UPDATE: Balk has reportedly cancelled her appearance at the convention “…due to accepting a film role which will be shooting as the convention”.  Whether this schedule conflict relates to Thicker or another as yet unknown project is unclear.

Ru To Host The MPP 4th Annual Party at the Playboy Mansion

On June 4 Balk will be at the Playboy Mansion hosting the fourth Marijuana Policy Project party. The evening will include a “live fire and glow performance”…or at least people will walk away in the frame of mind to believe they saw whatever it is to which that refers.

Tickets range from $800 to $900 dollars and are available through the link above.

Ru to Spend a Frightmare Weekend in Texas

Another convention appearance added to the itinerary, this time at “the southwest’s premiere horror convention”, Texas Frightmare Weekend in Dallas. The event runs from May 1st to the 3rd and also features Tobe Hooper, Alice Cooper, Linda Blair, Barbara Steele, Karen Black, Lena Heady, Thomas Dekker, William Forsythe and David F. Friedman.

Ru Hosts Eliza Wren’s Return To Oz Sundance Screening

Singer Eliza Wren has composed her own score to Walter Murch’s Oz sequel and will be debuting the music at the Sundance Film Festival along with footage from the film. According to SL Weekly the event will be hosted by Balk herself.

More about Wren’s project here. 


The Salt Lake Tribune has an article on the event with quotes from Balk about it as well as another questioning whether the concept is “preposterous” or not.
