It’s rare, I think, to be able to point to a precise moment, a single second, on which your entire life – I mean, your entire life – pivots. And rarer still, I’d suggest, to be aware in that very moment of the profound transformation you’re about to undergo.
My moment happened one morning a little more than four years ago. Some time thereafter, when I’d talk a little bit about that morning, people expressed enthusiasm and encouraged me to share my story more broadly. So for the last couple of years I’ve been developing a solo stage show at The Marsh Theatre in San Francisco, and it’s just about ready for the light of day.
It’s a love story – an unusual variation on “boy meets girl, boy loses girl.” It’s a pretty heavy subject, but the story’s quite funny in spots (at least – it had better be!) It’s both serious and absurd.
It’s also about the most unexpected wake-up call you can imagine.
In the coming weeks I’ll be ironing out some kinks and polishing my performance, leading up to a show at The Marsh Theatre in San Francisco on Wednesday, May 11th. Interim performances are in the works, and I’ve already had a few advanced runs-through (hence those kind words on the side).
I’ll have a regular but infrequent (I say again – infrequent) procession of posts. You can also review the Facebook page for the show. And please – by all means – contact me directly if there’s anything you wish to say or ask.
