Just posted my second entry as a guest blogger — offering more notes on the process of developing my new show, Sea of Reeds – over at 3200 Stories. It’s titled “An Ill Wind,” which should give my mom — and any other Danny Kaye fan — reason to smile. You can read it here.
Just in case you might wish to read more of my neurotic ramblings than can be found in this space, I’ve just started guest-blogging for 3200 Stories, a website run by the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco — where I will be performing my next theater piece, Sea of Reeds, early next year, after premiering it at the Ashby Stage in Berkeley this summer.
They’ve asked me to do occasional reports from inside the process of creating the new show — and I just posted the first one, which can be found here.
By the way, it would be more accurate to say that I will be performing in my next theater piece — as Patrick Dooley, artistic director of the Shotgun Players and commissioner of Sea of Reeds, has challenged me (and my longtime director and collaborator, David Dower) to include other performers onstage. You know, as in a “play.” A weird concept for a longtime monologuist like me to grok, but I’m getting there!
