Standing on Ceremony, in Austin

I’ll be jetting down to Austin, TX in a few weeks to direct their benefit performance of Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays — as well as be in the wedding of some dear friends!  What could be a better trip?

Standing on Ceremony is the brain child of Tectonic Theater Project, who you may know as the company that created The Laramie Project.   They’ve rallied 25 theaters and 19 universities (and counting) to stage Standing on Ceremony on November 7th to raise funds and awareness for Federal Marriage Equality.  Check out if there’s a SOC near you!

Shackleton’s Voyage – via Puppets

I’m kicking off the teaching season at BAM today, and couldn’t be more thrilled with the first show on my docket, 69S.  Check out the incredible, master marionette craftsman Erik Sanko discussing the creation of this piece, a study of Shackleton’s 1916 nearly fatal Arctic adventure, here.  And, see it as part of BAM’s Next Wave Festival!
