A Dramatic Departure

Sometimes an idea strikes you and you have to see where it takes you. So it was with the show I wrote and performed at the Tucson Fringe Festival last weekend. I can’t say it was a great performance – I got a few scenes out of order – but I did it in front of a paying audience, which was exciting. I can’t say it was a great piece of theater, but after the show people were discussing it, so it did what I intended. All in all, it was a good experience. This was a departure for me in that it was a drama. I don’t think I’m done with it, but for now I can move on to other projects, possibly including some new stand up material. It was a stretch for me, but if you don’t stretch, you never grow.
