I Spent The Evening With The Radio
Yes, yes, I know. Nine entire days without posting. Things have been - mercifully - quiet recently whilst my wounds heal.
The on-again-off-again saga of the show I proposed to the theatre is now - on. Again. After a bit of negotiating for time and schedule-juggling on the playwright's part, not to mention a very productive telephone conference last Friday, the Company has agreed to give me my original slot in the fall.
Which means, I've got a show after all.
Which also means, I have to start scaring up designers ASAP, although I have already talked to a few people in the interim, you know, just in case.
It wasn't an easy decision for some folks, understandably so. Nobody wanted to yank the slot out from under the person who'd been given it in my stead, even though they still get to produce their show (albeit as a late-night, rather than a "primetime"), and having just gone through the experience of having my own show yanked, I can completely sympathize. But in the end, enthusiasm won out over any residual guilt.
But, I still feel like I owe someone an apology for putting them through this, even inadvertantly, because I know full-well it has to be something of a disappointment - and who can blame them?
So, that little episode is put to rest.
In other news, unbelievably, I received yet ANOTHER jury summons yesterday - this time from the County Superior Court. I guess once you answer the call, everybody else considers you fair game. I mean, I've lived in Seattle/King County for coming on 28 years now, and had never ever received a jury summons - now I get two in two months?
And finally the weather has begun to approach something vaguely resembling summer-like conditions. Sunday was absolutely marvelous, felt much warmer than upper 60's, and I spent most of the day hitting farmers markets and street fairs with my friend El Vee, then had gut-busting burgers at Lunchbox Laboratory.
Finished off the day at my neighborhood movie joint watching a feature-length edit of a made-for-internet series created and produced by some friends.
So, all-in-all not a bad weekend, and a promising start to the week.
Now, I'm off for a quick bite of dinner, then first rehearsals for the new show.
