The Bitter Lemons' Family

This picture was taken at the Fringe Awards last night and in a moment that is still bringing me to tears with laughter as I write this, when we were introduced to come to the stage, Enci Box (the woman in the picture and co-founder and publisher of Bitter Lemons) decided to bring her two kids London and Sydney to the stage with us. But here's the funny, Ben Hill introduced us and said "Colin Mitchell and his Bitter Lemons family...". And then of course "the family" mounted the stage. read more

Listen to the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Bitter Lemons' Critics Panel

The beauty of recording something is that you can then compare it to those that reported on that something and see how well that reportage turned out. Apparently, Paul Birchall's reportage was a bit off and he's made several corrections since the original publication. I never asked for any of them, but I appreciate, Paul, his editor Rob Kendt and the crew at AT doing their best to be as fair as possible. read more
