"Sarastic reply!" "Hurt expression."

How to deal with someone unhinged who has threatened our reputation?

Need some advice on dealing with a mentally ill person over whom I have no control. Several months ago, I along with other people that I know, agreed to help someone put on a show. We run our own community theater company, and we have a lot of contacts – volunteers of all stripes, a couple of professional people, etc. Without detailing everything to the point of giving myself away, there were points along the way where we really thought we should quit, but this person was a friend, and we thought it would work itself out. Long story short, it has not. [more inside]

Looking for an Ideal Home Theater Set Up

I recently, finally, purchased an HDTV (a Samsung, from the 6000 LED series). I'm totally new to this, but as the sound is not great from the TV itself, I'm wondering what a good, not bank-breaking (but doesn't have to be bargain basement either) home theater set up is. [more inside]

How to give Minneapolis theater tickets as a gift?

I want to get theater tickets or maybe a subscription for my 'sister' in Minneapolis. I know that she and her partner are somewhat into the alternative theater scene there, and she also has a strong background in literature and music, so more classical theater works as well. They're also super busy so it has to be possible for them to fit the show(s) into their schedule. I know nothing about Minneapolis, or really about the theater world in general. Is there such a thing as a gift certificate to a theater? Which Minneapolis theater would you recommend? Other related present ideas are also very welcome. Thank you!
