Grimm Late Night

I went to see a production of a musical written by two of my friends, Mark LaPierre and Jodi Eichelberger.  I’d seen it nine years ago in Portland, but this was it’s NYC debut and very exciting. It was as wonderful and witty as I remembered.  Very clever lyrics and an accapela score that’s witty …

Two tech weeks, again?

Hoooooow? How did I manage to schedule tech week for two shows during the same week again? It’s 2:30 am and I feel like I’m going to bed early. That’s a bad sign.

Walking in NYC with taxidermy

If you want to have conversations with your neighbors, a good way to do it is to walk down the street with a cart of taxidermy. They might start conversations with such openers as” “My god!” “What is it?” “Are they real?” “May I touch your dead animal heads?” I’m doing props for Bully Pulpit, …
