Because it’s almost June. June, June, June. Just because it’s June. June. June.
No sparkling prose. No flat prose either. Just updating.
May: Tootsie-I didn't leave the theater singing. Not a single song. We've gotten used to that. But I laughed more than I've laughed in any show lately. Doesn't humor--from the writing, acting, and characters--trump a lot? The creators, Santino Fontana and the whole cast, take a bow.
Peggy, too. My friend and 3 other talented women, sang and told their very different stories in a show at Don’t Tell Mama. I’ve known Peggy since we’re 22 and taught together. So lovely hearing her sing.
I've been invited to participate in Times Square Playwrights and have attended two Tuesday night sessions. Actors do cold readings of our scenes. I like it there. An opportunity to grow.
My favorite part of May: time with my wonderful family. It was Some Enchanted Visit. Of course.
June: Monday, June 3 ---7 writers are each reading 10 minutes of their work at Kasteli’s Cafe in Chelsea. I am one. Come if you live in or around NYC.
Saturday, June 15 --Would love to see you at the Hunter Writing Center Conference. I’m on the memoir panel. The conference is informative and fun for aspiring writers to seasoned pros. Click here for information.
