First of all, how about that Supreme Court decision bringing marriage equality to every state in the union even Arkansas? Pretty big stuff, eh? I burst into tears when I heard the news, and I don't even know why. Something about gay people finally being officially recognized as full and equal citizens I guess.
Anyhow, this post is to tell you that I'm leaving tomorrow morning for Waterford, Connecticut, where I'll be attending the National Critics Institute at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center for the next two weeks. To tell you the truth, I'm a little nervous about it. All the introductory materials were like, "I hope you don't like sleeping 'cause WE'RE GONNA WORK YOU LIKE A DOG!"
I'll return to Chicago on July 11 and will resume blogging shortly thereafter. I'll leave you with this scene from Ratatouille, which makes me feel bad about being a critic in the first place.
