Dreaming Through the Maze

I have a dream. A simple but difficult dream that I'm scheming to bring to reality. That dream is for Intentional Theater's Happy Days to run in an off broadway house for a substantial run, for it to be reviewed by the best writers at the Times and the Voice, and for a wide audience to experience it.
I have no experience with how to make this happen and am feeling my way through the process: I have begun a conversation with people at what I hope is a likely candidate.

This seems to be a slow process.

In the meantime, a project I thought would start this fall was given a space grant and accepted to the NY Fringe Festival and so I am rehearsing a new play! The play is Truth Values: One
It is DeCari's story of her experiences at MIT, in the PhD track studying logic, and why she became an actress instead of a mathemetician. DeCari is an excellent actress and writer and it is a joy to work on it with her.
A 12 minute snippet will be presented on Thursday June 25th at Dance Theater Workshop 219 W. 19th Street, NYC, 7:30 $10.
Fringe performances are not yet scheduled.

Samuel Beckett's iconic 20th century masterpiece of modern isolation and illusion is presented by Intentional Theater using a text specially edited to reflect Beckett's own changes as limned in his production notebook.  This production promises to be a groundbreaking event.  Asta Hansen plays the trapped Winnie, up to her waist in a mound of earth.  She is joined by Dale Fuller as her husband Willie who resides, crawling and grunting behind the mound.  The characters, seemingly in separate worlds, are yet connected by shared history and love in this strange and wonderful play.
