Yes, I am well aware that we are into July and there have been exactly ZERO posts from the Porch. This was a hard season for me. Othello kicked my ass and I still had to find the energy to do The School for Wives as well.

Woo hoo we opened!!!! Yay! My shows are both good.

I don’t care what people say about Othello being too long. It’s worth watching for 3 hours and 5 minutes. It is awesome. I would never review my actors in a public forum but this time I almost would. Let’s just say I am VERY proud to be part of this production.


The School for Wives is so much fun!! It’s short, funny and a touch bawdy. I am having a great time working on it. (A shout out to my Crippled Crew – – every single one of my Wives crew members is hurt. Chris has a hyper extended knee, Justin got poked in the eye with a sharp stick and Lindsay’s foot got run over by a GenieLift. I LOVE YOU GUYS AND I AM SORRY YOU ARE BROKEN!!!!!)

This is a period of adjustment summer for us for sure. A lot of new people and some new job titles and position switches.

Here is a quick low down (and I am sure I will miss some stuff so just let me know)

Richard our FANTASTIC Scenery Director (and impromptu TD in the Adams) is leaving us in a couple of day’s for the Gutherie. We will miss him!

Zak and Tina had their sweet twins which are keeping them both occupied. They are also moving to a Carolina (which one escapes me – sorry)

Ben was Props master in the Randall as well as being the Props Director. He did an awesome job and we loved having him!

There is a bunch of other shit going on but it doesn’t make me very happy so I don’t find a need to report it here. Things to remember….. there is a touch of Iago in all of us and anyone who says differently is LYING to themselves.

“To be direct and honest is not safe”

What else?

Oh Jamie S. will be in town tomorrow!!! WOOOOT!!!!!!! We have also had a myriad of visitors this summer. Micah left this morning, Kate Glo was here a couple of weekends ago. Debbie has been in and out (not that we see much of here around these parts – – but thems the breaks). Nykol’s friend Robbie is in town today – hope she can find time to see him with all her WORK…ha ha!

I have lots more to say but things are getting scattered. Sorry! I will make another blog soon.

Anyhow, hope you are all having a nice summer! Drop me a line and let me know how you are doing!!

    Man thanks for reminding me where I started. I do kindof miss the change of guard every year, the new people I would met and how big my theater family would grow every year that I would work. But then came the sad time when every one would leave and there I would be, alone and wondering if I was in the right place. I know now everything I learned there was for a reason. I miss everyone soooooo much and send all my love to the USF family.
