Don't let this cold rainy weather get you down, take my word that there are worse ways to spend your time indoors.
I've got some catching up to do. But wanted to get out the word about some tonights and tomorrows before Blogger shuts down for 10 minutes at 7 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Last Night, JC City Theater opened The God Committee. There performances take place at the Underground Theater at St. Micheal's. Here's the word from Clay Cockrell about the show : There's a $5 discount for organ donors :)
Let the games begin!
One heart, four transplant patients and a ticking clock. The God Committee is a medical drama full of high wire tension and crackling humor that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats for the entire evening. Issues of race, gender, and of course money are debated and argued while a newly harvested heart is racing toward the hospital.
Alliances are formed, broken and reformed as the committee argues, accuses, debates and ultimately votes. And just when the matter seems to be decided, the playwright upends the proceedings with theatrical dynamite.
In honoring their tradition of producing enticing material, J CITY Theater has once again chosen a script that confronts hard questions and does not settle for easy answers. You are invited to come out to the Underground Theater in Jersey City for an evening of electrifying theater.
Audiences are encouraged to book tickets now due to limited seating and a limited run.
