Goings on in the Great North Woods: The Theater

Saw a fine play entitled Jimmy Higgins last night at the St. Lawrence here in Portland, ME. It's a one-man show about a fictitious socialist labor activist, acted and written by local theater luminary Harlan Baker. I'd figured it'd just be a lot of left-wing crap, and it was, but the script is solid, funny, and character-driven, and the guy can act. It's good stuff, immensely entertaining.

It was only at the St. L. for the one night, but it'll be at the Meg Perry Center on May 30, Dana Warp Mill in Westbrook Friday June 13, and The Theater Project in Brunswick "the first weekend in June", whatever that means. If you're in the Portland area, see it.

Who the fuck are you, and what have you done with Arlington?
 
I think it is Arlington, but he's using his Serbo-Croat keyboard. And typing with his eyes closed.
