One paragraph more!

One of my favorite freelance writing gigs of all time is writing program notes for some of the musicals and concerts that come to Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City. I get to write about pretty much anything I want that I find related to a show or concert—which is completely freaking awesome for me as a researcher and writer—and I have pretty much no word limit—which is completely horrible for me as a researcher and writer WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHEN TO STOP.

Case in point: This 79-chapter manifesto I’ve just written for the upcoming tour of Les Misérables. It took me easily 10 more hours of research than I’d intended, which is especially bad because I still have to write program notes for two other concerts before I leave for Disney on Wednesday. But IT. IS. AWESOME.

And you’ll just have to come an hour early when you see Les Misérables to SAVOR. EVERY. WORD.

Private note to Hancher so none of you had better read it: Is this headline too weird? I mean from a gluten-sensitivity standpoint?
