Scattershot 2006 Year-In-Review

Taking my cue from Matthew Freeman's latest blog entry (which in turn took its cue from Brian Olsen's), below are the first sentences of the first Jamespeak entries of each month in 2006.

Ah, the memories...


Our first remounting of a show has come and gone, and I for one am happy with the results.


I'm amidst the "dialogue" with playwright Mac Rogers and am awaiting his answers to my quite nosy questions, and we here at Nosedive Central are organizing the first reading for The Adventures of Nervous Boy (A Penny Dreadful), which will take place sometime next week, depending on everyone's schedules.


On Monday, March 1, The Raven, my favorite bar - the ostensible "Cheers" for Nosedive Productions - caught fire.


One of the things I want to get into today is talk about large casts versus small casts, and the weird conundrum that both provide.


Things are moving slowly and steadily in the right direction for The Adventures of Nervous Boy.


[Congratulations to Qui Nguyen...]...from Vampire Cowboys for the big article/spread in this week's Time Out New York!


"Okay, Okay, I know a lot of you people probably like to wait until the last minute."


I guess my main options for blogging today can be about either Mel Gibson or this story in the New York Times about Nielsen National Research Group (a corporate cousin of Nielsen's television-rating unit) and Broadway.com creating a new way to market Broadway shows.


I'm almost back to civilization.


Ken Urban's ambitious though somewhat slight I (Heart) Kant, which is presented by the Committee Theatre Company and playing for one more night at 440 Studios' Linhart Theater, is about four very different women in New Jersey trying to find happiness in very different ways.


Last night was our first rehearsal for "Captain Moonbeam and Lynchpin" for the Revamped: The Superhero Diaries show on November 19, which went very well.


Last night Nosedive had a production meeting to discuss future endeavors for the company, including (but not limited to): an upcoming fundraising holiday party, space-hunting for the next play, Suburban Peepshow and taking The Adventures of Nervous-Boy to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Not exactly nostalgic,

James "Bittersweet" Comtois
