Rose Parade with Cirque du Soleil

Rose Parade with Cirque du Soleil

HELLO. I create theatre: write, perform, produce, direct and teach. I value ferocity, humor, boldness, details, inclusiveness, generosity, and discipline. I believe theatre can and should lift our spirits. It is sacred but not precious requiring full-assed play. I create theatre-as-event. I guarantee good music. And there are snacks. 

WHAT KIND OF THEATRE?  Traditional popular genres: commedia dell'arte, carnival, clown, Kabuki, vaudeville, melodrama, absurd, medieval, Grand Guignol, magic, puppets, mime, spectacle, folk tradition, myth, cocktail parties. Together. In new ways to serve storytelling and the theatrical experience.

We Suck AerobicsI concocted this for exercise motivation. Join us!

Robespierre to Danton: "Your light champagne brews are poison to freedom." That's champagne in my self-designed "WWRD?" mug with his mug. My annual Bastille Day Party.
