Even when he was on the road, performing as a live version of Paula Abdul’s MC Skat Kat, Pablo Malco was always thinking about the future. “I’m a huge dreamer, man,” Malco said. “I tell my kids: When you stop dreaming, you’re kind of dead.

I saw a remarkable play in the basement of St. Paul’s First Baptist Church late last week: blank slate theatre’s all-youth production of the multiple-Tony-winning musical, “Spring Awakening.” There are just four performances left, and let me say, right off the bat: I really think you ought to go see it, too. The show blends […]
