I Gotta Get Out And Get Me Some Of Those Rays
My, how time flies and all. I thought it had only been a couple of days since my last post, but here it is a full week gone by instead.
So, let's see, what's new? Well, we spent yesterday afternoon at the theatre hashing out our next season, which is always an interesting process: basically, we lock ourselves in a room and don't come out again until everyone agrees on the shows we're going to produce. This is very different than how most companies select their seasons, I expect, but then again, we've been a consensus-driven collective for so long, we've got the process down cold. This year, there wasn't a great deal of controversy, so we managed to get in and get out in under 2 1/2 hours.
Official announcement will be forthcoming, but it's shaping up to be an interesting and eclectic slate of shows.
The only other item of note is that, apparently the warm dry weather followed me up from Arizona last weekend, because it's become increasingly, not to mention unseasonably hot up here, with temps expected to hit the mid-80's for most of this week, and stick around through the weekend at least. This is about a month earlier than the norm (we joke about it, but it's been pretty reliable in that our summer "officially" starts right around the 4th of July). I haven't heard any complaints so far, and considering what a miserable winter we had, I wouldn't expect any, but we can be a fickle lot up here, and four or five days of hot weather is enough to send SOME people into a curmudgeonly state.
Oh, one other thing. I've started on a first draft of a play. It's an idea I've had kicking around in my head for several years, but only literally came up with a suitable framing device for the piece a couple of days ago. So, I'm going to try to crank out something reasonably coherent in the next several weeks, then see what I can do with regards to getting it read and making some revisions. Not going to jinx things by revealing too much here, but will say it's based on one of my favorite subjects, and leave it at that for now.
