The Amazing Arnie at THE MILKY WAY CABARET

One of my favorite actors, Jeff Swearingen, transforms himself into "Amazing Arnie" in my play, THE MILKY WAY CABARET, opening in Dallas on November 12th.

Jeff Swearingen as "The Amazing Arnie"

I am very excited about this production, and thrilled to see what other kinds of magic Audacity Theatre Lab brings to the party.

Tickets, by the way, are NOW on sale.

On Wednesday, October 7th, my potlatch/roadtrip project, THE TRAVEL PLAYS will begin a journey through a four-day, ten-hour workshop/discovery process with Boomerang Theatre Company in New York City.

The project, 37 different plays written for 37 different friends (taking place in 37 different locations), will be explored by six different directors leading six different creative teams. Each team will work on 6-7 plays, exploring/exploding these works with one leading maxim-- be as imaginative and as creative as possible. And have a fucking blast!

The work will culminate in a group-sharing event, open to the public on Saturday, October 10th at 5:00 pm. (if you are reading this and in the NYC area, I would LOVE to see you there!)

I am thrilled to continue working on this project, as it continues the multi-layered gift-exchange between me, my friends, and my work. I am excited to meet a large group (six directors, over 20 actors) of mostly new collaborators and to continue to make exciting theatrical discoveries about these plays and about live performance in general.

Big thank yous to Tim Errickson, Artistic Director of Boomerang, for his interest in this project, and for organizing and producing the event.

Rehearsals and Press Coverage Begin for MILKY WAY

This week, THE MILKY WAY CABARET began rehearsals for Audacity Theatre Lab's November production of the play. Director Brad McEntire tells me things are off to a good start, and that the group is already having a good time diving into the work.

The show also gets a mention by Dallas/Fort-Worth area arts writer Mark Lowry in the popular theater site, Theater Jones. Lowry also links the production's "trailer", which I freaking love.

For more information on the Nov 11-21 production in Dallas, you can visit the online home of Audacity Theatre Lab.

Big thank yous to Brad and Mark for their work.
