Happy New Year. What's your first big writing event/quest/challenge for 2013?

On February 1 I'll be one of 7 playwrights writing a play that will be performed February 2 in New London, Connecticut.

Happy Happy to all.

And hope no one gets the flu. Had a lot of friends get it. Everyone has noticed in Chicago that street traffic is less, parking lots are not as full and L train ridership seems noticeably down this past week. And get this: Chicago has NO snow! Kind of scary. And it is the 50's! In January.

Congrats, Kato. That sounds like a nifty project.

I am starting the new year off right with a one-act play getting a staged reading in NYC later this month on a bill with several other plays. That is the fourth thing I will have had done in NYC within the last year.

My writing quest is getting another full-length play completed, and hopefully another production or readings.


Best to all,

It's a bad flu. It's also very contagious. One of the cast members in the play I'm currently directing came down with it and within a week 8 out of 9 actors had it. Hard to get enough of them out of bed to hold a rehearsal. Been going on for almost two weeks.

Doug,

Tell them, "You're actors...ACT healthy!"

One famous actor was doing a show about 20 years ago with a dear friend of mine. The stage manager was very ill, but showed up for work. The SM had a new baby at home, etc. Anyway, the star actor saw him, looking like crap, sweating, shaking with chills, etc. The star asked him, "What the hell are you doing here?" He replied, "Well, the show must go on, right?" The star said, "You know who originated THAT line? A PRODUCER!!! Now get the hell out of here and go home to your family. I'll handle this for you."

I was truly torn. One part of me wanted to say: "So you're sick. Suck it up and I'll see you tonight" but fortunately the more rational part of me told people to take care of themselves, get lots of rest, drink lots of fluids and work on your lines."

The good news is that this year's flu shot is very effective. The CDC says they "nailed it". The three of us who didn't catch it had flu shots (along with one of those who did get it.)

We may have a full cast tonight. We'll see.

Doug
