Marin Theatre Company’s Lasso of Truth seems like it was pretty much made for me. It’s a play about the creator of Wonder Woman (and his wife and their lover), as well as the cultural legacy of America’s favorite superheroine.

I’d pretty much have to, writing about her past adventures every week.
It’s Wonder…Thursday?! Marin Theatre Company unveils Carson Kreitzer’s Wonder Woman play, Lasso of Truth. Read my feature in today’s Marin Independent Journal.

So that may be a good time to come check it out.
