SUMMER IN VENICE! FALL TOUR!
Here I am learning to swim from my mom when I was 4 years old in Phoenix, Arizona! One of life's sustaining pleasures!
I hope you are having a good summer. I am here in LA having a Venice Beach breather in August before my busy Fall Tour starts in September with performances and workshop residencies at the Lied Center for the Performing Arts at University of Nebraska, San Diego at Masonic Hall-Claire de Lune, SMU, Davidson College, Wake Forest University, Cal State University Northridge and Salem State University. The two week residency at the Lied Center for the Performing Arts will be really exciting. I will be making a piece with the University of Nebraska students and performing two of my solo shows US and GLORY BOX.
Speaking of GLORY BOX...here is a new YOUTUBE performance excerpt I just put up from that show. Check it out.
I had a blast in London this summer with my run of 1001 BEDS. My shows went really well. Here's nice big interview piece in Time Out for my London performances at the Drill Hall.
1001 BEDS won the US gay literary prize for best Drama-Theater book from the Lambda Literary Foundation. That was nice.
To pull myself away from Venice Beach for a few days, I had a really great July gig of 1001 BEDS in Palm Springs. It was 110 degrees! Got HEAPS of press in the daily paper the Desert Sun...big cover story
& the gay paper The Bottom Line
I will be seeing many of you soon in Dallas or North Carolina or Boston or Nebraska or San Diego! Meanwhile my garden is going crazy. I have a peach tree that is exploding!
