If any of you live in the New York area and are looking for: A) Something to do on a Thursday night B) A good way to support local theater, or C) Oh hell, a little bit of both

Then check out ... hey, wait a minute, why am I suddenly getting déjà vu?

Anyway, Point of You Productions, the theatre company I helped start in 2000, is holding a fundraiser variety show on August 21. Among the many splendid spectactles — including several women performing Mamet and a one-man tribute to John Cazale — yours truly will be onstage, performing "Big Mike and the Cavendish" live.
