Crowdsourcing Hockey

Hockey season is upon us. The tellers in my bank wear game day jerseys. People refer to their team in the possessive — “we” — despite the fact that the only contribution individuals make is to buy sufficient gear and tickets to enrich the owners sufficiently to pay the salaries of better players.

So why don’t we up the ante on that? Let’s pool our money and buy a team. Our team.


Why Isn't There More Theatre By and About Women?

It seems a no-brainer to me. Every theatre school teems with female students. At least half the audience of any play is women (80% of ticket sales, according to some). Many of the men are only there because their wives dragged them. 

And yet, far more plays than not are by and about men. Across the country, women scramble for a precious few roles. Including so many one dimensional minor parts: the supportive girlfriend, the saintly mother, the hot chick.
