A New Direction

Monday, October 7, 2013

I’ve always had great directors.  Some people who do one-person shows hazard these waters without a director, but I would never attempt it.  From the first – the meticulous and irrepressible Elizabeth Swenson (without whom there would be no Eenie) to brief contributions by Paul Millet and Jessica Zweiman, to the incomparable Martha Demson – each director has contributed to the shaping of the piece and keeps me honest, finding every true moment, stretching the bounds of my talent, honoring Eenie by bringing out the best that I can possibly deliver.  I can’t do it on my own.

This production is no exception.  I’ve chosen my LA sister in Louisville, Jennifer Pennington.  We’ve been friends since the moment we met and it was a no-brainer when I was choosing who would guide me through this leg of the journey.  Tonight my decision was proved well-founded.  Jenn picked out some stuff that has bugged me since my first reading of the show and we rewrote it on the spot.  Here instincts are dead-on.

So we killed us some little darlings tonight.  Tennessee Williams would be proud.  Stayed Tuned for further developments!
