Come see me on stage in “NEVER OPEN THE MINI BAR” – I actually memorized lines for this https://www.facebook.com/events/802428106459414/
This is the first scripted work I have performed in NYC since 2011 FRINGE FESTIVAL The Seed of Abraham -A Musical at the Bleaker Street Theater.
I loved that production but I swore to never do an unpaid/stipend showcase work again. LOVE THE PROCESS but it takes you out of the game for paid work for too long. Staying at home waiting for the phone to ring is a great idea when it rings often enough. I get emails (via backstage, AA etc) almost daily from young playwrights and student filmmakers offering me an audition to do their show/short film for free. Sorry. Not a snob. Pure economics.
BUT when someone I know and respect offers me a role – w/o having to audition – I have to at least consider it. I love to act. HATE TO AUDITION. AND THEN that script is full of AWESOMENESS – a role I HAVE TO PLAY!!!
I’m in!!! This is a role you have never seen me play. My interpretation has roots in many of my own characters from my life Improvising with Eight is NEVER Enough Improv Comedy Show BUT this is truly something NO ONE has seen be portray yet in many ways it is the role I was born to play.
SO BE THERE OR YOU ARE DEAD TO ME – sorry been watching too much shark tank LOL
THANK YOU Geoffrey Scheer
BTW – for an artist MOST of the amazing work we get to do happens in tiny theaters with no budget. We pay the bills on camera. A few of us on stage. But every day in this city there is tremendous work going virtually unseen. I wish I could do more of that and sometimes I am lucky enough to slip into that world.
NOTE TO STUDENTS (never looking but always stumbling into teaching moment) GET ON STAGE as much as possible in these works. There will come a time when you cannot afford to do these. ENJOY being an artist while you still can lol
