After a six month hiatus, during which
TSI / PlayTime left its old theater and moved into the beautiful theater complex at 123 East 24th street (that was formerly run by the Blue Heron Arts Theater), TSI / PlayTime is resuming productions on Friday, June 30 at 8 PM.

I have a certain fondness for the 24th street theater, because I premiered my Valentine's Day show, "Love's Will" there, as well as for TSI / PlayTime, where I premiered "Love Is My Sin".

For information and tickets, contact TSI (212 719-0500) or

I've created a new blog:

Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets, not counting several sonnets embedded in the plays.

Through this blog, Sonnets By Shakespeare, I'm planning commentary, performances, and films of the sonnets, together with the texts. I'll also be giving references to books, and links to sites with other films, performances, and commentary on the sonnets.

I just posted on the site some comments on Sonnet 65 (Since brass, nor stone, nor boundless sea...) together with a film containing a performance and visual commentary on the sonnet.

The film was uploaded to Google video.

The role of "My Love" in this sonnet is played by Meagan English. It was quite a task to find the right person. I must have looked at way more than a hundred pictures and resumes and interviewed at least two dozen actresses before finding the right character. Meagan has an exceptional look with bright eyes, an interesting smile that seems to hide secrets, and a fresh face.

She was a pleasure to work with in shooting the film. Although she has no lines in this film, her voice has character and she reminds me of a young Lauren Bacall. Part of the mission of this blog (QPORIT) is to PREVIEW interesting talent, and I am looking forward to following her career.
