The Best Thing Ever: 2014-2015 American Conservatory Theater to Feature “Mr. Burns – A Post Electric Play” – Feb 18th, 2015

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

San Francisco’s Premier Non-Profit Theatre Company announced their 2014-2015 season a while back, but I missed it.

So I’m just finding out about the best idea ever for a play. Presenting “Mr. Burns – A Post Electric Play”

“A.C.T. presents the West Coast debut of the outrageous and enthusiastically acclaimed new comedy by Bay Area–born playwright Anne Washburn. The story begins in a dark dystopia, where a group of surviving strangers bond by recreating from memory an episode of The Simpsons. As the story moves decades later, their recollection becomes an almost religious-like fable, elaborately staged for adoring crowds through live theater and opera. A marvelously meta tribute to the pop-culture phenomenon The Simpsons and a paean to the power of storytelling, Mr. Burns is an ingenious exploration of how we share recollection, memory, and truth.”

There’s no way this can’t be great.

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

The pain of increased postal rates starting May 11, 2009 will be eased somewhat with news of the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee‘s decision to allow the troubled United States Postal Service to use characters from The Simpsons cartoon show. So you should beat a path to your local P.O. and pick some up.  

Stampspotters are getting excited about this – they’re planning on mailing out letters today from certain areas in order to get a souvenir cancellation printed. How about Simsponsville, South Carolina? Or better yet, Springfield, WI (Which Springfield though? The Badger State has like five(!) towns of Springfield.)  

Here’s what’s going on in Springfield, Virginia (I was afraid to play the video, but it looks intriguing) and here’s a promotion from the 94117, Haight-Ashbury, California. Click to expand:
