I had a moment today when I realized that I need to stop complicating everything. I always want everything to go off smoothly but if I am in my own way, I just slow everything down. Since the last week, which now includes a second loss, I am seeing just how important it is that we live our lives to the fullest. As a champion of dreams and goals, I encourage all of you, as well as myself, to set a goal for the next month and do one thing each day to make that goal a reality. You have 30 days…GO! I’m checking in to see where you all are in the process.
If you haven’t checked out The Left Out Festival, today is your last chance. Antonio and Shylock close out the festival and I am very excited to see it tonight. It’s a work in progress based on Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice by Dikran Tulaine, this exploration of hatred of the “other” explores anti-Jewish and anti-gay bigotry. Was Antonio gay? Hmm, I’ll love to dig deep. Also, fellow poet, and rocker, Alan Sermerdjian is performing this weekend at the Rockwood Music Hall. And if you’re in the mood for an oldie but a goody, check out my pal, Tom Hoefner’s You’re a Good Man. Charlie Brown. Tom wrote and directed, The Unlikely Adventure of Race McCloud, Private Eye which Black Henna produced a few years ago.
I am about to head into Planet Connections with three great shows: Pieces, The Quest of the Hero! and Allie’s Appendix. Check out the listings to the right and www.theatrebeyondbroadway.com for more info. Pieces has two more added dates so YAY!
See you at the show!
You have a follower the moment you put the anarchy sign in my path. So when I heard The Anthem was opening, my interest was piqued.
Your name will be drawn from my cauldron if you tell me what show has a kick ass poster/logo/brand. You win two tickets to:
THE ANTHEM is a rollicking sci-fi musical about a revolt of the young against an evil state lovingly inspired by the classic novella “Anthem.” Hunger Games meets Ayn Rand in a world where individuality is illegal. Prometheus abandons everything to confront the State — controlled by the overlord of evil efficiency, Tiberius. With a forbidden copy of Ayn Rand’s ancient tome in hand, can Prometheus overthrow the system?
