We had a great turnout for the reading of Rebecca’s Hope Chest a couple of weeks ago. I was kind of overwhelmed by the number of people who came, which is a great feeling. However… I was left feeling a little down about (or at least confused by) the feedback and reaction to the...Continue reading
My dad and I hit the Mill Valley Sausalito Path the other day. This was a lovely hike through some cool areas, leading to beautiful parts of Marin County. At the end of it, we had some great Indian food. Good story, I know! My favorite part is that this is yet another trail...Continue reading
Oh yeah, this is happening… Sunday, November 17th from 7pm to 8:45pm Hyde Park Theater | 511 W 43rd St On the heels of a difficult breakup, Rebecca hits the road to visit–and reconnect with–three partners from her past (one from elementary school, one from junior high, and one from college). It’s a bumpy...Continue reading
We’ve been doing this little theater thing for five years now (ever since Doug created the sign that hangs above the door) and so we got this little announcement made – which is going to make itself into a play program soon. Toot toot! (that’s the sounds of our cheering mechanism)...
All right, I taught a high school class (and I’ve got this creepy Want Ad photo to prove it)! It went okay. The kids didn’t react a whole lot, which is hard for me, but which is also the way it goes with high school students. And it was a bit muggy (!) in...Continue reading
No, not this dream ticket. Went to Testify’s 6-year anniversary show a couple of weeks ago. The theme was The Same Coin and they had three couplets of storytellers. Each couplet (gotta stop using that word) told the same story from a different perspective. So there was a mother who told a story about...Continue reading
Next up is another co-production, lending a small hand to Melange Theatre Company for their debut production of SAINT SOMEBODY by Rita Anderson. The show opens November 14th....
I went to a board meeting for the lovely and wonderful Vela Families. This is a sort of probationary measure (a couple of board meetings) to decide if being on their board is something we wall want. They’re a great organization, but I have bandwidth considerations to be wary of. More on that later....Continue reading
Today, at an all-company meeting, with more than 400 employees (remote & in-person) watching, our CEO pops this old website onto the screen to tell everyone I write plays about crummy work environments and failed relationships. Thanks, TJ. Not sure I’ve ever turned so red in my life. (well, I have, but…) Phew, that...Continue reading
Friend and frequent collaborator Lana Dieterich posted this on Facebook and I wanted to somehow vicariously experience the connection. These are two of my favorite actors (Anne and Lana) with my (possibly/probably) favorite presidential candidate from a Town Hall event yesterday. Well done. Now if I had ONLY had the forethought to ask Lana...Continue reading
