I’ve been on both sides of performer-reviewer split, acting in plays after college and singing with the Master Chorale. So it is with much respect that I try to keep readers up to date on our mushrooming performing arts scene. What’s good in theater, orchestra and opera? What should you think twice about before seeing? As a St. Pete native, it was my dream to work for the Times, joining the staff in 2005 after five years freelancing. For a half-dozen years I wrote the Epilogue obituary feature. I miss running over the old Gandy Bridge and having knees that made that easier. Find me with another local, Linda Mastry, at Spinnergy or on opening night.
