I saw part Dawes’ sketch show, Love Me Tin­der a while back at the New Move­ment The­ater and was enam­ored by it. But Love Me Tin­der isn’t her only project, she’s writ­ten and pro­duced sev­er­al plays and has won Stan­ley and Eve­lyn Lip­kin Prize for Play­writ­ing. I could post all her cred­its, but it’s writ­ten more elo­quent­ly on her web­site. In a nut­shell, Adri­enne Dawes is busy, and her hard work has paid off.

Hoot Is Back

Hoot! is a music and com­e­dy cabaret in its sec­ond year. The con­cept is to mix local come­di­ans and musi­cians into a night of enter­tain­ment befit­ting a venue like the Sal­vage Van­guard The­ater. The the­ater will be clos­ing soon but they are going out with a bang… or hoot. Dawes has curat­ed an exten­sive line up for this year’s Hoot! Check it out:
