Local Girl’s Tumultuous Rise and Fall from Fame

By Nick Fracaro at 9:02 pm on Sunday, December 30, 2007

local girl fame gif

Dear Local Girl,

We are all deeply saddened here in Brooklyn by your recent tragic fall from fame. Upon receipt of this momentous news the Rat Sass executive committee convened in special session over the holidays.  In a decisive and unanimous action the committee has awarded you the coveted Walk of Fame Star.

Rat Sass Walk of Fame Stars are real duplicates of the replicas made by the same artist who creates the Hollywood plaques given to the celebrities when they receive a star on the sidewalk.

The Rat Sass Walk of Fame Star follows the lead of Muhammad Ali’s star, which is displayed on a wall of the Kodak Theatre, not on the sidewalk, due to Ali not wanting his name walked on by “people who have no respect for me.”  

All members of the Rat Sass executive committee have pledged to wheatpaste a Local Girl star onto the theater’s wall every time one of them visits Hollywood and Vine.

Best regards,

nick
CEO
Rat Sass Executive Committee

PS
The Rat Sass executive committee is still accepting nominations for the 2007 Walk of Fame Star in the five obscure Theatrosphere “best of” subcatergories.

  • Best Hype of Outrage Against George Bush, NYTimes critic, or Satan (and other Christians) to Increase Links and Blog Stats
  • Best Self Plugging or Infomercial
  • Best Display of Sycophancy toward Print Media
  • Best Deletion of Unpopular or Embarrassing Post by Its Author
  • Best Kowtow to the Common Denominator Reader

I Trusted You

By Nick Fracaro at 8:45 am on Monday, December 24, 2007

I am presently writing for the next issue of New York Theater Review. More like, I am trying to write. The medium feels totally alien to me. How do you write about the theatrosphere for a journal that won’t be published until this spring? I already need to ammend partially what I said three weeks ago in my State of the Union. But instead of blogging on this subject as I normally would, I will be writing on it for the journal instead. Despite the struggle, or because of it, I like the assignment and the small group of bloggers editor Brook Stowe has gathered to examine the subject.

At the crux of everything is the private v. public dilemma of how we represent “who we are” in our new digital medium. Primary to both my practice and exploration here at Rat Sass is how this new realm impacts on relationships with our peers in theatre. Those relationships then impact on how we produce theatre, as well as how we document and represent theatre to the rest of culture.

Of course I am interested personally in George Hunka and Leonard Jacobs when I explore what they write in their blogs because they are both active members in the theatre community beyond their writing. However, I only comment on their public personas, not their private lives, as I attempt to catergorize the New Georges of the Theatrosphere. My investigation is how the New Georges impact and interact with my own public persona and with the representation of the theatre blogging/theatre community to which I belong.

I write and talk privately to some peers within this exploration. I also write similarly on different semi-private theatre listservs. And ultimately I also post on this blog as part of the study. An understood aspect of the dialogue at all these places is trust, and its converse, risk. I risk a private or semi-private email to you and I trust you will not use it against me. Or I risk an honest public blog post (as George did) even though it may ostracize or divide me from the whole or part of the theatre community — at least temporarily. So there are different levels of trust and risk at each of these places.

I usually discuss most of the dialogue at all these different places with Gabriele, my partner in life and theatre, and my writing editor, in whom the trust/risk public/private converge. Our individual or joint public risks in theatre have the safety of the private trust we have built over many years between one another and our closest friends and peers (our theatre). The interaction of this trust/risk within the community is what theatre means to me.

Food for Thought

By Nick Fracaro at 9:27 pm on Sunday, December 16, 2007

I often visit the Tree
Untangling from fiber as living flesh
Serpent tongue
Eve’s inner ear wishes
Whispering sweet nothings
Washing away memory of earlier gods
She tastes Adam’s apple
Flesh so like yet so unlike her own
This is not transgression this
Is life seeking its own godhead
Swallowing its own tail

Elmer and Bugs, Sylvester and Tweety, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote
Looney Toon Socratic Method
Hunt and pursuit but never any capture
Also Strindberg’s eternal war between the sexes

Self Portrait
edge of ledge of knowledge
diva tongue
fridge
