The Lost World – tickets

I had the pleasure of appearing on “4 Minutes or Less with Max” to discuss my play; ‘The Lost World’. It was a great segment and I was happy to speak with host Max Gullekson about the show. I’ve embedded the video below. Tickets are now available for The Lost World, my original play presented…

Butter on Everything

Earlier this week, I met up with my Mom for lunch. The kids are on school vacation so whenever one of these weeks roll around (which seems like every other week in the current curriculum) – we try to make plans to connect the distance that spans us; seeing as how her grandchildren are growing…

Wishlist

We all have a soundtrack to our lives – those critical songs that take us back to some precious memory the second we hear a few quick notes while surfing the dial. A good song – tethered to sweet, sad or blissful memory – will drop you right back to that spot, day and date,…

Don’t You (Forget About Me)

Don’t You (Forget About Me) That’s the buoyant, hopeful alternative-rock anthem that opens and closes The Breakfast Club; that great John Hughes-scripted flick that took a representative from every walk of High School life, tossed ‘em in a closed room and got them talking. It says something that the Simple Minds tune still gets fairly significant…

The Lingerie Year

Earlier this week, a little birdie helpfully reminded me that my Blog has been in operation for 12 full years. Only in this tale – the little birdie is a giant stork named Sean who is not only my tallest (and earliest) friend – he’s also the designer of this site. I asked Alexa if…

My Top 5 Favorite Movies of 2017

I love movies. It’s been that way since I was 9 years old. That was the Summer of 1981, when the Internet was barely a blip in Al Gore’s neural processors and my next door neighbor – an older kid named Jay – wandered over and asked my Mom if I could go to the…

The Accidental Playwright

Three produced plays under my belt and I still do a double-take whenever someone refers to me as a playwright. This role was certainly never in my career trajectory nor my intention but if our life paths are traced along an interconnected series of “two roads diverged” choices – I’m happy to say that at…

The Original Disaster Artist

I am The Original Disaster Artist. And if I believe that, I guarantee you all of the poor, unsuspecting friends and family that I roped into starring in my own little film in the late 90’s – Two Roads Diverged – would absolutely agree. In fact, nary a day goes by that I don’t anticipate their…

Resolve

In 2018 – I resolve to write more. That one’s been a long time coming; in fact so long that I’m sure the people who used to stop by here on a semi-frequent basis would do so only now for the same reason you go to a museum. Pay your respects, linger a little longer…

The Lost World – Auditions

It’s Saturday morning, January 5th. Normally around this time of year in New England, we’re just starting to feel the first stings of winter chill. In fact, the last few Christmas Eves have found me outside by a fire pit – enjoying the temperate 50 degree weather while sipping a fine beverage and remarking on…
