Want to help Lowell Bartholomee take New York by storm? Then help him get there. The local actor/playwright/ director/filmmaker is set to present his short-play collection Blah, Blah, Blah in the New York International Fringe Festival in August, and his Bayou Radio Productions is putting on a benefit performance of the show to cover the costs of taking six actors and one crew member to the City That Never Sleeps, lodging and feeding them, and getting them back in one piece. The one-shot performance is Saturday, July 17, 8pm, at the Blue Theater, 916 Springdale. No reservations; it's first-come, first-served. For more information, visit
