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!

Our Very Own Frankenstorm

No one ever said that making theatre was easy. Little did we know…

Our first workshop was slated for NYC in late October 2012. Which means…we were there when good ol’ Hurricane Sandy hit. Our first venue was The Alchemical Theatre Laboratory but we had to switch locations because they were completely shut down from the storm. We then moved our rehearsals into Joe DiPietrio’s apt and continued preparing for our performance. (You’ll see a pic of him below with our new writer, Rocko.)

In a quick shuffle, we booked a new space at the Producers’ Club and were able to pack the house with a great audience. This was a great opportunity to show off the new script and get feedback from the NYC theatre scene movers and shakers. No longer a one-woman show, we added the character of Ernest Shackleton and had Brandon play him this time around.

The response to the show was so overwhelmingly positive! It made all of the Frankenstorm-crazyness worth it.  We’re so excited to continue working on the piece and sharing this story with everyone.

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.
