I'm getting my first New York City production!!!

In April, a musical I cowrote won the NJ Playwrights competition and had a full production.

A couple of weeks ago, a theatre company in the city contacted me that they wanted to put on a play I submitted to them AGES ago. (I honestly kinda forgot I even wrote it, let alone submitted it anywhere...I tend to do that...)

I've met with them, and they're awesome, and I think it's going to be a really good thing :) They told me that my play was the first one they read months ago, and they knew right then that they wanted to include it in their festival.

I'm really excited!!!! :bounce:

I even get my bio and headshot on the theatre company's website :)

Hopefully, this can be the start of a great relationship between myself and the company!

    Thank you so much!!! It's going to have three performances at the end of November. It's set in a bookstore, and I really thought only my friends that I worked with at the bookstore would appreciate it, since it's so many inside jokes :)

    Don't worry, I will :)

    The first show is four weeks from tomorrow...

    And there's a cover charge and a two drink minimum...for some reason, I find that cool...after years of paying for overpriced $7 club sodas at shows, people have to pay for my shows now!
