I Should Be Sleeping Like A Log

Busy weekend. Saturday spent the afternoon helping to build the set for Annex Theatre's next production, An American Book Of The Dead - The Gameshow!, and then ran sound for Wreckage in the evening. Fortunately, both were in the same location, so that was convenient.

Wreckage is going very well; we've had gushingly positive reviews for the most part (The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Joe Adcock giving us the sole pan so far, but given his general penchant for Philistinism, not a big surprise), and sold-out houses for most of the run.

It's been a fascinating experience, watching a performer mold and evolve a show from night-to-night, and I'm continually picking up little nuances of Lauren's performance; how certain character's body language changes subtly over time, how she plays with vocal inflections to glean moments of humor or insight, and how committed she is to not just doing a good show, but to fully exploring all the various facets of the performance, some of which, given the extremely personal nature of the material must be very uncomfortable to depict onstage in front of a bunch of strangers. But, she's up there doing what all truly gifted performers constantly attempt: to expose something about human nature -- and themselves -- to the audience, as opposed to submerging their ego beneath the facade of the character they're portraying.

Sunday turned out to be a massive, all day theatre binge: Started out the morning helping to load-out ABOTD for transport to the performance space, then since I had a Wreckage matinee, I stayed behind and cleaned the rehearsal/shop space we've been using in the back of Union Garage, where Lauren's show is performing. Finished just in time to to the show, then followed that up by running lights and sound for a workshop reading by another local solo performer of note, Maria Glanz. After that, helped the Babylonians pack up the detritus from the weekend garage sale fundraiser they'd been holding in the parking lot next to the theatre. Then, it was off to North Seattle to pick up some serving items for tonight's Equity Membership Meeting, and the day was capped off by a quick stop in to check on the Annex folk at the ABOTD performance space.

And I was worried that joining Actors' Equity would severely reduce my theatre-related activities!

On another front, with the apparent demise of, I've approached a few other websites about writing for them, and it looks like I'll be joining the staffs of Three Imaginary Girls and Aisle Say sometime around the first of next month. So, now I'll be writing for TWO online publications with a significantly increased readership on both a regional and national level! Of course, none of this pays anything, but it's still great exposure, and perhaps could lead to even bigger and better things, who knows?

Tomorrow, I get to take a sneak peak at Paul Allen's latest money pit, The Science Fiction Museum And Hall Of Fame. Hopefully, they'll let me take pictures.
