Happy 2012! Lots to look forward to.

2011 was a good year.  Despite a Steelers loss in the Super Bowl, it was a good year.  It was the year Casey and I celebrated our first anniversary.  It was the year my family took its first big family vacation in about 15 years.  It was a year during which I did a lot of performing, starting with WildClaw Theatre’s Carmilla, then The Dream Journal of Doctor Jekyll with The Mammals, Watership Down with Lifeline Theatre, and pinch-hitting for a day on Lifeline’s The Count of Monte Cristo.

Each of these shows was incredibly fun and incredibly challenging, and I was lucky enough to work with a lot of fantastic artists who also happen to be fun and amazing people.

2011 was also what I liked to call the ‘year of the short play.’  My work was featured in festivals and productions by The Mammals, Theatre Seven of Chicago, The Artistic Home, American Theatre Company.  THE REVENANTS also snagged a production in Los Angeles.  It was a year of development, a year of copious writing, rewriting, and thinking.  And because of it, there is much to look forward to in 2012.  Here’s what I know so far:

February 2012KILL ME produced by WildClaw Theatre, Chicago (world premiere)

Spring 2012 – A piece in Tympanic Theatre‘s The Nebraska Project, Chicago

August 2012THE BODY SNATCHER produced by Brisbane Arts Theatre, Queensland, Australia (world premiere)

Fall 2012THE REVENANTS will receive productions by Happy Medium Theatre in Boston, and also by New World Arts in Goshen, IN.

Annnd…there’s one other thing that I really wish I could talk about, but can’t yet.  But it’s another production (a co-production actually) of one of my plays in Chicago.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!  See you at the theatre.  (Go Steelers)
