A new blog for a new project

According to the Huffington Post, the production of IT IS DONE at The Pig ‘n Whistle is one of the best shows of the year.   Congratulations to all involved.


America’s Brightest Star runs at Railroad Playhouse through November 3rd.  Audiences and critics alike have raved:

“Goldberg’s impudent and cheeky comedy makes great fun out of America’s love/hate relationship with fame and reality television…America’s Brightest Star is an impressive beginning for Railroad Playhouse.  It would be a shame to let this play leave the station without seeing it.”  Cynthia O. Topps, Times Herald Record

A ripe multi-media rapid-fire-succession stage-show embedded with mature scenes…Goldberg developed a dialogue littered with double entendres twirling alongside a subtle metaphor about the life of bees…The play is both funny and avant-garde.”  Happy Hudson Valley

America’s Brightest Star is a carefully crafted tale of innocence inside a laugh out loud dark comedy that by the end, has you somehow rooting for each character.”  Jay Long, Hudson Valley Insider
