My October 2018 Wrap-Up!

 

October was one hell of a month!

The forecast is looking really Sunny for The Big Event!

First off, we opened Sunny Afternoon, King Dick, and …Meantime at HoJo’s (collectively known as The Big Event) to RAVE reviews (EDIT: check out what people are saying here, here, and here).

In case you missed it…

I know I’ve been pretty subtle about this news, but I signed with new representation last month! I’m now working with the team at Maxx Management, and I have to say, so far, so good! I really like the team over there, and they’ve already gotten me out on a few auditions. I hope this is the start of a long and productive working collaboration.

SHOOK and LOCK & KEY

Shot two short films last month! One I also wrote/produced (Shook, embedded below). The other was a student film at USC where I played a High School Volleyball coach being interrogated by police detectives after a student’s murder. As soon as I have that footage, I’ll be more than happy to post it.

Just one more thing…

You know the last line in my bio? The one where I say I nurture an unhealthy obsession with the Boston Red Sox? Well, if you’ve been living under a rock for the last ten days, GUESS WHO WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!

And you know what else?

I was there when they did it.

Look Ma! I’m at the World Series!

Achievement Unlocked.

So What’s Next?

Well, November brings a full plate of stuff. As I mentioned before, Maxx Management has wasted no time in getting me out on auditions, which is wonderful.

The runs of Sunny Afternoon and The Big Event continue. But they will soon be continuing on without me. It’s been a blast collaborating with Gangbusters Theatre Company and portraying Det. Richard “Dick” Sims in this incredible romp through history! My only regret is that I have to depart the run after November 18th. So, catch me while you still can!

In addition to any projects I may book, I’m shooting another new scene I wrote, with a couple of friends at the end of the month, so keep an eye out for when that drops. It’ll be a little shorter than Shook, but not quite as sweet.

Next week, I start work on my next two lighting design projects, Annie Jr. and High School Musical at Gray Studios in NoHo.

Also, Theatre Unleashed is currently rehearsing our annual holiday production of It’s a Wonderful Life: The Radio Play! The gang from KAWL Los Angeles returns to The Belfry Stage in December for more holiday hijinks. This year, however, we’re also making a special invited appearance down at The Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton on December 9th! This performance will benefit Theatre Unleashed and help us fund our upcoming production of Lauren Gunderson’s Ada and the  Engine at studio/stage in March.

Hey Greg, are you ever going to finish the new Theatre Unleashed website?

Yes.

…When?

Soon.

But-

Hey, I updated the current one-page site. Isn’t that enough for you?

For now, I guess…

Good.

How about new episodes of What We Do When We’re Dark?

Ooh. You just want to throw me into a full-blown depression don’t you, Disembodied-big-font-narrator-asking-questions-no-one-else-cares-about?

Um… no. Sorry if this is a sensitive topi-

No it’s fine. ::huffs:: Jenn and I put out a call for college interns back in September to help us with What We Do When We’re Dark, and a new podcast we want to launch called This Is #LAThtr in exchange for course credit.

So what happened?

No candidates applied this semester.

Oh. So-

-So we’re going to try again next semester.

But hey, I finished a new website for StageCrafts. So there’s that.

Oh. Cool. It looks good.

Yeah.

… anything else?

… How’s your writing coming along?

I’m out.

Onward and upward.
