Festivus for the Restuvus

I admit, I am a boredom blogger. When I am bored, I blog and blog and blog like there’s no tomorrow. But when things are great, I am out doing other... well, great things.

One of those great things was appearing in the most beautiful reading of the play, Avow“ (which I’ve mentioned in a previous post.) I got involved with this play when a dear friend contacted me and asked if I could recommend an actor for a reading being done of the play. I recommended a very talented actor I knew, who they ended up loving and casting in the role. Several weeks later, they lost their lead female actor, so they asked me if I was interested in reading for the role. I read the play, and could not believe how perfect the role was for me. So when I was officially asked to take on the role, I was ecstatic.

This past Monday and Tuesday we did the reading and as the director/producer promised, the audiences were captivated. As promised, with only 4 rehearsals we gave such a polished performance that the scripts almost disappeared (because, though we were holding our scripts, we had our eyes off the page enough that we were able to REALLY connect with our scene partners. It felt so good to develop such a strong character- and I was reawakened to what is possible in the theater. The hope is that we can find a way to built a production company around the show and tour the country, but that will take lots and lots of money. Do you have lots and lots of money for our show? =)

I also got some good news about a film I shot earlier this year. ”Tom and Jeraldine“ was made an official selection of the Big Apple Film Festival, which is running in mid November in, you guessed it, New York City. This is the first time a film that I have starred in is being screened at a festival, and I am thrilled! I am also excited because the screening makes the film eligible to be placed on IMDB. I’ll be sure to update you when that happens.

Hopefully faster than these last updates...

  1. Are you going to go to the screening? Seems to me that would be a lot of fun.
