I’m extremely excited to announce that my one man show, “…and then I woke up.” has been accepted to the 2015 Chicago Fringe Festival this coming September!!!
More details as I have them.
Great day! Thanks to everyone who has helped me get to this point so far. Especially Fred Curchack, Thomas Riccio, Brad McEntire and Audacity Theatre Lab, and Erin Singleton and everyone at Nouveau 47 Theatre!
Monday night, December 8th, I performed a 20 minute selection from my solo show “…and then I woke up.” at the Audacity Solo Salon at the Margo Jones Theater in Fair Park, Dallas. The evening was hosted by Audacity Theatre Lab boss Brad McEntire, and featured performances by Brad and local writer/performer Adam A. Anderson.
The evening was awesome! Brad opened with a selection from his solo show Cyrano A-Go-Go, the story of his entry into the theatrical world through Edmond Rostand’s play about the man with the big nose.
Adam then gave his spoken word performance The Creation of an Asshole. It was dazzling. Rhythmic, rhyming, and brilliant.
Finally, it was my turn. Unfortunately, I was in the process of losing my voice and had somehow neglected to take some water up on stage with me. Nonetheless, the performance went very well. There were plenty of laughs, and the notes I got were things that would be corrected in the context of the full show. In that, performing only 20 minutes of a 60 minute show means there are some references that don’t quite make sense unless you’ve seen the first part of the show. But, that part has been workshopped to the point of being finely tuned. This middle bit was getting its first real spin outside of a classroom. Had to see what it could do, and came away happy.
The full show should be on display soon! Watch this space.
Opening tomorrow, A Very Nouveau Holiday, of which my show Playing Santa is a part, was named by Dallas Morning News theater critic Nancy Churnin as one of the Top 5 shows to see in Dallas this weekend! Don’t miss it!
On December 11, 13, 18 & 20, I’ll be performing, alongside my good friend Lance Lusk, an original short play called “Playing Santa” at A Very Nouveau Holiday Show at the Margo Jones Theater in Fair Park.
But, it’s not just Lance and me! Oh, no. It’s an entire evening of awesome short plays from some of the area best playwrights. We’re talking Brad McEntire and Ben Schroth up in here!
So, please go to the link below and RSVP. It should be a super fun show.
But note: I’m only performing on Thursdays and Saturdays. If you come on Friday or Sunday, I won’t be there. But, if that’s the only day you can go, you still should.
It all started when she made me this piece for my birthday…
18″ x 24″ on cardboard
There are made of 100% cigar bands. Even the fine details. It’s really amazing. I’ve watched her work and it’s mesmerizing. The amount of talent and attention to detail that goes in to each piece is mind boggling. Multiple artists have attested that they’d never be able to do the same thing. It takes a high level of technical skill, a dizzying attention to detail, and an pretty singular vision. It’s really impressive.

And the best part? She does commissions!

I’l be performing two times (for a total of five actual performances) in the month of December.
First, come see me at the Audacity Solo Salon on December 8th.
This is the second Solo Salon after its debut in August of this year. On this particular night, I’ll be featured alongside Adam A. Anderson and Brad McEntire, two incredibly talented performers who I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing many times in my other life as a theater critics.
My performance will be a 20 minute selection from my solo show “..and then I woke up”.
This is a workshop type atmosphere where each of us will take turns performing, followed by audience feedback. It’s a really cool chance to see what’s on the Horizon in the Dallas theater scene.
The location is the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park.
Also, it’s free!!!
Show starts at 7:30.
