Fall Done Fell, And Opportunity Done Come A-Knockin

24 Sep

So much for summer…..Fall has Sprung! I’ve been rehearsing my “B-SideMan” excerpt for the City Lit Event coming up. (There I am, 3rd Playwright down)

FINAL MD ARTS

And it’s certainly made me focus on the entire script. I read the excerpt for several friends this past weekend (in Martha’s Vineyard, no less!) and they seemed to think it provided that peek into Alonzo’s Brain (always a scary thought). Those weren’t their words, I’m just extrapolating.

I trust what I’ve written, and we’ll see how things go…..

The last show I wrote for the Waxter Center was such a big smash (Broadway here I go). “Ella Fitzgerald,” played by Tierra NiCole sure made me sound great.

“Ella” sang 7 songs and da joint was jumpin. She sang scat, bop, and several standards. Oh my lord, she could sing. Again, this picture captures it all. The faces were full of attention, and admiration. This series is probably one of the best dramatic experiences of my life.

My partner in dramatic crime, Tyrone stands next to Tierra — we’re all giving each other a little post-party pat on the back.Tyrone directed. Frankly, Ella’s life story sells it itself. I was just lucky enough to put it into words.

Hopefully, there’s more STUFF to write about this fall. As I write, it’s a gorgeous day and I’m contemplating so much. Looking forward and back. Thinking of plays and what’s to come. Recognizing changes in my 62 yr. old self. Trying to find a bit more perspective to my artistic aspirations. Is all I’m doing all that’s ahead for me? No shame in that. No shame at tall. I just want to know if my grand vision gets, well…shall we say, “grander.”

And I’m also hoping this year’s annual Tour DuPort ride has great weather in store. I haven’t done this ride in quite awhile. But it’s an ideal Sunday morning jaunt, and me and my bike friday are counting the hours.

This blog certainly lives up to it’s name.
