Well, I’m not exactly leaving today, but the work has certainly started already! Happy to announce that the show I’ve been quietly working on since October has been accepted to the NYC Fringe! That’s right, Kill Sister, Kill! is headed to the New York International Fringe Festival this August!
I attended the Fringe last summer and was immediately hooked & eager to return with a show of my own. I was lucky enough to meet Jamieson Child when I directed Rope in the fall, and when he told me about the show he wrote with his brother Drac, I thought it would be the perfect fit. The brothers & I have been slowing expanding the book & have recently brought on a new composer, Mike Zahorak, to give the show the gritty 70’s feel we felt it was lacking. I’m producing the musical through Bygone Theatre, along with their company, Kid Switchblade Productions.
It’s going to be a busy few months but I’m totally pumped, and will keep posting details as often as I can. For now, check out the FB group for show updates.
A little over a week ago I received an unexpected email from the head of Promise Productions, saying she had gotten my information off of the production resources contact list, and was looking for someone to stage manager her show that was headed to the New York Fringe. Initially I assumed she had contacted dozens of people, and that I wouldn’t stand much of a chance; how often in this business do we get a call asking us to take on a job, let alone one that will give us the chance to travel to the Big Apple? Yet, here we are! On August 2nd I will be traveling to New York to work on “No Visible Scars”, so expect lots of theatre updates as well as a lot of excited posts about all the stuff we’re seeing and doing in NYC!
Before we head out, we are doing a free preview performance of the show, July 30th, 7:00pm; all the details can be found on our facebook event page. Donations will be accepted should you want to help fund our NY production.
