Bitch in LA, Mi Casa in Portland, Maine

It has been a crazy May and June 2018. The Bitch is Back - An Elton John Cabaret opened in LA at the 3 CLubs bar and took off. Great houses, wonderful response and now extended to June 30th and won a Producer's Encore Award. SkyPilot has struggled in the previous months. Midnight was a critical hit, but no one saw it. I had disagreements with the Board about things as we got used to working together. Also, working without a space or stable financial backing is hard, yet, the energy and cast of Bitch seem to make up for all of it. It was so uncertain what the show would be as we put it together, but BAM - it took off like a shot with the audiences that have seen it. 

June 16th, I traveled to Portland, Maine to be part of the PortFringe 2018. The 2nd time I have presented this show. 4 shows in a lovely city and staying with amazing hosts in their lovely condo on the water. Really special. 1st show was a little rough, 2nd show was (I thought) terrible but got good reviews, 3rd show I hit the groove, but played for 1 person, and the 4th show - killed it to a packed house. 

One special note - on June 17th - Bitch was onstage in LA, while I opened Mi Casa in Portland Maine. 2 shows in opposite ends of the country at the same time. Now that is special!!
