Happy New Year, ModFab!

As you know, I'm a huge fan of both Tracy Letts and August: Osage County, as well as Steppenwolf in Chicago. As much as I'm enjoying to a return to the show on Broadway, I already have my tix for Tracy Letts' Superior Donuts, which is being directed by none other than the immensely talented Amy Morton.

I can't wait!

Wishing you and yours all the best in 2008.
