New Stuff

How come all the work comes at once. After the hectic schedule of the Fringe Festival - Almost a full month off with nothing going on. That was nice for a while - then suddenly it is all going again.

1. Past couple of days busy with getting ready for Banshee at Theatre of Note. Auditions on August 16th. 

2. Also asked by Art Council of Long Beach and my good friend, Victoria Bryan to be on the grant review committee for Long Beach 2015. It is a real honor and lot of reading. OMG! The booklet of grants is so big I haul it around in a travel case with wheels. It is huge.

3. Also asked to consider producing a new play sometime in the fall or new year. Based on a book - it is about the Civil War and a bi-racial love story between a white girl and a slave. Huge story with a lot of bells and whistles needed. Big cast in period costumes - it will be expensive and hard to produce. Reading the script now.

4. Writing grants or getting ready to write some grants for producing and teaching ideas for next year. Including a return to Zim if I can swing it.

Overall it has been an extremely busy year so far. Getting ready for Africa (Jan), Teaching and touring in Africa (Feb), Stop in Barcelona (March), turmoil, engagement, Hollywood Fringe, Coming To Zim (US run), directing La Bete, and marriage to Silvie Jacobsen!! That is a lot in 6 months! I am tired just reading that!
