Good News

We've signed the papers, it's official and now I can blog about it. Next Theatre Company -a Chicago area theatre - has commissioned a full-length play. I've been talking for several months to Jason Loewith, the producer & artistic director - and I have a working title and about two dozen pages; "The Rapture Project." In the next eighteen months, we'll be reading and developing the show in Chicago, after I - you know - finish writing it.

Jason is, by the way, the librettist for the upcoming "Adding Machine" at the Minetta Lane. This project was developed at Next last year, and is now in previews Off Broadway. Opening night is Feb 25.
