Edith is “undeniably poignant”

6 Nov

Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them keeps rounding up accolades as Actor’s Express continues it’s run. On top of being Suzi Bass Award recommended, the first three reviews of the Atlanta production have all been positive ones!

Also, there was one more straggling rave review of the Miami production that came out the day before the show closed (oh, well).

I’ll update the Press page with pull-quotes and all that jazz later this week!

Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them Opens Tonight at Actor’s Express!

29 Oct

Edith has gone south!

My week in Georgia is coming to an end, and I plan on going out with an air rifle BANG. Tonight Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them makes it’s third NNPN Rolling World Premiere stop at Actor’s Express in Atlanta, GA. There will be a performance and post-show reception with the artists (including me) at the theatre — please join us for both!

Additionally, I’ve updated the Edith gallery to include photos from the New Theatre production in Coral Gables, Florida.

It’s my last day in South Florida. I’ll be catching this afternoon’s matinee and then heading on back to New York City. Come join us this afternoon at 1, especially if you’re under 25 — get to the theatre early enough and you could see the show for free!

New Theatre’s Production of Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them Opens This Week

13 Oct

I’m down in Miami this week (Coral Gables, to be specific) for the second stop of Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them‘s Rolling World Premiere at New Theatre. The cast is an energetic and adorable bunch, and the folks at New are all nice as nice can be, so please come out and support the show. They are putting a tremendous amount of work and care into Edith’s south Florida adventure, and it absolutely shows!

On a related note, I’ve finally added the Humana production photos to the Galleries section of this site. Enjoy!

The Different Faces of Edith

5 Oct

After an amazing start at the 2011 Humana Festival, Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them is now spreading out across the country as the the 2011 – 12 theater season begins! And with these upcoming productions come all kinds of poster art.

I have to admit: I didn’t think that I would be as excited about this as I actually am. I loved the Humana poster, but somehow it didn’t register that there would be different posters to be excited about for all of the stops on the Rolling World Premiere (even though, obviously, yes, there would be).

And so, without further ado…

New Theatre‘s production of Edith will be opening next week in Coral Gables, Florida! The show will run from October 14 – 30th. I’ll be in Miami at a special reception on October 14th, so please buy tickets that night and join us for the fun.

Atlanta, Georgia’s Actor’s Express will follow as the third stop at the end of October, running from October 27 – November 26. I will be in Atlanta that week, and as things shape up regarding opening night events, I’ll keep you posted.

Edith‘s final Rolling World Premiere stop isn’t until Spring of 2012 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Until then, take a peek at Mu Performing Arts’ poster for that production.

Rounding out 2011 – 12 will be productions of the play at Manbites Dog in Durham, North Carolina and B Street Theatre in Sacramento. I will definitely be stalking their sites as the productions open and will post the artwork here.

If you’re in the Miami or Atlanta metro areas, tickets are already on sale! Enjoy the show, and I hope to see you there.
