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

I and You and Walt Whitman Too

I and You and Walt Whitman Too

I saw not one but two brand new plays by the dizzyingly prolific Lauren Gunderson in the last week and a half. First came The Taming, which I heartily enjoyed. And then came I and You at Marin Theatre Company, which is more problematic. My review‘s in the Marin Independent Journal.
