Yesterday, I was lucky enough to spend a good portion of the day thanking people who helped to make InViolet InRed possible, in particular, our amazing Host Committee: Raul Castillo, Laura Eason, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Scott Hudson, Padraic Lillis, Charles (Chuck) Mee, Arian Moayed, Jose Rivera, and Annabella Sciorra. That this amazing collection of artists was willing to serve in this capacity says much more about them, than it does about InViolet Rep. But it also says something about our members. Our company engenders support because the individuals who make up our company have heart and brains and talent. And that is visible to others as well. How lucky am I to be able to thank people like that for helping us along our journey.
And I wrote yesterday. Always a victory no matter how brief or successfull.
Today is already a good day too. Have a phone interview with a potential director for InViolet’s spring show, so I’ve been stalking her on the internet. So very cool (and a little scary) that you can find so much out. It’s been great tracking the progress in her career. She gives great internet. Excited to talk to her by phone.
And as if that weren’t enough, OnStage Atlanta has auditions tonight for my play CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITIES, a new fifty minute version for the Atlanta Fringe. InViolet work-shopped this last year with bad ass Padraic Lillis as the director. It was amazingly fun. I think this shortened version is actually a stronger script, but we’ll see.
One actor I hoped that would audition can’t, and an actor that did a reading of it with Process Theatre Company (also in Atlanta) has booked another gig, so I’m a little nervous about finding the lead, TIM TIM – but that’s part of the fun too. Right? God I hope so.
More updates to come.
