I’m just finishing up some last-minute housekeeping items and then I’m off to New York to see my play, Gift Horse, performed at the New Works 4 International Short Play Festival at the Richmond Shepard Theatre at 309 East 26th Street.
In the past month, I’ve had two situations where I found out that my work was performed–after the fact. Both events were local enough that I could have easily attended but since I wasn’t informed, they became just two more entries on the resume.
That makes me all the more excited to be able to see this, and to meet director James Ashcraft and actors Suzann Capra and Joe Russo. Oh, and I’ll also be checking The Normal Heart and Good People… how can I not squeeze in some other theater while I’m there??
This year, I will have had the pleasure of seeing three out of the four Tony nominees for Best Play (I couldn’t get tickets to War Horse, though knowing myself, I don’t think I would have chosen this favorite as my favorite anyway) and I’m curious to see which I think should take home the award. Do you have Tony award predictions? I’d love to hear them.
Wish me luck,
