So many good things going on. I’m slowly starting to get back to work, it’s been a good week – I got to be involved in some creative stuff, which is always fun, and man did it make me realize how much I miss directing! Haven’t done it since last Fall, but I’m scheduled to do “Sirens” at Williamston Theatre next season, and I’m looking forward to it. I’ll be working on a staged reading at the Lansing Renegade Theatre Festival in August, also, which will be fun.
I have been able to read a bunch of plays, see a lot of movies, which has been a nice way of “refilling the well”, as they say. Also saw “Book of Mormon” at the Detroit Opera House, which was hilarious, irreverent and fabulous. And let me recommend the films “The Rover” and “Snow Piercer”, both of which are out now and both are really, really terrific! “Chef” was fun and sweet, also.
And, just for fun, here’s an interesting breakdown of “Visual Comedy In the Films Of Edgar Wright” that I really enjoyed, and I think there’s a lot there for stage directors as well.
Now, I’m off for some arm surgery. Wish me luck! Have a good Tuesday everyone!
Very best wishes on that arm surgery. Keep us posted. We’ll be thinking of you!

Thank you both, Jeanne and Frank, everything went well! Now resting groggily on the couch! 🙂
