Things I Read: "Thriller" and "Star Wars" Musicals; Crab Thief; Advice for Playwrights; Awkward Facebook

Speaking of Michael Jackson's "Thriller," they're turning the classic 1982 music video into a stage musical. Before you groan, consider that this is an infinitely better idea than Star Wars: A Musical Journey.

This guy has balls. He stole crab legs from a grocery store and later tried to return them. But police report that he had eaten all the meat and reassembled the shell, which was now empty.

Adam Szymkowicz dispenses some terrific advice for beginning playwrights.

And Jon Hunt ponders the awkward situations that only something like Facebook could create.

    "The Hong Kong Connection" is a legal thriller about a gutsy female attorney who takes on high ranking International officials. It's a taut, rollercoaster of a ride from New York to Palm Beach to Washington D.C. to Hong Kong. The plot is expertly woven, the characters persuasive, and the dialogue snappy and spot on.
