Bio? Nada.

the problem with my local organic supermarket is that you have to be a millionaire hippy in order to buy lamb there.

tribeca was cool. someone told us they were shocked cuz our talk-back was actually entertaining. i didn’t few the film but i heard it looked and sounded amazing in their theater.

i’m still trying to come to terms with the fact that this crazy little thing me Heidi and Annie cooked up just for the hell of it is actually going to live on as part of the PBS canon. I really cannot wrap my head around that yet. PBS changed my life a number of times as a teen – for instance, – like or not Robert Hughes’ politics, his “Shock of the New” series was a watershed moment for me as a kid who wanted to be an artist for life. That doc made art making seem heroic, suspenseful, important and downright necessary. After seeing it I went out and bought a canvas, some oil paints and tried to be Munch for a few months until a painting I made looked so much like a guitar (and a woman) that I realized where I should be hanging my focus. And there it has remained.

And so the idea that PS is going to be there for some unsuspecting teen (so that she may realize that shes not alone in thinking that there’s gotta me more to life than what she’s been handed by her community) and some equally unsuspecting Mom (who will see that we who run away with the circus do eventually get it, albeit too late sometimes)…is just all quite alot to fathom for a singer in a rock and roll band.

    A Little Night Music is going back to Broadway and I think you should play Desiree Armfeldt. Or, if not Desiree, at least Frederik.

    PS definitely made me think about my little life and my place in this big world that I grew up knowing almost nothing about when I saw it as a 17-year-old last year. It’s one of a few great pieces of theatre that really have done that. Went back to see the final performance, which was such an awesome, crazy experience. Good to know that it’ll be out there for other kids (and for me to watch again and again). Kids watch PBS, right?

    I just bought the soundtrack for Passing Strange. It’s great. I can’t wait to see in what context the songs fit. When will the show be on PBS? I like how old fav’s like The Drug Suite and Come Down Now work in the story line or was the story written long ago? I’m a big Stew, Heidi and TNP fan. Please visit LA soon and play some gigs.

    I love the idea of PS on PBS, too. And very glad to see you cite “Shock of the New” as a profound influence. It was for me as well.
