I had the opportunity to hike and travel through parts of Colorado and New Mexico last month, staying with friends and family along the way. The trip culminated in a kind of writers’ retreat in Albuquerque where I stayed in a house on the corner of a memorable scene in Breaking Bad. But I...Continue reading
I’ve got a couple of shows coming up in January and February for FronteraFest. More details on both (probably) later, but… here’s what’s on the docket: Friday, January 17th: A Series of Open Letters to my Teenage Son This is a solo piece where I’ll be addressing (semi-autobiographically, semi-fictionally) my son from ages 13...Continue reading
Just over 3 months ago I posted this graphic showing how my heartrate had gone up after a month or so of being less active. So now I’m basically back to normal in terms of regular activity (though with a slightly different focus) and the heartrate has finally hit the low it was pre-surgery. Again,...Continue reading
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....
