Good question. Had a bunch of people over, commissioned a great sign from my friend Doug, had snacks and beer and wine. A bit of a party. I was happy with it, thought the play was well received, was really flattered that the actors I wanted to read could all make it. So now...Continue reading
One more shot from the Out of Ink show for posterity. Ladies and gentlemen, your ScriptWorks staff at work… ...
The Out of Ink 2014 experience is over and I’m beat. Had a great experience all around. Got over some acting anxiety, some self-consciousness about directing someone else’s piece for the first time, and was happy to let others take the reins on the piece I wrote. Did it. Boom. And there are photos...Continue reading
The month of firsts continues tomorrow with my first acting gig in someone else’s play since college when I played Nobody #One and That Guy In Armor#2 in Mary Stuart. This time it’s another short play for Out of Ink by the estimable Carolyn Kennedy who does stuff with this group. Anyway, I play...Continue reading
It’s a month of firsts around here. Yesterday, the 8-yo pitched for the first time. Tomorrow I get to direct someone else’s play for the first time. My friend Nettie has a short piece in ScriptWorks’ Out of Ink festival this year, and she asked me to direct it. I get to work with...Continue reading
So proud of this kid today. He’s been quietly excited about it for days, since the coach told him he’d get a chance to pitch on Saturday. We’ve been practicing at the park, in our driveway, in our backyard. The 8-yo blew me away today. Struck out two and walked one in his first...Continue reading
Man, I had such a blast last night at the Spiderhouse ballroom with Ava, Tristan, Javi, Ashleigh and the producers for Testify. I was crazy nervous before-hand, kept picturing myself quaking up there, unable to put words together. But it felt easy once I started. More of that, please. I’m hooked!...
Hey, I get to do this… http://testifyatx.com/ … in a couple of weeks. With buddies Ava Love Hanna and Tristan Mercado (and more!). The theme is “coming clean.” They’re going to be talking about really embarrassing things, but I’ll be talking about what a great citizen I am. A well-balanced night. Oh, so yeah, I...Continue reading
Okay, have big potential theatrical plans for June. They are: 1) Play this character in a short play by Carolyn Kennedy: BILL, 30, reed thin, is attired in the full regalia of heavy metal. His colorful hair shoots from his skull in loong, apoxyed spikes. 2) Have my own short play It’s Time as part...Continue reading
Toying with the idea that people could rent out their homes for small fees to host intimate productions to help fill the gap left by dwindling theater options in town. Maybe something similar to an airbnb concept but for performance art. Intrigued by the idea of hosting 15 or 20 people at my place...Continue reading
