Hello all. It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to post an update for the site. The irony is that it’s because of how incredibly busy I’ve been lately. First of all, God of Carnage rehearsals are in full swing. I have a fantastic cast that I’m working with that is 100% on the ball. Things are shaping up very nicely at the moment and I’m already excited to get this production in front of an audience. We open on September 19th, with a Pay What You Can preview on the 18th. Make sure to check out my Calendar to reserve your dates.
But before God of Carnage goes up, I’m happy to announce that I will be directing a staged reading that goes live this Labor Day. The play is called Cosmetic Consciousness and is written by my good friend Kristy Simmons. We will be performing it as part of the Page to Stage Festival at the Kennedy Center on September 1st from 3-5. Again, more details are at my Calendar.
But that’s not the only staged reading coming up. On September 28th I will be directing a staged reading for Molotov Theatre Group called Gallery. This is a pretty awesome play involving Batman’s Rogues Gallery during an Arkham breakout. The Joker, Two Face, The Riddler, The Scarecrow and Poison Ivy are all involved and verbally joust with each other while trying to solve the mystery as to who orchestrated the breakout. We’re going to be doing this up right in connection with Phantom Comics in DC, so make sure you don’t miss this one-night-only showing. Details are once again at my Calendar.
Finally, I’m happy to say that tonight is audition night for the Hope Operas. I will be directing a new play for 1Up Theatre called The Scottish Detective and we will be performing it all throughout the month of October. For pity’s sake, just check out my Calendar already.
