1) I've accepted the offer from Lost Nation Theater to play Demetrius in their July production of Midsummer Night's Dream. I'm excited to play a crazy young lover in this Shakespeare play about crazy young love. I'm excited to be escaping to Vermont during the sweatiest and most unpleasant time of the year in NYC (I think there will be swimming in Montpelier!). I'm excited to be returning to Lost Nation Theater for the third season in a row, to be around the awesome artistic staff, and the Hartmanns. I'm excited to work with the boys (Eric and Aaron, my Reduced Shakespeare comrades), and to meet and work with many new people as well.
2) Clownorific is in the process of setting me up with a regular hospital shift at Mount Sinai. This will add a small amount of regularity to my freelance schedule in NY. More importantly, I have found clowning in the hospitals to be one of the most fulfilling jobs I've ever done over the past year, while subbing for other clowns at their hospitals.
3) I just had a fantastic writing meeting with Ora. We've decided to expand An Existential Sing Along, a short piece we developed for tinydangerousfun last year, into a full length show. It will involve puppets (Joey, Klaug and Dingo Dave), humans (Ora and Chris), music, movement, and time travel (ish).
Dialect work with private clients has been steady. The People's Circus is coming up on Sunday - I'll be hosting it and performing close up magic before the show. Our Circus will be back to back with the Delicate Flower Burlesque Hour, which I'll also be performing magic in. And then I'll be in tinydangerousfun on Tuesday!
