The reading with Mad Cow went incredibly well! It was an honor to be on stage with some of the best actors in Orlando. It was also wonderful to be a part of the talkback. We often talk about how art and science are so different. But the two are not so different when we think about questions of ethics, the process of creation and discovery, and the role of the final product in society. There were a number of scientists in the audience this weekend. I truly enjoyed hearign their perspectives.
Hello kind reader,
I have returned to work following a wonderful and rejuvinating holiday. Waiting for Godot was incredible. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen had a wonderful rapport. They didn't play it as though they were best friends, and I liked the bit of tension that choice generated.
Today I begin rehearsals for the reading at Mad Cow. In case you've forgotten over the holiday, I'm reading Ellen in An Experiment with an Air Pump. I'll be workign with some of my favorite Orlando actors. It's too bad it's only a 4 day engagement!
I approach each new project with the focus of a high stakes-contract, and the sense of play you'd associate with a game of hide and seek. Creative collaboration is not my hobby; it is my job. I treat is as such. I work hard at it. I love process, but I delight in successful project completion. I focus on finding the balance between the two. Both joy and quality come from this balance.
