My friend Brandie is a talented author, playwright, and librettist (and a burgeoning theatre producer). So, when I saw her post that she was doing a signing at Comic Con this weekend, I wasn’t surprised. What caught me off guard was that this signing wasn’t for her YA Fantasy duology, Gold Spun. Instead it was for a project I hadn’t heard about: a trio of graphic novel anthologies titled “Cthulhu is Hard to Spell.”
Actor • Playwright • Designer • Producer • Director • Game Master
Alright! It’s 2pm on Wednesday. I’m sitting in the bar at the Marriott Downtown. Preview Night begins in just a few hours. I drove down to San Diego from Los Angeles this morning and arrived a little while ago. My jacket is pressed, my go bag is loaded, my knee is taped up (after spraining it two and a half weeks ago), and I’m ready to mix and mingle with my fellow industry folks.
Let me start this off by stating that I am not a member of the WGA. I’m an actor and a member of SAG-AFTRA, Actors Equity, and the Dramatists Guild. I’ve seen a lot of posts about What Actors Should Do During the #WGAstrike. Erica S. Bream and The Casting Directors Cut both put out great guides back in May. And I love them! But there was one thing that bothered me about those guides.
If you haven’t been following my Instagram, or checked out Dime Store Detective Stories at the Hollywood Fringe Festival website, you may not have seen some of these gorgeous photos of our first episode, taken by Matt Kamimura!
The Hollywood Fringe Festival is almost upon us! From June 8th to June 25th, over two hundred and fifty individual productions will be going up at venues across Hollywood.
Nothing like a monthly check-in to keep me accountable and on task! Here’s what I accomplished in March and April, and what I’m planning on doing between now and next month!
Just got back to LA after spending another lovely weekend up in Pine Mountain Club. I love our quarterly Theatre Unleashed Writers’ Den Writing Retreats. It’s so nice to get out of town for a few days, leave all of our normal routine concerns behind, and focus exclusively on creation.
While working on Carrie: The Musical Horror last year at Boston Court Pasadena for Sequoyah School, I connected with the President of Conundrum Theatre Company, Lisa Sedares. Lisa and I hit it off pretty quickly, and before I knew it, she’d hired me to design her company’s upcoming production of Seussical the Musical.
Happy Opening Day to those who celebrate, and Let’s Go Red Sox! In honor of the occasion, I’m offering two of my ten-minute plays, The Boys of Spring And Fall and Pink Hat Blues for free today only on Amazon.
It’s that time again! Here’s what I accomplished over the last month, and what I’m planning on accomplishing over the next few weeks. Grateful for my Career Accountability Group and my Accountability Partner to help keep me on track. Let’s go!
