Yes, we're pushing four months since this show closed. I still plan on doing the post mortem.

I have all sorts of other news to share, too....

PLAYWRIGHT WORK:
The Writer icon
Final Draft 11 icon

There's been a bit of development on the draft of the play I've been writing. I had a log jam there for a few days. I had come to a point in writing where I wasn't sure if much of what I had was going to be compelling to anyone but myself. It was a mixture of unrealistic self-doubt and quite realistic honesty. In other words, what I came to see was that some of it was bogged down in detail and some of it was just fine.

I was able to leave it for a few days and come back and address the concerns that were on the right track. Besides addressing the issue of decluttering some prose, I also rewrote a portion to put more conflict, (read: argument), into a scene which gives it more energy. This last thing was a problem that had bugged me but that I wasn't readily recognizing when I'd hit that wall.

At this very moment the manuscript is at 52 pages. I read it out loud, not speaking any of the written directions, but leaving estimated time for any action, and the spoken reading took me about 75 minutes. That, when it was a few pages shorter. The general rule is that it should take about a minute a page, but there are a lot of monologues, which adds length to the dialogue per page. That's why I got a timing at about 50% more than the general rule suggests.

Here's my quandary of the moment. My goal has been a one-act. Quite frankly, since I had a fairly complete idea of the story arch, I didn't think it could be a two-act play. But it may end up one. I am just about to breach the climax of the story, and then the resolution, which I am less clear of at the moment than what the climax is. I'm not at all sure how much more there is in words, so the play running longer than what should be a comfortable length for a one-act seems possible. I don't think I want it be two acts.

For one thing, the spot that would logically be the place for the act break is not as strong of an act break as I would want. It's not a bad act break, but it's not a tension-builder nor does it really introduce a new plot twist or complication, except for perhaps in a subtle way. One might say, "well then, rewrite it." The problem there is that I'm quite satisfied with that segment of the play so I am not inclined to mess with it. Like I said, it's not a bad act break, just not the strongest.

I actually would rather keep this thing to one act. I'm trying to write something as marketable as I can, at least in format, and a one-act with fewer characters (as I've written before, this is a three-hander) is the goal. So, of course, there's always the ruthless cutting, which is likely what I will go back and do after I have the first draft done and have had some people read it. I may wait until after I've had a reading, but I'm not sure about that.

One other thing I did was upgrade my Final Draft software from version 8 to Final Draft 11. Then, just a few days back, I added Final Draft Mobile on my iPhone so I can work on, edit, etc., the draft at pretty much any given time. I suppose this is mostly for when i get an idea and I want to deal with it in the now and my MacBook Pro isn't immediately accessable. Hey, the app was only ten bucks, so what-the-hell.


PUBLIC DRAMATIC READING COMING UP:
Ohio Playwrights Circle
FOR THE LOVE OF THE CRAFT ICON

Sometime here soon I should be hearing back about a public reading of local playwright Daniel W. Owens' play, Jimi's Guitar, that will be done through the Ohio Playwrights Circle. I've read some scenes as one of the characters in some class workshops and Dan has requested that I reprise the role for this public reding of the whole play.

I believe I've written in past blog entries that I am actually against type, for the role only because of age -- the character is in his late thirties; I can possibly sell late forties, but late thirties? I don't think so. Fortunately this is a dramatic reading not a full production, so my being out of type is not as critical.

Dan's play is one that fellow local actor Franklin Johnson and I did a scene from a few months back. I think it's likely that he is coming on board again as that character -- but don't quote me because I may not know what the hell I'm talking about.


PROFESSIONAL GIG ICON
U.D. Law - University of Dayton School of Law icon
There may also be a new U.D. Law gig coming up in the next month or so. I was solicited a few weeks back and am now waiting for further word.

For those who don't know what this is about. The University of Dayton Law School commissions local theatre diva Fran Pesch to hire actors to come in and play clients and witnesses for the law students to practice their skills with. Pretty much any situation where a lawyer encounters a client or a witness may be covered: mock trial testimony and cross examination, initial interviews with potential new clients, counseling such new clients, deposition prep, and depositions.

We actors are given documents with our stories -- our facts -- and, within the framework of the facts, we improvise performances as the said client or witness -- sometimes this is referred to as guided improv.

It's not a massive paycheck, but it is some extra money in the pocket and it is technically a professional gig, so....


FINALLY, A TRIP TO BROADWAY!:
Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - a new play by Aaron Sorkin, starring Jeff Daniels, at The Shubert in New York City
In the audience icon

Over the course of the last decade, I have, on occasion, usually around at least once a year, but not exactly every year, taken a trip to Chicago to see some theatre -- often at steppenwolf. And I've kept telling myself: sooner or later, you have to go see some theatre in New York. Really, I ought to go see some theatre in a lot of other cities -- there's a lot of good American theatre out there.

