WATCH a (semi-) drunk history with Lynn Rosen HERE!

Playwright Lynn Rosen woke up one morning in 2008 and spotted this headline in her newspaper*….

Big Theft Ends in Shackles for a Young Goth Couple

And you gotta love the lede:

CLEVELAND — It was a theft so large and brazen that even law enforcement officials admit some admiration for it.

HOW COULD SHE NOT WRITE A PLAY??  And so GOLDOR $ MYTHYKA: A HERO IS BORN was born.

Well.  After a GERM PROJECT commission from New Georges, asking Lynn for an unproduce-able play.  Cause this thing had to be BIG.

Again, more on that later.

For now, read the article!  You will have admiration too!

* turns out that’s not really how it happened!  WATCH the video!
