Speaking of New Leaf Theatre, when is Time Out going to run a review of their latest production? I utilize Time Out for their thoughtful reviews more than any other publication, but I've noticed multiple other reviews for "The Long Count" and still nothing yet from Time Out.

Hi Ira,

Both because the run of "The Long Count"--just eight performances and on Fridays and Saturdays only--presented problems against Time Out's production schedule, and because "TLC" is by New Leaf's account a work in progress that continues to evolve throughout the run, we chose not to review it in TOC.

I'm still hoping to catch it myself, anyway; if I can manage it next weekend, I may write a blog post about it either here or at the TOC blog before the show's closing weekend. Thanks for asking.

Ira M.

That's too bad. Considering the amount of coverage and attention that New Leaf gets from Time Out and on your own blog, it would have been great to hear Time Out's take on this latest production, particularly because it's an original work. I think you guys are the only ones that haven't run a review.
