HELLO WEB DENIZENS!
whoa. what a month september was. i am trying to channel my rage at the state of the world into effective activism, though at the moment the best i can do is just go running alot. really fast. i hope you're doing whatever you need to do to survive. and let's hope the calendar change to october (and the beginning of my 41st year) gives us all a respite from rancor, lies, and entrenched power structures. too much to ask of one month?
MISS YOU LIKE HELL CAST ALBUM ARRIVES FRIDAY!
something's coming! love musicals? want to know what i've been writing for the last 7 years? on friday, oct 5, the cast album for my musical Miss You Like Hell arrives on streaming and digital services. 20 tracks written by myself & quiara hudes, performed by our original cast and orchestra. i co-orchestrated and produced the album. i'm really excited to hear what you long-time web denizens think of the music! if you just can't wait 2 days, you can pre-order here
MISS YOU LIKE HELL CD & PAPERBACK ARRIVE IN EARLY NOVEMBER!
if you prefer your media to be physical, the CD & paperback versions of Miss You Like Hell
arrive in early november. the CD comes with a 36 page full-color booklet that includes production photos, lyrics & liner notes from quiara, me, oskar eustis & jose solís. the paperback is a beautiful 120 page reproduction of the script for the show. all items will be signed by me (and quiara if i can corner her with a sharpie). together they'll get you as close as possible to experiencing the real show without being there!
(ahem, productions in boston, indianapolis & more in 2019)
FALL IN MY HOME STATE
i'm super excited to announce that this october and november, i will be a resident artist at the virginia center for the creative arts
. as many of you know, i grew up in fredericksburg and spent my summers in the george washington national forest. i am thrilled to get to spend a season in my homeland as i start a new project about the beautiful (and complex) place that is the great state of virginia.
that's it for this month's news. don't worry, i'll bother you again friday when the cast album arrives!!!
