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.
COME SEE OTHELLO YOU WIMPS!
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.

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!!
