Most Thursday and Friday nights for the past decade I could be found hard at work...laughing in an aisle seat.

Have a hoot
The best comedies always make you cry. What's a good laugh if it doesn't touch your heart and make you care? That's what's so great about Bernard Slade's "Same Time, Next Year" at Circle Theatre. It's that hearty kind of funny. And to make the evening even funnier, my guest for Thursday's opening performance, Diane Steggerda, was talking about plans for the 50th reunion for Grandville High School. A woman in the audience that neither of us knew overheard her and determined that her family purchased the house where Diane's family once lived in Grandville. It turns out the two women grew up in the same bedroom at different times. That could be the inspiration for a new play, "Same Room, Different Time".
