    Stage Right Episode 13: Will the Election Change Our Theatrical Fortunes?

    in Culture

    On today's show we will look at recent events and predict what they might mean to our contribution to theatre. Will the Republican sweep mean anything to our efforts to get the conservative voice on the stage?  Or will it mean that the left will hunker down and be even more aggressive?  We'll look at some of the theatre that was popular in more conservative times.  Will we get more of the same or will the conservative voice finally be above a whisper?

    in Books

    Author KAREN GRECO & CABIN GODDESS didn't get to finish their chat Wed the 15th. We never discussed her obsession with Dracula & exorcism, what she likes on those wieners or the 38.74 foot Crocodile in the sewers of NYC. We never even got to the bottom of her dislike of coffee...Let ALONE get into the nitty grity of the new Hell's Belle book, TAINTED BLOOD! So we decided to Hell with it (grin) let's schedule more chat time!


    Karen Greco has spent close to twenty years in New York City, working in publicity and marketing for the entertainment industry. Originally from Rhode Island (she loves hot wieners from New York System, but can't stand coffee milk), she studied playwriting in college (and won an award or two).


    After not writing plays for a long time, a life-long obsession with exorcists and Dracula drew her to urban fantasy, where she can decapitate characters with impunity.


    Her first novel, Hell's Belle, was released in 2013. Tainted Blood is the second book in the best-selling Hell's Belle urban fantasy series.
