Or as much of it as may want to read a blog about the arts in Central Illinois. I’ve been whining about the lack of coverage for books, theater, music and art in this area for so long that I decided it was time to put up or shut up and start offering some ink to some authors and artists, if I can figure out this blogging thing.
It’s a big IF, but I’m gonna try.
So why is it called A Follow Spot? As Stephen Sondheim put it:
I don't need a lot,
Only what I got,
Plus a tube of greasepaint and a follow spot.
That’s “Broadway Baby,” from my favorite show, “Follies.” I figured anointing my blog with something from “Follies” could only be a good start.
So let’s get started throwing that spotlight around. I’ll list your performances or shows if you send me the info, and I will review theater or books if they tickle my fancy. I’m hoping for lots of links and lots of press releases coming my way.
