Seminar by Theresa Rebeck, now playing at Landless Theatre Company, is a witty, revealing look at the realities of being a young aspiring artist today. The story follows four New York twenty-somethings as they begin to navigate a graduate writing seminar led by a bold and caustic instructor. As he breaks them down one-by-one, the students start to question their willingness to bend for their craft. Do they have what it takes?
In the conclusory installment of #weirdfrance, TheatreBloom readers are invited to meet the woman behind the— well, the woman. The world’s most beautiful, albeit unlucky, woman, Deedee as played by actress Casey Dutt. Cohesion Theatre Company is nearly ready to debut their production of 13 Dead Husbands but not before hearing what Casey has to say.

Not your typical Santaland story or in any way,
