In the mean time, here’s a review that we’re so excited to share from Rich Cook:

“Frankly I am awed that anyone with a semblance of sanity would take on such a daunting task as to tame this dragon of many tails.  And so it was without any expectation that I attended last night’s premiere of ERNEST SHACKLETON LOVES ME. 

I found the show to produce a panoply of emotions, from surprising laughter to musical foot tapping, to spiritual stirrings.  It is an audacious creation.  Your cast is jaw dropping talented.  The music, lyrics, stunning and in step with theatrical expectation (it will score an animated adaptation well.)  Valerie and Wade… I dunno how to say it better: both are joyous!

Clearly the Seattle audience had a great time!  They are a lively exuberant bunch and it made the show especially delightful.  Kudos to your excellent staffs (NY & Seattle) Dannie F, and entire creative team.  I will book tickets for the Broadway opening soon as you announce!”

Thanks for the kind words, Rich!

Seattle, We're Coming For Ya!

You guy’s: It’s all HAPPENING!

We’ve locked down rehearsal space and workshop performances at ACT Theatre in Jan. and early Feb., then we’ll take a two month hiatus (haha, “hiatus.” yeah, right.), and then we’ll have our full-scale production at Seattle Repertory Theatre in April! Ernest was right: “Superhuman effort isn’t worth a damn unless it achieves results.

We can’t wait to take our show to the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Charting a New Course

Sometimes there are ups. And sometimes there are downs. 

The next plan for the show is to move it to Seattle for a pre-Broadway run with Balagan Theatre. We had been booked for a January rehearsal and February performance slot, but they have lost their performing venue, the Erickson Theatre. (For those keeping track, that’s two theatre spaces we’ve lost for this show.) 

But we’re feverishly looking to find a new space in Seattle. If we can’t find one in the next two weeks, it might not happen all together. Actors and designers are still holding these dates open and hopefully something will come together. 

It’s like Ernest Shackleton once said: “Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.

First Workshop in NYC

Alright, the time is finally here. It’s time to start really working on this one-woman show!

For our first rehearsal, we decided to do this pretty bare bones.  We just focused on the script and tried to make sure that the story and character of Kat is clearly and vividly making it’s way on the page. So, no audience this time around (but everyone will get their chance soon enough!).

And we’re so excited that director Lisa Peterson joined us for the first time! Having her on board is a real treat and we’re excited to be on this new-work journey with her.

Catch a snippet from one of the songs here.
