    Hey, thanks for the shout out, Mr Splatterson. What an apropos choice of music — eerily apt, actually, because I have ofen thought that Radiohead’s more recent work (from Kid A on) sounds the way certain parts of How To Disappear feel.Let me know when you’d like to come see it; this is definitely a show worthy of your noirish appetite.

    Well, if it feels like Radiohead, I’m definitely looking forward to it. (I think I already have a ticket.) But here’s a dramaturgical note for you: the Radiohead song was inspired by the same book that I believe inspired the play. Hell of a song: I think we’ve all been there once or twice.
