The Month of May. When Everything Happens All at Once

"Life is what happens to you while you're cleaning the cat box."

This is going to be a very busy month. Always a blessing and a curse. It means I'll be doing many cool things with some very cool people. It also means I'll get to spend less time on my couch with my cats drinking IPAs and watching Hannibal, The Agents of S.H.E.I.LD., Supernatural, The X-Files, Crisis, etc. Life is hard.

ATTACK AT BIKINI WEREWOLF BEACH, PART II (shhhh - there is no part one)

Robot vs. Dinosaur's first original full length musical opens at The Den Theatre on May 2nd and runs for one month only. I co-wrote it and will be doing house management duties during the run. You may also see me mauled by a werewolf on a few random nights. I sat in on a rehearsal last week. The music kicks butt. The actors and musicians are nailing it. DNAinfo Chicago did a nice article on us. Click on those links for more info.


I am very excited to be participating in this. I saw the last one and enjoyed it immensely. You will see me tap dance in my piece. Well, let's just say it will generously fall under to wide umbrella of what some people may consider to be tap dancing. This is on Saturday, May 3rd. You can get more mostly honest information about it HERE. Get your tickets in advance. They had to turn people away at the last one.


I'm really proud of my Comedy Workshop folks. They have been killing it all semester. For every show we've had way too much material and some really great scenes and songs have yet to see the light of day. This is a good problem to have for putting together a show. This is officially their final show - they'll be doing another performance at Manifest, but we'll be shy of a full cast. This show is free and will be at Donny's Skybox (fourth floor of Piper's Alley, North and Wells) on Friday, May 9th at 5pm. No reservation required. Come on in.


I love teaching this workshop. Want a kick in the ass? For writing, not for anything pervy. Want to move from writing sketches to writing short plays? Want to just hang out with me for the weekend? All good reasons to take this workshop. I will share with you improvisational writing techniques and you will write three ten minute plays all in one weekend. AND, as if that wasn't enough to make your head 'splode glitter, one of your plays will be done in a staged reading on Sunday night. It's a blast. Go Gorilla Tango for more info.
