Yesterday I talked about new things, and today I’m plunging right in. I’m using the new(ish) template for blogging here on WordPress. It’s weird. But a lot of new things feel weird, until they’re not so new anymore.
That aside, we had our tech rehearsal for our Writing 6 Show, “Me Inside Me” last night, starting at the ungodly hour of 10, that’s right 10. P.M. As the actors did a final full run (!), our director (and teacher), Rob Kozlowski worked on the lighting and sound.
It’s like a real show.
I take it back, it is a real show, and it runs for four weeks, starting this Friday, January 8, 2016, in Donny’s Skybox Theater, just one floor above Second City’s famed mainstage. That’s pretty exciting.
I started this journey on a whim a year ago, not thinking about what would come next, not even thinking about whether I’d take Writing 2 after Writing 1. I remember sitting in the conference room in Producers’ Row in Second City, hearing about the path to a produced show, and thinking, hey, that could be fun.
And here we are.
Last year, I decided to try more, take a few more risks, and here one of them is bearing fruit. I had a lot of misses, no question about that, but last year was absolutely different than the one that came before, and I needed that.
Anyway, philosophizing aside, if you’re in or around Chicago, come check out the show! It’s hilarious (no, I’m not at all biased, why do you ask?) and our cast is insanely talented. And then maybe think about what could be different for you a year from now. You never know.
