Theater Blogs and John Adams

Considering my laziness and recalcitrance vis a vis blogging, it's nice to make someone's top 50. (Especially considering she included some real blogs, like the inexhaustible Adam Szymkowicz, who's now interviewed some 300 playwrights.)

And by the by, this book had been recommended to me by Kevin Newbury, and some other friends, and it's very smart, funny, self-deprecating and has some intriguing things to say about a hard won creative life; John Adams' "Hallelujah Junction." I was a big fan of his "Doctor Atomic" at the Met, and this is a great one to read while dashing around town, doing last-minute holiday shopping.
