My awesome friend John did me a good turn by going to the Bird Walk with me on Monday. In the 90 degree heat. The joke was that my mother pledged $25 if I didn't walk more than three miles. So that was my excuse. We don't have a final number for the fundraising, but I know that Erica's project on Crowdrise is showing $780 right now, my employer is in for $20 more, and most of the donations weren't even recorded there.
Anyway. The least I can do is plug John's show. He is performing in New Rock Theater's production of MacBeth. The Reader has reviewed it, and it seems to be great. And the comments on the review were snarky right out of the gate, so that might be worth a click. If you are into that kind of thing.
This is the coolest playbill I have ever seen:
It is running on weekends through June 25. You can get tickets here. Which I still haven't done yet. But I will!
Edit: And another review is here.
