So as events unfold, I was asked to have “That Serious He-Man Ball” be part of the Dominion Arts Foundation “Powerhouse Readings” in August.
Quite a thrill I must say. They’re doing a retrospective of the best plays ever written.
Kidding! Their retrospective is of plays that kinda knocked people’s socks off, and then maybe they — “disappeared”. He-Man Ball has been my most produced work, and it put me on whatever map I was on. It has a long and illustrious history. (below, from the Houston Ensemble Theatre production, 2005)
Oh, it most certainly DOES have a history…
Lots of history…
So I’m very proud and excited about the reading. To be thought about on any level is a privilege. Truly. There’ll be t talkback afterwards, and I’ll share what I know with anyone who’s curious. Robert Connor, Founder of Dominion Arts, saw the original production of He-Man in Atlanta and it stayed with him for — what? — about 25 years (or more!).
Here’s the pertinent info. Anyone’s welcome to join in.
I just love showing off all this fly PR they’ve put out there. You can usually judge projects by the PR — and right now I’m all smiles.
