Home: A Festival of Storytelling
I will be performing "Just Say No to Bedbugs", a true story about my move from New York to Chicago this Monday, March 23rd at 7:30! Come check it out -- the other stories that are being presented with mine are great as well.
The entire festival is happening over a span of two weeks, but if you want to catch mine you have to come on Monday! (I promise it's worth it. It's a good story. As my friend Patti once said, at that time I was living "a full out tragicomedy". And she was right. She was absolutely right.)
I would love to see you there as it is probably going to be my last "performance" in Chicago. (More about that later.) : )
The Side Project Theatre
1439 W. Jarvis Ave.
Tickets are $15 -- $3 off when you use the code "home" online! : )
In completely unrelated news, I'm thinking about finally getting an Instagram account. I'm telling myself I will use it to showcase my art, but I'm really probably just going to take pictures of Baltimore Orioles things when I'm in Virginia for a week, let's be honest.
Well guys, I'm back again tonight at Three Cat's "Cabaret on the Lake". I've read selections from "Much Ado About the Rocket Man" the last couple times, so I thought I'd switch things up a bit and read from my current project, "The Farewell Tour".
"The Farewell Tour" is the story of Leslie, a 31 year old who, after careful consideration, has basically decided her entire life is meaningless. She has big plans to off herself in exactly one year's time (though she's still working out the details on how to go about doing that) but not before she completes a list of activities and visited all the necessary people on what she has decided to call her Farewell Tour. It's sort of her version of a bucket list, except a bucket list has fun things like "sky diving" on it, and her Farewell Tour includes tracking down her old college roommate so she can give back the sweater she borrowed her junior year and never bothered returning.
Let's call this one a dark comedy, shall we?
I'm still knee-deep in the first draft of it, so it should be fun to see what parts people respond to.
Come on by if you're interested, the even is FREE and starts at 7:30 pm. Located at 6205 North Sheridan, on the first floor of The Mansion.

Had such a great time at Strange Bedfellow's fundraiser on Saturday, February 28th! If you were not there, you seriously missed out. First of all, there was Harry Potter themed chocolate, second of all.. do you even need a second of all?
I had a great time chatting with people, selling some art, and eating a lot of tiny meatballs. (That isn't a metaphor for anything. That is quite literally what I did. There were tiny meatballs, and I ate them.) Quite possibly my favorite part of the night, however, was making personalized sketches for the guests at the party. Tell people you'll draw them as a superhero and watch them get creative! Here's a little sample below of some of the things that people wanted.
It was a great night. I have a great job.
