February Readings Coast to Coast

7 Feb

I’ve got two reading coming up! Here are the deets…

The Magic Theatre’s Asian Explosion 2012 begins this Thursday and includes a reading of the full-length version of Out of Joint (which was originally presented as a one-act at Perry-Mansfield this past summer). The reading will be directed by Sean San Jose of Intersection for the Arts and will feature a full cast of 14 actors. Yeah. 14. What am I nuts?

Dr. Kajish creates a time travel formula to save mankind by giving it endless second chances. But as people skip indiscriminately through time humiliating enemies, saving lives, and negotiating perfect vacations, the universe unravels in this romp through the recent future, the distant present, and a past still to come.

with Byron Abalos, Lauren Bloom, Catherine Castellanos, William Dao, Stephanie Dermott, Kat Evasco, Alex Hsu, Anna Ishida, Danielle Levin, Melissa Locsin, Stephen Muterspaugh, Brian Rivera, Liz Sklar, and Katie Tkel

At The Magic Theatre, Friday, February 10 @ 5:30 p.m. For more information please call the box office at (415) 441-8822

If you happen to be a resident of my home coast (east, that is) and can’t catch my time travel shenanigans in San Francisco, don’t fret! Ma-Yi Theatre Company is doing a reading of The Shotgun Message two weeks later as part of the winter spate of LabFest Readings. For this one, I’ll be reunited with my long-time collaborator Pat Diamond, so it’s a bit of a family affair. We aren’t fully cast for this one yet, but I’ll let you know when we are!

Journalist Kent MacDonald is no saint and certainly no savior. At least he never meant to be until 17-year-old Jared — the primary source of his article on teenage camwhores — winds up missing after turning in his pedophile clients to the FBI. In a lurid world of online sex, naïve parents, and kids who know too much, it’s up to Kent to find Jared, bring him home, and save both their souls in the process.

Presented by Ma-Yi Theatre Company at The Beckett Theatre, 410 West 42nd Street, Saturday, February 25 @ 2:30 p.m.

Two very different plays on two very different coasts. I’d love to see you at either or both!
