Bad blogger

Sorry I missed writing for all of February. Work at AASD has been a little crazy as we prepared for one of our biggest programs, the All City Auditions. They were produced successfully March 8 & 9, and I got the opportunity to premiere 2 new audition pieces to a very good crowd of more than 50 local directors. San Diego is so lucky to have such a great organization, if I do say so myself.

Tomorrow morning, I am headed to Los Angeles to audition for "Palm Beach," a musical being produced by La Jolla Playhouse this summer. LJP has increasing sought local actors to fill their productions, and I am thrilled to represent San Diego's talent at Screenland Studios tomorrow. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.

I just learned that a piece I had submitted to the Actors Alliance Festival has been accepted for production. I, as the producer and director, will have an opportunity to present a beautiful play to San Diego audiences and have complete artistic control. Have I gone insane? All joking aside, this is a huge responsibility and I am thrilled to start this adventure. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

I will also be acting in the Festival. Jim Ellis, a local playwright and fellow AASD member, approached me about an idea for a play after he saw my performance in "The Last Five Years" and heard about my personal relationship woes: Would I be willing to help him develop a show that addresses what happens after a break up- how does one put the pieces back together and reclaim that part of the self that was lost? I said yes. He has since interviewed me and written a beautiful piece that addresses love, loss, hope and fear. I look forward to working on it in the months to come- and hope that you can come out to see it!
