Rudyard Kipling on Isolation

“We’re all islands shouting lies to each other across seas of misunderstanding.”
― Rudyard Kipling, The Light That Failed

Is anyone feeling isolated in this Corona Virus precautions environment?IMG_9518


The critics have been kind


The reviews are in and “One Down,” the new play by my son, Michael, is a hit.

“The play, written by Mike Poblete…is a moving, frequently funny look at loss, raging, drams and human connection.”

–Deborah Martin, Arts Writer, San Antonio Express-News

If you’re in San Antonio area , you can catch it at the Overtime Theatre through August 27.

If you’re in the NYC area, Michael has a new play going up on August 15 at the Louise Lortel Theatre, 121 Christopher St at 4 pm, called “Surfacing.”  It’s free, but you need to register for a ticket.



Surfacing: Aug. 15 in Greenwich Village

I’m very excited to announce my son Michael’s newest play, SURFACING, being developed by Primary Stages as part of the Drills 2016 series! For you non-theater folk, Primary Stages is a celebrated Off-Broadway company. Basically, this is kind of a big deal for Michael.

The month long rewrite process culminates with a FREE staged reading Monday, August 15th at 4pm at the Lucille Lortel Theater in Greenwich Village. Here’s the link to book your seat:

I will still be in Europe at that time, but I hope you can make it. It is free, but you need to book a seat.
