As readers may recall, I've written here and elsewhere a few times about attending plays and concerts at the Will Geer Theatricum Botanticum, a wonderful, outdoor theatrical venue out in the Topanga National Forest. It's a bit of a drive for me to get there, about 45 minutes, much of the way through a long and winding road (and that's not even meant as a Beatles reference), so I don't go often, but whenever I do, it's a treat. They put on high-quality work, and the atmosphere of the full complex is a joy.
In what seem like a total non sequitor, if you watched the Democatic National Virtual Convention, you might have seen Billie Eilish present the world premiere performance of her new song, "My Future."
It turns out not to be a non sequitor at all. I just found out that she performed the song at the Theatricum Botanicum. It's hard to recognize, since the stage is filled with smoke and the lighting is very moody. But once you know where it is, you can see the same wooden plank flooring and couple of steps in the back.
Here's the video for those who haven't seen it, or did but want to make the Theatricum connecticum..
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
