Countdown to Thanksgiving 2013

Maybe I’ll talk about the Synergy panel I served on last weekend. Maybe I’ll write about how I’m spending Thanksgiving at Harry Potter’s Magical Kingdom (I...

God Is In The Details

I thought I would write about the fascinating amount of details that I am focusing on in my everyday life here at The Playhouse. And given that coming up with a title to my blog posts has proven to be the hardest part about writing them, I got really excited, because immediately I was like,...

Life Inside the Bubble by Maura Lohan

The Gulfshore Playhouse Administrative Office has been lovingly dubbed “The Bubble” by certain GP staff members. At the peak of season, our little room at the far end of the Norris Center houses 8 people working on everything from creative conversations about an upcoming production to payroll. And, as you can imagine, it gets a...
