So I did this thing that scared the hell/heck out of me last week. I performed a semi-autobiographical/semi-fictional piece about being the father to a teenage son. Now that round two of this complex year is underway (and attitudes and behaviors changed almost immediately on his birthday; it was uncanny) I wanted to try...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
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)...
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
This show happened on August 27th and it sold out. But not in the super exciting way it sounds. It was one of those things where the last couple of people came in the door RIGHT as we were about to start and they barely filled up the last two available spots. Still, a...Continue reading
Why are they semi-events? Oh, different reasons, I guess. One’s not really an event yet, but there’s potential; one’s an event but it’s not really something to crow about; and the other may or may not happen. In no particular order: 1) Tuesday, August 27th: I told my softball buddies that I’d put on...Continue reading
Just a real quick shout-out. We did kind of a barebones partnership with a teacher-run theater group this summer. Somehow all the pieces worked out and they’re doing a trial run at Hyde Park Theatre opening Sunday night. Here’s the Chronicle listing. A bit awkwardly phrased but… it looks legit! I’ll be bar-tending and...Continue reading
Been helping to co-produce a new work at Trinity Theatre with local writer Rita Anderson. The piece, GLIDERS, is about three generations of women who begin to uncover family secrets right as the Apollo 11 mission to the moon is making headlines in 1969. The timing for the production coincides with the 50th anniversary...Continue reading
My kids and I attended the preview for the latest installment of Out of Ink last night and had a great time. My piece (EMPOWERMENT) is sort of a horror office comedy and I really like it a lot, though there have been some technical challenges along the way, so I was really interested...Continue reading
This is the poster. I think it looks great. Still have to get some infrastructure things in place behind it (website, ticket site, fb event, postering around town) but…. are we ready to sign off? If you see anything glaringly weird or questionable, hit me up!...
