Boise, Idaho. Lots of land, river tubing, surprisingly hip restaurants, and the site of one terrifying old school penitentiary. When in Rome, eh?
“We got work to do. We can cry about it. Or we can dance about it.”

It might be this little gem of a show, Lizzie Borden, a rock musical about the most infamous trial of the 1800s that’s currently receiving a treatment at the Village Theatre’s Festival of New Musicals (where both Next to Normal and Million Dollar Quartet were developed before their successful Broadway stints).
Belting ladies, Victorian Versace-inspired rock wear, and a whole lot a venom in this powerhouse of a show. And the entire show’s told only using four female characters!

Or this (lil bit NSFW).
He was Loki first (so what if it was in the otherwise terrible Son of the Mask?)
He’s not afraid to laugh at himself.
