In 2005, The Lovely Wife, Julieanne, and I moved back to Central Kentucky. One might consider me semi-retired, though I still keep an agent in LA, who is the soul of patience, my biggest fan, and doesn't nag me too much about writing the next hot spec script. And The Lovely Wife and I have become enmeshed in our first love -- theatre -- working with an exciting , ambitious theatre company, Actors Guild of Lexington, which has been called "the flagship theater" of Central Kentucky. The theatre works diligently to achieve its goal of attaining the Actors Equity designation of Small Professional Theatre and, like so many theatres in these economically challenged times, mounts great productions while trying to keep the wolf from the door. We share the dream of many Arts organizations of Angels with deep pockets and generous hearts, grateful for any size donation, but willing to name the theatre after anyone who might want to drop two or three million on us. But, in any case, we persevere.
Anyway, Pogue's Pages will share with you Pogue's adventures in and out of Hollywood, in and out of theatre, in and out of his storm-tossed mind and whatever happens to be boiling on it. Hope you stick around as it evolves and finds its way, that you'll share your own thoughts on my mental-meanderings, and that we'll have some lively and fun discussions.

Thanks to Eric Ryan Seale, my theatrical comrade-in-arms and Associate Director at Actors Guild, for giving this computer cretin a tutorial on how to set this blog site up. Any errors are utterly mine, not his.
