Brad and Stardust spent a lovely evening discussing theater over delicious food in an elegant setting with charming staff at the New Delhi Restaurant.
Then, we made our way over to the Custom Made Theatre for opening night of the world premiere of Rachel Bublitz’s “Of Serpents and Sea Spray“, a play about the strange and heroic journey of a girl, tormented by the loss of her parents, who eventually manages to make sense of her life (directed by Ariel Craft).
The Ritual Art Troupe is the brainchild of Stardust Doherty and Jacob Breedlove, conceived as a vehicle for nurturing the creation and production of new art in whatever form.
The name came to us as a result of a brainstorm during a three-day ride from Portland to San Francisco, visiting friends, family, and animal spirits in Eugene and Arcata with stops to check in with the ancestors at the Wolf Creek Radical Faerie Sanctuary and at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, which contains seven percent of all the old-growth redwoods left in the world, along the way.
The street entrance of the EXIT Theatre. There is a no parking zone in front of the theater, but according to the House Manager, no one ever seems to get ticketed for parking there. If no parking is available, then one can double-park and unload with someone monitoring the vehicle and its contents.
