So yes, a little remiss on my side of things for not posting lately, and I do apologize. But you see, I’ve been rehearsing a show and it’s running now!
Oh, you mean I should have told you that?
Well, I just did!
Alright fine. I’ll hit myself with a whip and sing Sondheim’s “Mea Culpa” later. But first I want to tell you about the show I’m in. It’s the first mainstage show of the Montford Park Player’s summer season and boy is it a doozy! It’s a Double Feature of “The Comedy of Errors” and “Double Falsehood.” “Errors” is of course the well known Shakespeare play, and “Falsehood” is of course the very obscure Fakespeare* play.
*A Fakespeare is a play of dubious quality which “scholars” have “decided” is a part of “Shakespeare’s” “canon.” Plays that were based on plays by Shakespeare tend to fall into this category.
This show is a blast to perform. It’s kind of teetering on the edge of being a musical. In a Bollywood sort of way. And we grab our balls while wearing bling. You kind of just have to see it. I play various parts in “Errors” and the wronged lover Julio in “Falsehood.” It runs Fri/Sat/Sunday nights in June, and it’s free! Details are here.
Ta-ta for now!
