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.

Friend and frequent collaborator Lana Dieterich posted this on Facebook and I wanted to somehow vicariously experience the connection.

Okay, so maybe “great” is too strong a word (except that it’s pretty significant for me, personally) but as I recover from this thing, I’ve had to scale back my usual activities for an extended period of time. And since I’ve got this Fitbit now which tracks sleeping and heartrate patterns, I’ve been watching...Continue reading
A couple of shots from our successful August 27th event, sending the Austin Ball’rz up to Kansas City for the World Series of Softball: ...
