Where is a good place to have lunch near the theater? We are seeing Slow Food next weekend and needs some ideas...thanks!
From now until Dec. 7th, my art will be on display and for sale at BCT, The Boise Contemporary Theatre. 10-20% of sales go to BCT which is a non profit that brings theatre arts to our community. You can direct buy from my site or contact me via email if you are interested in a piece. I have a handful of new works that are a new style for me. I am letting go of trying to figure out what I am painting. I am letting go of the outcome and I am instead, letting the process guide me.

This theater can improve by not taking on the climate of our current government. They behaved in an unfair, tyrannical manner to oust dedicated, talented and valued employees AFTER they made the theater a success. And for what? $$$ Greed...sound familiar? Oh, and this was decided behind closed doors and with closed minds and hearts. Completely unethical! Again, so familiar...I'll never step foot in again. The board had every chance to find a solution other than the choices they made. I'd say good luck with your main stream theater, that's not going to be conservative (eye roll)...but you don't deserve it.
I have been a season ticket holder for many years. I find the secrecy with which the board is operating very concerning. I hope the board will be forthcoming to the public very soon.

I love this wonderful theatre. The company is always so amazing and the choice of work is thought out and brilliantly written.
“His twelve week program will get you started or encourage you to pick up your dreams and go for them again until they come true. JUDY KERR– best-selling author of Acting is Everything

The book deals with the challenging and difficult subject of WHY actors suddenly stop acting and HOW they can repair themselves to create a career comeback.

Idaho Gives kicks off TODAY! Now through May 6th we are going to try to raise $5,000 so we can get a new car for the theater.

Join us for our LAST Play On! (the play reading club) reading of Water by the Spoonful by Quiara Alegría Hudes April 19th! Here's a little bit about it: Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize!

Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. Water by the Spoonful, by Quiara Alegria Hudes, is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
