Light posting lately, which I assume you aren't a bit stickler about. Glee Club was a big success and I'm very proud of the work that was done. I'd like to write a post-mortem about the production when I get the opportunity. I have, though, lept immediately into two new projects and they're taking up my brainspace.
First is Denouement. This is a sort of follow up to Exposition. Our first rehearsal is this evening. Michael Gardner will direct. A short run of public performances will follow our workshop of the piece, at the end of May.
Also, I'll be presenting That Old Soft Shoe at The Too Soon Festival in June. Kyle Ancowtiz directing. I'm currently doing rewrites on the play. All I can say for now is that it takes place in "An undisclosed location. Probably Florida," that its subject is the political ping-pong that our treatment of detainees has become, and that there will be dancing.
