Karla Boos, artistic director of Quantum Theatre, which she founded in 1990, shares her itinerary for the week of April 14 in NEXT Up.
Monday: Coffee date with two cool theatre artists, Adil Mansoor and Paul Kruse, at Zeke’s on Penn Avenue, followed by Bricolage’s roast of Marty Giles.
Tuesday: Working dinner at my house with collaborators on an upcoming Quantum project: Barbara Luderowski, Narelle Sissons, Joe Seamans, Megan Rivas, Sarah Pickett and their significant others.
Wednesday: Ladies Night at the show Quantum is running, Pantagleize, at Lexington Technology Center, with a pre-show reception catered by Nancy Trice at the Center for Creative Reuse.
Thursday: Bike ride; dinner made by someone other than me?
Friday: The Armadillos at Thunderbird Café in Lawrenceville.
Saturday: Painting my garage door. At night, Quantum on the Couch led by David Orbison from the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center. It’s usually a discussion of the psychology of the characters following the show, but this show is so political that we asked Dan Simpson, associate editor of the Post-Gazette and a supremely political guy, to join us. Should be very good!
Sunday: Bike ride; searching for a wonderful, giant, empty house in the country with at least eight rooms for an upcoming Quantum production (firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ve got one).
