New Play Exchange Launches Tomorrow, Plus Small Personal Update

I’ve said it before – I’m a huge proponent of new plays. Since 2011, I’ve been lucky enough to spend at least 90% of my theatre time in any given year devoted to developing new plays. While I think it is endlessly important to understand our theatre history and continue to read old plays, I […]

Artistic Freedom Vs. Artistic Responsibility Forum – Neutral is as Neutral Does

About a week ago, on Monday, August 19th, I attended a forum for theatre artists, other artists, and the community called the Forum for Artistic Freedom vs. Artistic Responsibility. There’s lots of good write-ups about the discussion, including: Mikado, yellowface debate at Seattle Repertory Theatre forum All the coverage of “Mikado, yellowface” in the news […]

Week Round-Up of Director’s Lab West 2014

You know how I said I would do daily write-ups of my experiences at Director’s Lab West? There’s something about 12-hour days that makes that easy to punk out on. Anyway, here’s the roundup, based on my notes taken in a notebook provided by DLW. Swag! We got swag for the 15th anniversary. Yeah! 5/18/14 […]

Director’s Lab West, Fifteenth Anniversary Edition: Day One

Since I haven’t been too active on my blog for awhile, and I’m actually doing something really interesting and different for me, I thought I’d try to do daily write-ups for DLW this year. Problem is, several nights I will be back to my lodging somewhere between 11 and midnight. Oh well. The first day […]

Oh wait, what? I have a blog. That’s right, I remember now.

Since I posted in March about my excitement to go to Director’s Lab West 2014, I have remained quiet. What’s that crap about? Seriously. Well, the big note is depression. Until this past Monday, I had no theatre plans after DLW, and that always makes me antsy. Once “Mr. Pim Passes By” opened in January, […]

I’M GOING TO DIRECTOR’S LAB WEST, BEYOTCH

I know I haven’t posted in awhile. Mainly, I’ve been fighting career-related depression (and some other kinds of depression. Yay!). I’d like to say I haven’t posted due to being busy, but that isn’t entirely true. But now I have something to write about! I got accepted to Director’s Lab West 2014! It’s their 15th […]

Obama Calls for an End to the Shutdown

Today, Obama ┬ácalled for Boehner to end the government shutdown so Congress could finish discussions about the debt ceiling and the budget. While there’s been no response from the Tea Party, this could signal the beginning of the end of the government shutdown. Unfortunately, it is not actually the end. Fortunately, several organizations – from […]

Two Massive Seattle Arts Events

It’s time, everyone! It’s fall, officially, and we’ve watched the end-of-summer celebrations – Bumbershoot and PAX – come and go. That means that indoor arts events will be all the rage for the next two months. Two big ones that I’m looking forward to are the Seattle Fringe Festival (September 18-22) and ArtsCrush (the month […]
