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!

This is the beginning of a great journey!

“…and then I woke up.” at the Audacity Solo Salon!

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.

I don't need no freaking script! The thing on the music stand is my Zoom audio recorder. We filmed the performance.

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.

She’s a talented artist in many respects. You should see her on stage acting. Amazing.

But, she also works in visual art and her current work is nothing short of amazing.

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.

I’ve had a play accepted to the 2nd Annual A Very Nouveau Holiday Show, at the Margo Jones Theater in Dallas’ Fair Park!

The piece is called ‘Playing Santa’ and takes the form of a Vaudevillian double act in the vein of Abbott Costello, with some Didi and Gogo thrown in for good existential measure.

Playing opposite me is the very talented Lance Lusk.

Watch us as we debate how best to audition for an play Santa, why we’re doing it, and what exactly it means. It’s a fun piece. And we wear Santa outfits!

Of course, this show is part of a larger evening of short plays by some of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area’s most talented writers. Come see pieces by Ben Schroth, Brad McEntire, and others.

The full run of the event is December 11th – 21st, with performances at 8:00 on Thursday through Saturday, and 2:15 on Sundays.

However, my show is only playing on Thursday and Friday nights. The 11th, 13th, 18th & 20th.

So, there are only four opportunities to see my show in particular.

Make your reservations early. It should be a fun evening.

Here’s the link to my Facebook Event page, which everyone should be able to RSVP to.

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.

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.
