When I was a kid, everyone I met was obsessed with my red hair. Mom would often put me in that friggin' green that is supposed to look so good on the poor ginger-locked ones. I hated it. I wanted to wear MAROON... and PURPLE. She steered me back to green. Hunter green, kelly green, teal green. Once she knit me a BLUE sweater, but by the time she finished it, it was too small...
At least she had no problem with my black converse high-tops.
In more pressing news!
I just got back from "World Domination Summit" (I know, everyone hates the name) in Portland, OR. It was the debut screening of Jen Lee's documentary, "Indie Kindred." It is a BEAUTIFUL, tender film about indepencence, creativity, collaboration... And It features me and some extraordinary artists...Liz Kalloch, Christine Mason Miller, Liz Lamoreux, Kelly Barton, Jolie Guillebeau, and Winterbloom. Click the link below to see the trailer and find screenings near you. Jen's taking it on the road this summer!!!
In other news: I'll be in Ithaca, New York from July 23 through the 30th work-shopping another musical I've been working on with Anton Dudley (my crazy gifted playwright friend.) It's called "Death & Venice," (ok, it's not a comedy) information about that, HERE:HANGAR THEATRE: DEATH & VENICE!!! (and p.s. I'm not IN IT, I just wrote the SONGS!)
Then, on to the Playwright's Center in Minneapolis August 12 - 18. (so very exciting) A full week fleshing out production and work-shopping "My Mother Has Four Noses." There will be three performances at the end of that week. They are free, but tickets are limited. Reserve your seats HERE: PLAYWRIGHT'S CENTER 4 NOSES!!!!
