Thom Pain (based on nothing)
A moving solo show and Pulitzer Prize Finalist He's just like you, except worse. He is trying to save his life, to save your life—in that order. In his quest for salvation, he'll stop at nothing, be distracted by nothing, except maybe a piece of lint, or the woman in the second row. Thom Pain (based on nothing) is one man's attempt to mythologize the loss of innocence we all experience when we shift, sometimes in a single moment, from child to adult.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission will raise tolls another 6% in January, for the 10th year in a row resulting in a 2017 trip from Ohio to New Jersey now costing $55 and $39.25 for E-ZPass users. The increases are in part due to the Turnpike's requirement since 2007 to pay PennDOT $450 million to help subsidize public transit. State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale wants to eliminate or reduce the payments to PennDOT fearing commercial trucking firms and motorists will avoid the Turnpike and use non-toll roads.
