Thanks!

Opening night of my play GOING GOING GONE came off without a hitch.  No chandeliers fell on the audience.  No one was injured doing flying stunts.   No one forgot the lyrics to any song (forget that it wasn't a musical).   Somehow everything came together.  To the entire creative team, my sincere thanks for a boffo show and I look forward to five more weekends with you all.

Sunday was emotional because it was Vin Scully's final broadcast after 67 years.  My play, set in a pressbox, is dedicated to Vin.   The above photo is of me, my amazing cast (Troy Metcalf, Dennis Pearson, David Babich, and Annie Abrams), and the man of the hour.

"Hope you'll make your plans to come on out and see us," as Vinny would say.   Performances Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 and Sundays 3:00.   We close November 6th. 

You can go to Goldstar or Plays411 for tickets and information.   It's a small theatre and seating is limited so drop everything you're doing and get your seats now.   Thanks much.  We now return you to today's regularly scheduled post.  Just scroll down or click here

Dear Mr. Levine: Yesterday morning I saw a middle aged man walking down the street wearing a commemorative Dodger blue T-shirt with Scully #67 on the back and 67 in Dodger style in front. This wouldn't be worth noting except the street in question was Main St., Chatham, Mass. on Cape Cod, as far from LA as you can get without crossing an ocean at some point.

Congrats on opening night. Look forward to seeing the play.

Anyone interested in the definition of class and elegance, need only to watch a replay of Vinnie's final good-by to all of us.

My wife and I were there Sunday afternoon and absolutely loved it (and you are not kidding about the Hudson being a small theater)!

Congratulations, Ken.

Congratulations on a successful first night. Is it my imagination, or does Ms Abrams seem a little uncomfortable with that hand being there?

If the play bombs, can you avoid paying income tax for the next twenty years?

Congrats Ken & sending "asses in seats" wishes for the rest of the run!

Wish I could be there to see the play, not just for your excellent comedy writing but also to watch Annie Abrams. Damn, she is one cute actress!
