Reading List

I purposely didn’t bring much money to the AATE conference this year, because the vendor area tends to suck me in and then not only have I spent all my money but I’m stuck trying to figure out how to transport all these new books home. I was very good and tried to just take notes about books I want to look into, publishers that seemed interesting, etc. And yet somehow I still ended up with a suitcase full of books– people were giving them away for free! The two that I actually got at conference that I think I will actually use are a collection of plays that Coleman Jennings handed out at his Jose’ Cruz Gonzalez session of his, and a book of theatre research sites in New York City.

Here’s the list of reading materials I didn’t get at session but am going to be seeking out at libraries everywhere very soon:

    Newington Children’s Theatre Company did One Hundred Dresses this past spring. I didn’t get to see it, but it sounds like an interesting story. Also, it takes place here in CT.
