My job is very cool, y'all. This week, I'm stage managing a workshop/staged reading of a brand new musical called DOUBLETIME with lyrics and music by this guy. You know his songs, even if you don't know him. And he's awesome. AND he's a blogger. I am star-struck. I hope he hasn't noticed.
If you're interested, you can read more about our Southern Writers' Project festival of new plays here. This is one of my favorite things we do at the theatre, as it's a whole week dedicated to the process of making a play. All the frills--the costumes, lights, sound, props--are stripped away so we can focus on developing the story. For a theatre geek like me, it's great fun. Add Nile Rodgers into the mix? It's downright heavenly.
