What’s the tumblr equivalent of a latergram? This was from last Wednesday, December 16, when my playwriting class presented an evening of excerpts from their new plays at the East West Players David Henry Hwang Theatre. Very grateful to this amazing group of human beings for helping me create a safe, productive, nurturing environment. We started in September and worked for around 12 weeks on developing new plays. It was tough but so rewarding. It was my first go-around at being a playwriting instructor (as opposed to being a theatre history instructor at USC) and I learned a lot. Looking forward to my next opportunity to do it again.
I got to present a couple of Ovation Awards with Bekah Brunstetter this week! So that was a cool thing that happened!
This might be In Love and Warcraft’s first fan creation! Nicholas Pilapil and Michael Barnum from the Los Angeles production of ILAW co-wrote a song inspired by the play. “Evie” from Raul’s perspective. Can’t wait for the official single to drop.
I’m so proud to have written this ridiculous show. IN LOVE AND WARCRAFT opens tonight in Los Angeles, its fourth production and West Coast premiere.
