Went to the Noguchi Museum last weekend. These are my copies of some of his 'playscapes'. I'm designing my first theater production for kids, 'Ivy and Bean.' I thought noguchi's playground and public parks might be good to learn more about. It was my first time at the Noguchi Museum. I'll certainly return

Seal walrus series by Jeff Koons at the Whitney. I pretty much decided that Koons is a plagiarist, a boor, and an asshole. But hot damn, I like his seal walrus sculptures. My colleague Adam Rigg recently used inflatable animals onstage to great effect. I once unsuccessfully tried to convince a director to put Malvolio in a sagging inflatable 'bouncy house' for a production of ' Twelfth night'. One day, one day I will put an inflatable ______ onstage.
