I am the host and creator and writer and editor of The Lunch and Judy Show. For four years – every week – DCMTA’s Joel Markowitz and I have been schmoozing for 4 years about theatre in DC, Philly and NYC and other things…like what was happening in our lives. Joel calls it ‘free therapy.’ It’s a blast schmoozing together every week, and I am so honored to bring you The Lunch and Judy Show on DC Theater Arts. And enjoy my new column on DCMTA called Judyisms.
