So I'm in this Show...

I've never been much of a self-promoter but I'm attempting to turn over a new leaf. In addition to my newly launched and still buggy website , I thought I would announce/invite anyone within the St. Louis area (or beyond should you fancy a vacation) to attend my most recent theatrical endeavor: Medea as presented by the Orangegirls.

If you enjoy Greeks hexing one another, summoning furies and infanticide, this may be the show of the year…at least the summer. It's a modern interpretation of an old classic and so you toga wearing purists may take issue. By no means a light evening of theatre, I will say it’s worth 90 minutes of your time.

It’s playing at Washington University’s A.E. Hotchner Studio Theatre. Here’s a map, but be warned there’s construction and parking may not be obvious.

Website is Launched...well sorta

As I understand it, this world-wide web thing isn't going anywhere soon. Instead of fighting against the wheels of change, I'm embracing this virtual world and doing my best to add to the online clutter.

My hope is that this blog will be a place I can blather on about the art and craft of acting without any real knowledge about whether people are listening. I'll assume they aren't and maybe I'll say something funny if not interesting once in a while. (I'm also working on not being so self-conscious about self promotion, but I suspect that will be harder than putting this site together.)

So I have to send a huge Thanks to Waila who made this site a beauty to behold. I have to take a little credit, but only a little. She's great.
