I love this image by artist Katie Griesar. She's not only a visual artist and musician, but a theater artist as well. This image captures so much of what working in the theater has been for me: you work hard, racing the deadline of opening night, you get all your rocks in a circle, and enjoy the thrill of the tide rushing in. And then it's over. Half the rocks are gone; the rest are sunk in the sand. It's time to go home. Maybe stop for a fish taco and a beer on the way as the sun sets on all your hard work. Get up in the morning. Dream up something new and labor-intensive and ephemeral to do with your time on earth. It's the best. No really. It is.
(psst: image is used by permission--some of you will be inordinately pleased to hear that!)
2Y20M will be developed at HB Studios as part of a Rehearsal Space Residency between May 30 and two public readings on July 21 and 22. If you are an actor or director who is interested in getting involved, let me know!
In Search of Lost Time will be read the The Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez, Alaska in June. If you'll be in Valdez, we'll meet (or meet again) there!
The Bigsley Project got a new draft and a new table read at the Lortel offices (thank you, George Forbes!). There should be photos of the wonderful, generous cast: Jennifer Fisher, Spencer Scott Barros, Daniel McCoy, Rachel Casparian, McKenna Cox, Dan Shaked, Dean Imperial, and Mikaela Kafka. There are no photos. See email subject line. I'm the worst at documentation. I will get better at it.
