Tiny Theater in Brooklyn This Weekend

New York continues to treat me well. I'll be going to grad school in the Fall as part of the first MFA playwriting class at Hunter College, taught by Tina Howe.

After having quite a few 1-minute plays produced at various festivals around NYC the last few years, I now have a 10-minute play going up this weekend! It's at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn, and the festival is called Tiny Theater. You can learn more here.  It apparently sells out each year, so you may want to buy tickets ahead of time. (If you use code LISTDISC at the checkout, the price drops from $18 to $15.)

I'm also in pre-production for my web series. We start shooting this weekend and go into early June. I'm so lucky to have so many talented actors: Josh Barrett of HBO's Generation Kill, Jeffrey Cranor and Eevin Hartsough of the NY Neofuturists, James Meredith of Steppenwolf Theatre, and Kelley Rae O'Donnell of LAByrinth Theater. You can see the first episode on my YouTube channel.

If you've ever wanted to hear me sing a hymn...

So I'm working from home today, and it's a light day, and so I'm taking some time to tidy up my iPhone, netbook, iMac, and iTunes, which have been all randomly used at various points for various things and were not very coordinated. (Actually today is the first day I've ever synced my entire music library to my iPhone.)

I came across several voice memos I used with the iTalk app last August. I found recordings of the leaks in my kitchen from my last apartment, ambient sounds in the subway, and me singing hymns when I had insomnia.
