Penny For Your Thoughts

penny_orloff_newYou may have noticed a new byline at the bottom of stories recently. Or the fact that we’re posting new content more than once a month.

Indeed FineArtsLA has a new managing editor: Penny Orloff. She will take over the everyday tasks of the site while founder Christian M. Chensvold steps back for a more general editorial role, which still includes all responsibility for the cleverness or idiocy of story headlines.

(In fact, Chensvold is busy with other webular projects, including his other site Dandyism.net and a forthcoming site devoted to the Belle Epoque. Those interested in contributing to the project are encouraged to e-mail him.)

But back to Orloff, the chosen candidate in our craigslist-wide search for a managing editor. Not only does Orloff work as a freelance writer and editor, she studied voice at Julliard and sang over 20 principal soprano roles with the New York City Opera. She also wrote the novel “Jewish Thighs on Broadway,” starred in the stage version off-Broadway, and wrote the libretto for Allen Shawn’s opera “The Ant and the Grasshopper.”

As FineArtsLA also has several other new writers currently on assignment, individual bylines will now appear at the bottom of stories.
