This is probably be the last entry of 2014. It has been a hell of a year. Up and down and all around - both in terms of travel, emotions, and the biz. 

I have not written in a while because of Banshee and the run, a new workshop production about Rosemary Clooney, the Beatle show in Africa, and a possible new teaching position. 

Banshee was a smash. It made money - not a lot but the show was a massive critical hit on all fronts for both me and the cast. Loved the show and would like to work at NOTE again. So much fun. 

We just finished rehearsals for the Clooney project and will come back to rehearse a couple of times and open for 4 nights at the Underground starting on Jan 14th. Laura wrote a very nice piece about Rosemary Clooney that I think will touch some hearts. 

The Beatles project in Africa is slowly coming together. Musa in Zim is on board as associate producer. I have figured out when to bring the show and just need dates from Reps theatre in Harare. Everyone says that they think it will be a hit. I feel it will, but it is still a huge gamble. 

Possible new teaching position would be a return to the college ranks as an Adjunct professor at New York Film Academy in Burbank as an Acting teacher. I have been interviewing and meeting with them all through December. I am pretty sure that I have the job, but no final contract offer yet. So not official yet - but it feels good so far. 

Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for reading my blog this year.
