My friend and colleague, Mr. Joe Janes had this crazy idea where he’d write a sketch a day for 365 days.  Well, he did it!  I’m happy to be one of the directors for this project.  Each director has two weeks worth of sketches and will have one performance each.  All of the shows will be in June at the Strawdog Theater.  Yay!
