Re: “Empanada for a Dream

A lot less expensive than Steppenwolf's The Motherf**ker With the Hat and probably more authentic, considering this is an autobiographical reliving through childhood events, from multiple points of view and mentions a lot of similar culture. A solo show is undoubtedly the hardest to perform, and might have benefited from minor supporting roles, occasionally showing up on stage, but this format is as true as you can get to retelling a difficult and amusing personal experience. I haven't seen Steppenwolf's production, but I was looking for a New York fix and I found it here.

Re: “Before he became a voice of the American right, Orson Scott Card wrote a really good book

the difference between the so-called "free speech" people on the right and left, is that "free speech" people on the left feel what they believe in, whereas "free speech" people on the right don't feel the ramifications of their words, because if they did, they wouldn't be on an organization actively trying to prevent marriage from being redefined to include same-sex couples.

See, conservatives love to frame the marriage issue as a peaceful co-existing institution alongside civil unions, but they can't frame or envision themselves as part of the same institution that includes the rest of the human race.

the user abbreviated by ITCIROTO, you're forgetting that ancestral homosexuals have been discovered in archeological burial grounds, with opposite gender clothing as their final resting status, indicating their wills were were respected for the gender they wished to be seen as.

Re: “Romance is for suckers

I give this article the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't being entirely serious. The primary reason I've been reading the Reader for over 10 years is that the theater reviews are written by the last remaining romantics: old critics. And I'm still young.
