The Rock Star

May 9, 2013 | Posted By: | Uncategorized |

So, I defend my thesis in a few days and hopefully become a full fledged MFA.  That’s exciting news.  I turn 29 at the end of this month.  Goodbye 20’s.  My traveling will continue throughout the summer. Safe journeys.  I’m thinking about becoming a rock star.  Rock on?

For those who have been keeping score my play Ex-gays was originally conceived with myself in the lead role of Pastor Brian.  Things changed and we ended up casting the lovely Carl Atiya Swanson instead.  That was absolutely the right choice for that particular production, but once can’t help but wonder what the original concept would have been like.

Now, I’ve got a hankering to be a rock star.  And why not?!?!?  Sometimes It’s very difficult being in this field.  Sacrifices are made more often than I’d care for.  It’s moment like these that I relish.  Every new creation is more than an opportunity to say something to the world, but every now any then I can fulfill a fantasy of mine.  Obviously there’s more to this idea than prancing around in ridiculous clothing.  Although I don’t really need much of an excuse to do that.  For now.
