Still Truckin...

Sorry for the delay in posting. With overcoming my hangover (just now) from the close of PULP, finishing episode two of Pinkie and seeing two very enjoyable shows this week (Bryan Enk’s The Crow: Final at the Brick Theatre on Tuesday and Clay McLeod Chapman’s Pumpkin Pie Show Halloween Extravaganza last night at UNDER St. Mark’s), I either have too much to write about or not enough.

So, for the time being, I’ll direct your attention over to these blog posts, which I think are Required Reading for those working in the theatre world. I’ll just add that I do believe that for playwrights whose names aren’t Sarah Ruhl or Tony Kushner, self-producing is really the way to go in getting your work staged. I can’t recommend it enough.

(I do realize that advocating self-producing is very much in the “Tilting At Windmills” category, but at the very least, I can rest assured in knowing that at least I didn’t bit my tongue on the subject.)

Anyway, I’m now gearing up for A Very Nosedive Christmas Carol, episode three of Pinkie (and by “gearing up for,” episode three, I mean “finish writing”) and REVAMPED, details for which are below.

Maybe I’ll use this space to do more than just blatant plugging. Maybe.

Then again, maybe not.

Your awkward date,

James “Sweaty” Comtois

Vampire Cowboys very popular series returns!
