Play List

Mini play list for you all riffing of the song obsessions post. So, of course (again) This and this. Here are a couple of other songs that I was feeling when I wrote i stole lance armstrong’s bike:  Wild Horses – this is not the original, but I like her voice and that drifty, far-off quality…

The Man Who Sold The World

I have song obsessions. This is one of them. This song relates to i stole lance armstrong’s bike in that it was the impetus for the whole play. I will share that next, but first, a really long digression…  I warned you. Of course, I felt tremendously sad to hear the news of David Bowie. A…

The Real World – Theater Edition: An Interview with Libby Emmons

Recent interview with Libby Emmons for SF Theater Pub was way cool. Loved hearing her perspective on art-making and not “asking permission”.  And it’s so true! We do ask permission all the time to do art. Why? Isn’t that somewhat the point of art (possibly) to not ask permission? I remember something Rob Handel told…

the bike play

There’s this play I wrote about two girls that steal Lance Armstrong’s bike while he’s doing the Tour of California. Just a crime of opportunity, you know. So they go on this road trip to get rid of it, but end up being in over their heads. They post about it online and become internet-famous….

Punk As Fuck – reading on 1/12 at the Gallery Cafe in SF

Super lucky to be selected as a guinea pig for Custom Made Theatre‘s new plays development program.

Acoustic Set

So I’m thinking of this new portion of my blog like my little regular acoustic set. it’s just stuff i’ve been working on– no big deal. No accolades needed. In fact, you gotta imagine me like in this cafe or bar that’s kinda hard to get to and maybe just the regular locals come out…

Scene from a play – the punk play

I thought I’d start off a little something different. This is a scene from a play I wrote called Punk As Fuck. It’s about the punk scene and three different generations coming together on one night. A little bit about it – I originally wrote it for Just Theater’s New Play Lab over 2014 and the…

Looking Ahead

So I’ve been sharing this interview that I did with Stuart Bousel of San Francisco Theater Pub (among other Bay Area theater companies and capacities) because something Stuart said resonated with me as I think of the Bay Area theater scene, and also other scenes and communities.  What will save theater in the Bay Area…

Theater Around The Bay: Save the Empire

Originally posted on San Francisco Theater Pub:
Stuart Bousel, subbing for Barbara Jwanouskos. Is it just me or does the week after Labor Day always kind of suck? It didn’t in school. But that’s because the week after Labor Day was really the week things started to kick into gear, whether you had started classes…
