this blog finds me ensconced at a #Starbucks on Route 114 in #Peabody ….Massachusetts that is…. I drove up here yesterday from New York for four performances of the play at The Folklore Theater in Gloucester, MA (two last night, two tonight)…. great space, I feel like I’m performing in my living room…. there is an ease and comforting performing here… the space is the creation of Henry Allen… “The Boy on the Bureau” is the first production to tour there. It is an honor and a privilege… and a lot of fun….

there are already negotiations afoot to bring the play back - perhaps in the spring….

I was additionally blessed to have a wonderful audience made up of people from the gamut of life experiences - high school (#StJohnsPrep), college (#HofstraU), #drumcorps - my high school guidance counselor, a college girlfriend, and one of my nieces and her family among them….

looking forward to tonight’s audiences…. hope you’ll be among them….

open the show once again at our pop-up theater on Bell Blvd. in Bayside…. mere blocks from my house….

this time around the pop-up included an art gallery and a troubador….

and then at 8 p.m. performance of “The Boy on the Bureau”…..

it was a great crowd made up of friends and strangers…..

another show tonight at 8… then one more tomorrow at six….

then I’m off to Gloucester, MA….

NOV. 4, 5, & 6 BAYSIDE, NY - POP-UP THEATER

NOV 11, 12 - GLOUCESTER, MA - THE FOLKLORE THEATER

DEC. 1O - BROOKLYN, NY - THE TANK THEATER

It never slows…. I’ve spent the last week getting the pop-up theater ready (exciting things are being proposed for this arts space), getting flyers out and abbot the Bayside/Little Neck/Dougaston area, taking care of my wife who is ailing of late - a new rise of old conditions, and negotiating with the Tank Theater’s SoloWeek Festival in Brooklyn and The Folklore Theater of Gloucester, Massachusetts….

Difficult to believe, but “The Boy on the Bureau”… has at least 8 and perhaps as many as 12 performances in three different locations in the next 45 days!

GET YOURSELF TO A PERFORMANCE!!!!!

this past week I am humbled…. as much as I ever try to control my life, I know none of us ever has much of any control… instead, we have responsibility…. to ourselves, to those we love, to the ones we’re contracted to, to the people with whom we share neighborhoods, societies, nations, and the planet, and to whatever greater force we follow and devote ourselves to….

this week I’ve been concern my with my wife - whose health is more compromised than poor…. this week was far worse in my mind than in reality…. which I played out on social media…. I thank gracious and supportive friends for their understanding….

and just as I have this to deal with, I have friends who are burdened far more than me….

I have always hated the fact that whenever I find myself burdened by life’s challenges and obstacles, the Universe will conveniently show me someone having a far worse time of it then me….

this week I’ve been scared, challenged, rewarded…. guilty, glad, restless….

the whole week has been one of challenges both good and bad…..

and there have been results both good and bad… sad and joyful…..

thank you for your prayers and support….

hope I see you at the show.....
