DINOSAUR AND ROBOT STOP A TRAIN keeps on chugging...

My show DINOSAUR AND ROBOT STOP A TRAIN has opened at the Bath House Cultural Center as part of the Festival of Independent Theatres. We have performed two shows of a six show run. The audiences seem to be digging it and the press has been positive so far. 

I am extremely proud of this show. On many fronts, for me as a theatre artist, it is the most difficult show I've done in a long while. I'm acting, designing, directing and marketing a play I wrote myself. It has been a tremendous amount of work and occupied that space several notches outside my comfort zone (which is the space I normally strive to be in my work). It is both the most fun I've had in a while on stage as well as the single biggest cause of stress. I'll post more on the process as it finishes up the run. For now, I wanna encourage any and all to come out and see the show. 

The show is funny and weird and charming and harsh and tender and layered. Above all, it is - in a very undiluted way - the kind of theatre I'm proud of creating right now, the kind I believe in and the kind I would want to experience myself if I were sitting in the audience.
