I am excited to launch my blog on Area Voices. I’ve had a blogspot on the website for The Brainerd Dispatch for a couple years, and I’ve been writing on my own website/blogs for almost five years at Play off the Page. I use my space on this website to promote arts and entertainment, including reviews from theaters like The Guthrie, The Ordway, and the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis, as well as area performances and events.
