2013 Theatrical Report

Another year immersed in plays. Six productions this time.

THE ODYSSEY

We began with The Odyssey, the same script we used for the production in which I acted back in New York. It’s a huge piece, with many moving parts, but so very entertaining.

RIP VAN WINKLE

Next was a children’s piece I wrote, a version of Rip Van Winkle. It, too, is an Odyssey story. It’s a beautiful meditation on time and mortality.

MAN AND SUPERMAN

Then came Shaw’s Man and Superman. It was a blast, of course.

TWO CHEKHOVS

In the fall, Sting & Honey put up two short Chekhov plays: The Dangers of Tobacco and The Proposal. Tobacco is more of what we generally call “Chekhovian.” The Proposal is a straight up farce.

RICHARD III

I got one Shakespeare in this year: Richard III. What an amazing play. What fantastic characters. What superb verse.

THIS BIRD OF DAWNING SINGETH ALL NIGHT LONG

Finally, This Bird of Dawning Singeth All Night Long played for its sixth year in a row, and drew its largest audience yet.

2014

First up for 2014: Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters. I plan to clown the sheep dip out of it, because Goldoni was such a wuss. Then Sting & Honey will put up Hedda Gabler. The plan for the rest of the year is coming soon.
