Pre-Production Life

Since we have our first rehearsal tomorrow, I thought I’d try and give a post about what pre-production has been like for this process.  It’s very similar to the past incarnations where you live in a constant state of anxiety, sheer bliss, frustration, panic, and convinced that you will never finish everything in time–just multiplied by 100. Pretty much, you walk around like this:

On the Air – Workshop Production!

In case you were wondering why I’ve been so MIA lately (and this year really) it’s because of said title! On the Air will have a fully staged workshop production presented by Overtures at The Gallery Players in Brooklyn…NEXT MONTH.

On the Air Reading at The York – Recap

So as I am writing this post, I realize that we finished writing On the Air two years ago, last week.  Two years sounds like so long and so short a time.  It’s crazy to think how far we’ve come and how much we still have yet to do, but that’s the amazing part of this whole process!

I needed a few days to “detox” and recover from this latest reading.  I took a week off blogging and feel so much better about it.  The whole month of October was a bit of a whirlwind, to be honest.  I mentioned it before, but the casting process was insane.  We were down to the very last minute with a few of these roles.  We couldn’t be happier with the cast we got though! So encouraging, hard working, and just the nicest group of people.  You can read all about them here.

A Reading at The York

So like the title says, we’ll be doing a reading of On the Air at The York Theatre—next week!

As you can imagine, I’ve had no life.  Between re-writes, casting, and also directing at my old HS, I’ve barely had time to breath.

On the Air: In Concert – Recap

So we did the In Concert version of On the Air to a well receiving crowd this month.  I’m very happy to say that it went very well, albeit a few hiccups here and there regarding a flying moth (don’t ask), but the feedback we’ve received has been very positive and we feel even better about where we’re going with it in the future.

We have a few things lined up which we can’t share with you JUST yet (I know, I know. I’m cruel.), but I CAN share some photos of the concert that Ned Barber was generous enough to take!

Submissions and Rewrites

Lately, I’ve felt like I’ve been bombarded on both sides of the theatre industry–acting and writing.
