August 2019

This month is set with rehearsals beginning for ALL CATHERINE, and the Playground Experiments 100th Volume Fete on the 12th. 

Things have moved nicely for AC, and I have my “To-Do” list with me at all times, this week being the drop off to Equity with my Showcase Application. While it’s extra work, (and extra stress) dealing with my Union, when I’m on the other side of the table, that’s how it goes. In some way though, it makes me proud to be part of an organization that cares so precisely for it’s members. And I am fortunate to have the professional level of work happening in ALL CATHERINE as a result. 

I’m also delving into my long awaited re-start on Lillian Russell, the one person show I did at the Asolo Theatre so long ago, for my MFA performance, only it’s no longer going to be a one person show. I’ve done a lot of research, and will continue, as writing about real people is an investment in history, and that takes time. A caveat however, is the fun that discovery brings! And since it’s set in New York in the late 1890’s, there’s lots to uncover. Fascinating people and time. 

That’s it for me. It’s enough to keep me occupied the entire month!
