Living in Chicago

Sometimes means that you will occasionally attend a street festival by accident in the summer Sometimes means you’ll find yourself squished into the corner of the train car between an oblivious guy with a backpack and a chuckling gentleman who rolls his eyes Sometimes means you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves…

185 Buddhas is coming to Louisville later this year!

Louisville, Kentucky is a fantastic little city/big town.  I was very lucky to perform my first one-woman show, The Good, the Bad, and the Monkey there a few years back.  Well, I guess they must have liked me or something (or maybe they just liked the monkeys?), because they’ve invited me back!  Produced in conjunction…

SNORF!

So there’s this great puppet company here in Chicago called The Noah Ginex Puppet Company.  It was created by this guy, Noah, who happens to be super talented at making puppets.  So talented, that he was even nominated for a Jeff award for design!  I’ve worked with Noah and his company before in different shows…

The Great Pantsing Incident of 2012

While I was waiting for the results of my x-rays in the emergency room, my boyfriend looked at me and asked, “Was it worth it?” I succeeded in my goal.  I was victorious.  So, yes.  Yes, it was worth it. But before we get into the details of the Great Pantsing Incident of 2012, let’s…

Burma in the Fall

I dreamt of Burma in the fall It sounds like a poem But it’s not not yet It was beautiful though….sort of like Tennessee or Wisconsin in the Fall but way more exotic. Upon waking, I was glad that my subconscious did not call it Myanmar but wondered Can sleeping thoughts help the progress of…

After Watching the News

So much in the news this week has been nightmarish.  It’s been difficult for me to fall asleep at night when I think of the horrors that the three women in Cleveland endured.  It makes me so angry that this man had horrible domestic violence on his record, yet nothing was done.  And it makes…
