Great talk this morning with another guy who runs a theatre in the area. It can be really refreshing and inspiring to trade thoughts and stories with peers that you don’t get to talk with often enough.
Very full houses all this weekend for the final performances of This Wonderful Life! A few tickets left, and it’s looking like we’ll sell those – yay!
The workshop we just had for the next play I’m directing, It Came From Mars, was a ton of fun. I’m directing the show at the Performance Network Theatre in Ann Arbor, and after a run there it’ll move to the Williamston Theatre where we’ll run it for a short 3 weeks of performances. The show is very funny, and I can’t wait to get started on it with the cast, production team and playwright!
Tonight when I got home I went in and kissed the kids, who were already fast asleep. As I re-tucked her blankets and kissed her forehead, Maggie opened her eyes sleepily and said “Thanks, Daddy.” I asked “What for?” and she closed her eyes, said “For loving me”, and went back to sleep. I love being a dad. 🙂
I found it very interesting that this week the subject of “How and Why we do theatre, and why we do the types of theatre we do” came up in completely different circles three or four times. Not just in passing references, either, but in lengthy conversations and exchanges (some more than others, but still…) I’m not sure what the universe is trying to tell me, but it’s gotten me thinking now, anyway! 🙂
Now, time for bed…where I will do some reading and probably be up for another hour!
