Mom and I just got back from seeing Radio Golf at the Yale Rep. Excellent, excellent stuff. It felt so cool to be seeing the premiere of such a major playwright's work.

Oh yeah, minor language thing: I had a stagecraft professor in college who insisted on spelling the name of one of his courses "playwrighting." I thought he was just retarded, as he also pronounced the word "aprocryphal" as "aah-poe-CREE-phul" and the word "exponentially" as "expotentially." But our usher tonight had a nametag that read, "Allison ______ '07, Playwrighting."

Stop the madness. Yes, "playwright" is the noun. "Playwriting" is the verb. RECOGNIZE.
