Playing in TheatreWork’s New Works Festival

Okay, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover so let’s jump right in! Chairs. Stands. Lights. And voice. If you’ve been following this blog for some time you’ll know that I do my best to promote new work on stage. And new work often comes in various forms, and one of them are stage…

To Bench or not to Bench

TO BENCH! No question. A three performance weekend w h o o s h e d by faster than a Felix Baumgartner could re-enter the atmosphere. Alright, maybe not that fast but dammit, time flies when you’re having fun and the Bench Project II was over before I knew it. I was just starting to…

What is cue to cue?

Or in short, Q2Q. And according to Wikipedia (hah):  A cue-to-cue is when the sound and lights are run with certain parts of scenes within the production. Usually a scene will start with the first few lines and then skip to the lines and staged blocking for the next cue. This whole process can take many…

Ain’t nobody got time for that

Sweet Brown will tell you, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” Those were the guiding words during our rehearsal for The Lookout.

I’m not sure how I managed that but I won’t question the good fortune! You might be asking yourself, “Bench Projects…that sounds familiar…where have I heard it before?”. It’s because…

Filming in the theater

No no, I didn’t go and do some video pirating. I spent a few hours yesterday filming the interview portion of what will end up in the New Play Development Factory promotional video. If you’re into theatre AND the process of taking something from page to stage (thanks for that phrase Cara), then stage/developmental readings are…

Don’t mind the roundhouse

March. I can’t say enough about this month. Or maybe there’s just too much to say about this month that I’m immediately overwhelmed when I decide to write about it –hmm. Food for thought. This past weekend tossed me in the arms of several neat projects. Adobe Youth Voices camp. I can’t say enough about…
