com a one-stop shop for people in the local area who are looking to venture out into the community and explore the old, new, and unknown things to do. We want to help answer the question, "What do you want to do tonight?" STUBDOG.COM was conceived to create a single place where you can go to find affordable events in your area.

    Deciding what to do at night can be frustrating and usually leads to the same things over and over. That’s why Sam Levassar and Mingo Lee, two Texas natives, decided to tackle the problem head on. Ironically, an Aggie and a Longhorn were able to work together to create StubDog.com. “What we wanted was someone to give us a list of cool events that were going on in our area, give us a little background and then let us try it out for a fraction of the cost. We never found that person, so we decided to do it ourselves.” – Sam Levassar, Co-Founder, STUBDOG.COM

    STUBDOG.COM is a website geared directly at generating revenue for local businesses during times when they are unable to “fill the house.” We accomplish this by leveraging a percentage of their unsold seats and offering discounted event tickets on our site to attract new customers.

    Local companies have complete control over the amount of tickets they want to sell for each show, the cost of these tickets, and any other restrictions such as dates and times. The only stipulation is that the discounts on these tickets are sufficient enough to appeal to potential customers. Most of our partners’ discounts range between 40-50%. Since we are only offering tickets that would normally remain unsold, Companies incur zero cost while turning a profit.

    As far as consumers are concerned we are an online goldmine. We gather together all the well publicized and not so well publicized events and offer them at discounted prices. It's great for the community because it makes events more accessible to everyone, brings people together and lets them know what's going on. We are actors, dancers, artists, and entrepreneurs who think it’s important to support the arts and to have a finger on the pulse of the community.

    One of the goals of Stubdog Events is to generate NEW people who might not know about a venue or specific show. The most unique part of our site, and very beneficial, is that we are a cross marketing platform that enables companies to reach a more diverse audience. By listing a variety of events, such as theatre, music, spa, etc.., our typical customer is someone, or some group looking for new things to do in the Austin area. We are not only advertising to target audiences, but to others who might not normally go to, or even be aware of the event, and might, consequently, be better lured into giving it a try at a discounted cost. You could also post a link on STUBDOG.COM so our customers can learn more about other events at your venue.

    The better venues we have, the more our site will grow in popularity and the greater benefit we’ll provide to our participating venues. And we will finally provide the ultimate answer to the age old question, “What do you wanna do tonight?”

  • The anti-impotency treatment you are going to adopt just after being identified with erectile dysfunction is not likely to yield any fruitful result if you do not abide by the precautionary instructions recommended by the physician. For instance, after procuring viagra online if you administer cheap viagra without providing the necessary details to the doctor with regard to your medical history then there are chances that viagra intake might prove disastrous to you. Most particularly, if you are taking nitrate based medicine such as nitroglycerin patches to treat a specific medical condition you should inform the doctor immediately so that he doesn’t suggest you to buy viagra. The usage of Viagra by any person using nitrate-based medicines can trigger off health disaster and as such you can definitely avoid the imminent harm by explaining your medical history to the doctor and avoiding to buy viagra online if the drug is not meant for you.

  • Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've
    had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
