Thank you, Roberta. I appreciate your kind words.
It's rare that I get video footage of a performance or reading that I can post publicly. Weird rights issues that make no sense to me. However, in my on-going search for funding, some grant applications request links to SEE your work, not read it. And so, these incredible artists... Continue reading

Not trite at all. Thank you. And I agree. The more we can feel less alone and alien or defective, the better. Connecting with other people who understand certainly helps (as much as it can, anyway.)

To me, what came out, digressive, at times not making a clear argument, tense shifts, grammar embarrassments, etc. are EXACTLY how my brain is working. A while back I was commissioned to write a solo... Continue reading

I lost count at sixty-five. As I dug through my calendar, ticket receipts, Facebook events and posts, and tweets, I knew I'd miss a few shows here and there that I saw, but didn't record. I'm kicking myself that I hadn't noted each and every show, but in my defense,... Continue reading

Finalizing (but it seems like beginning) notes on literary citizenship as I see it relating to theater and thinking deeply about the responsibilities of being a writer in our times.
