Beyond excited…

There are two sides to a live theater experience: THE PASS: THE AUDIENCE

Putting together THE PASS has been an eye opening and all encompassing experience for me. There are no short cuts, no splicing of tape with a razor, which is how I learned to edit in the studio before Protools.

There is the experience of creating the piece, pulling it together, after you have written it, with various collaborators, musicians, coaches, directors, producers, lighting designers, stage design, projections, sound design, the theater, the publicist, the journalists, and all… to reach its final destination: THE AUDIENCE. That’s the other side.

My working on THE PASS has been the most intense, & exciting,  gut wrenching, out of my comfort zone & scary experience in my professional music career. We open on 9/27 in London at The Playground Theatre. I am going back to where it all started. London. Sharing (truly) my stories along the way. Before and after…I first stepped foot on the land of cars driving on the other side of the street. When I fell in love with England.

There are always other sides, other stories, other ways of being, other songs and other days. These days…are these days and these are no ordinary days for me.

and today I discovered Delia Derbyshire.

See you in London!

 

Great Britain: The Sum of Our Parts

flag UKWith the up coming premiere of THE PASS in London at The Playground Theatre, and work at KMPR, my life is pretty full and time has become a bit precious. However today as I look back at my time in London and all the amazing people I have known and worked with over the years that are British, I realize the impact Britain has had on my life. Aside from it providing my first big success with  Lucky Stars, there have been so many talented and supportive people both while living in London and while living in West Hollywood and NYC that have helped me with my music career. They have also influenced me personally. They are  the sum of all my parts. You know who you are. Forever grateful.
