Mix 3 parts rock and roll with 1 part "Let's put on a show!", garnish with a small piece of cheese and one cherry tomato. Serve chilled.
If you're in or near Columbia, Missouri tonight, check out Hedwig and the Angry Inch at 9 o'clock at the Missouri Theatre. John Gilbreth has the pipes and the 'tude for a note-perfect Hedwig, and Bockman's Euphio kicks ass as the Angry Inch. The expected small town connection comes from the fact that the director, Christy LeMaster, was one of three dozen or so poor unfortunate souls stuck with me as a freshman comp. teacher at Truman.

Anyway, it's a good time, and has the kind of spirit that we need more of in the world. The Pedestrian Theater Company, as near as I can figure, wanted to see a live production of Hedwig here in town and decided the only way they were going to make that happen was if they did it themselves. That'd be worth supporting even if they didn't kick ass, but they do, so go treat yourself.