Anyway, I knew I was eventually going to get to NYC for some theatre, though, to be honest, I always expected that I'd see an off-Broadway production before I saw a Broadway show. A lot of that has to do with just how much a ticket for a decent to excellent seat costs on Broadway, with the numbers going up from the one through to the other. Also, though not at all opposed to seeing a musical, I have been more inclined to get to New York to see some sort of interesting straight play. For the most part. Broadway seems to be heavy on the musicals, because they have a longer, and bigger, box office life. But there are clearly exceptions to that rule.

xxxx
Here's my seat!
Along comes the three-way marriage of Harper Lee, Aaron Sorkin, and Jeff Daniels. That's a pretty damn potent combination. Just alone, To Kill A Mockingbird is an American classic regardless of the medium (novel, movie, stage play). Then to have the brilliant Mr. Sorkin write a version of the stage play from the novel. Then to have such a fine actor as Jeff Daniels step into the body of Atticus Finch. You just can't get much better of a combination than that!

Then, since its opening this past December, the reviews and the buzz have been overwhelmingly positive. Several of my New York theatre friends as well as a couple from my neck of the woods have seen it and they have all raved about it. New York theatre critic, Peter Filichia, one of my FutureFest (and facebook) friends also has written a most positive review, "To Refresh a Mockingbird," which simply aggravated my already mounting urge to make the trek to The Shubert and experience this wonderful merging of talents and brilliance.

My ticket is for the May 11, 2:00 matinée. As you can see from the graphic here, I have a damn good seat. Why am I going to travel 600 miles and go see such a monumental production and settle for a crap seat? Answer: I'm not. Yeah this is going to be an expensive weekend for me. I also am just going to bite the bullet and stay downtown -- though, since I haven't priced hotels yet, I reserve the right to amend that proclamation. My plan at the moment is to drive over on Friday, the 10th -- that will not be changing -- spend Friday night and Saturday night in the city, and I hope also Sunday night, then drive back Monday. It's all got to do with what budget I have to work with. Regardless of what the weekend turns out to be as a whole, the main event is still going to be the main event.
So YaY!



ANOTHER WINNER AT HOME:
SHADOW BOX logo.
DTG Producer icon

The Shadow Box opened Friday evening to a most receptive audience. I wasn't there for the rest of the weekend, but I have no doubt the audiences were just as pleased. The Saturday audience may have been rather small due to the winter storm that moved in. I actually was at the theatre before the show, shoveling snow and laying down salt, but I left before the curtain came up. Anyway: TWO MORE WEEKENDS!

Directed by Patrick Allyn Hayes
Produced by Christina Tomazinis

Production Dates: Mar 1-17, 2019

Anna is in the hospital having the latest of her frequent deathbed scenes, and this one looks like it may be the real deal. She makes a shocking confession to her grown children about an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother's Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small.

  • Please bring all scheduling conflicts between Jan 16 and Mar 17, 2019.
  • CHARACTER
               NOTES
    Anna
               A woman perpetually dying. Anna is a woman in her mid-sixties who, after years of hiding, admits to an affair she had when her two children were young. In her youth she was a beauty and even now retains some of that elegant sophistication. She knows how to pose. Anna didn't do anything extraordinary in her life but decides to make up for it by, perhaps, re-editing the past.

    Seth
               Anna's son. Late thirties to mid-forties. He makes his living writing obituaries. As a boy he attended Julliard studying the viola. He has difficulties with relationships and, perhaps, some of Anna's coldness rubbed off on him.

    Abby
               Anna's daughter, Seth's Sister. She lives in California, as far away from the family one could be without leaving the country. Let that tell you something. She has a child of her own and a challenging relationship with her partner. Abby is more boisterous and animated than Seth.

    Lover/Dad (Abe)
               This actor plays both the mysteriously romantic Lover and her loveless husband in the past. The Lover is an "Urban Gentleman" and Abe has grown tired of Anna and her theatrics.

    As an actor I was privileged to have a small roll in this multi-award winning, very touching, most poignant short film. I was further privileged to accept the award, on behalf of Beth McElhenny, for Best Family Film at the 2008 Secret City Film Festival in Oakridge, Tennessee. The film has won awards far more than that one time. Click on the image to go to the official site and see the successes, thus far.

    The Shadow Box made its Broadway debut in 1977, winning both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Joe, Brian, and Felicity come from different walks of life, but all three are spending their final days with family in hospice cottages on the grounds of a large California hospital in the mid-1970s. Joe's wife Maggie is in denial, as they both struggle to accept the truth. Agnes dutifully cares for her mother Felicity, who pines for the return of her other daughter, and Brian must play referee between his brassy ex-wife and his male lover. Each day, the residents are observed and counseled by an invisible Interviewer as they explore their emotional and physical struggles.

    Journey into the Wild West in the year 1890, in this classic story of good versus evil, law versus the gun, one man versus Liberty Valance. When a young scholar from New York City travels west in search of a new life, he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees. Rescued from the plains, the town soon becomes his home. A local girl gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice to turn and run or to stand up for what he believes.

    Produced by Rick Flynn
