Conversing Quarterly

Conversing Quarterly
​About two weeks ago, I got to sit down with some of my fellow Managing and Executive Directors in the Los Angeles theatre community and talk shop. We met at Sacred Fools at 10am on a Saturday morning (an ungodly hour by theatre people standards). Girded with coffee and bagels, we discussed non-profit administration, tax laws, g...

Gone Writin'

Gone Writin'
​I'm headed off to Frazier Park this afternoon with members of Theatre Unleashed's Writers Den. We're taking a weekend away from the world in a really nice vacation home, and writing. I've got four separate script ideas I want to work on and start fleshing out (including cranking out a third draft of The Young Argonauts). There's wifi at the h...

That's a wrap on "Today"!

That's a wrap on "Today"!
Yeah, that's me lurking in the shadows.

Big thanks to Jim for inviting me to direct this project, Bobby McGlynn for being a one-man wrecking crew...

Indulging in my favorite pastime.

Indulging in my favorite pastime.
​Had the pleasure of taking in a couple of baseball games over the past two weeks. Caught the final Angels/Sox game of the four-game series (thank you Brett and Erin for the tickets!) and watched my boys make a magical comeback. Scored five runs to overcome a 3-0 deficit in the top of the ninth with two outs and two strikes. Pedroia took Husto...

The Latest news from The Argo

The Latest news from The Argo
​It's a miracle what deadlines can do for a busy person. Last Sunday, I messaged a bunch of my friends and asked them to come and do a reading of The Young Argonauts - the new play Mike and I are developing. There was one little loose end, though - I only had two-thirds of a second draft done when I put out the invite. So, after some serious c...

​If you know anything about me, then you know I spend a lot of time in my car waiting for people. I try to use that time productively, whether by reading, running lines or even writing. But it's tough to do all of that stuff while the car is actually, y'know, in motion. So, what do I do to keep my mind from wandering to dark places when I'm al...

HFF 16 Wrap-Up
Wow, it's been a week since the seventh annual Hollywood Fringe Festival closed. I've barely had time to catch my breath. This year's festival was unusual for me, as I wasn't able to be around for much of it. Whether it was a trip out of town, or events outside the purview of the festival that I had to attend, I wasn't able to run up and down Theat...
