So. Summer is trucking along in Rochester, as are several projects! 'Mammoth' and MuCCC-fest went off without a hitch, and when the timing is right I look forward to the next round of edits and rewrites on that piece (one day I'll be satisfied with it, one day). But for now, time to keep looking ahead to upcoming ventures! Currently I am finishing up a working script for 'The Nameless Days of Gumdrop Smith' for the Rochester Fringe Festival, more news to come with that later this month.
Beyond that, the big creative news is that later this summer I will begin collaborating with my very multi-talented friend Mr. Alec Powell in composing an original musical based on my play 'The Weekends' which saw a reading this past February. It will be a tongue-in-cheek, modern, and above all, honest representation about what it means to be a millennial. After February's reading, I knew the play needed something, but couldn't figure out what it was until Alec approached me about writing a musical with him. Suddenly it all clicked! I'm no stranger to writing lyrics (though a bit rusty, as I haven't written new music in over five years) but I cannot wait to get underway and keep you all updated with that project.
Happy summer! Stay tuned!
All the best,
PS. You should all go see the film 'Obvious Child.' I saw it last night and I want to watch it every day forever.
