first five show weekend and the best television ever…

i dig these five show weekends…ok, i’ve only done one…but i like how much yer forced to learn about the piece by doing it so many times in such a small span of time… offday: rodewald and i went to sausilito and hung forever at a really cool italian cafe that looked like it would […]

in the middle of it…

three shows into my first 5 show weekend and i’m feeling energized by the jam-packedness of it all…doing a matinee really puts a nice edge on the late show… we, the cast/band, took a cool step forward last night… nice seeing the amazing composer brian woodbury at our saturday matinee. he flew in just for […]

a tough day for scorpios

HR and I went to saul’s deli (the matzoh ball soup will make you stop waiting for the messiah) then escaped to Tilden Park and […]
