Mother of Invention newcomer is acting in a production of Midsummer Night's Dream in the woods! Congrats Jay! Details from Jay below:
i'll be performing "a midsummer night's dream," directed by stuart bousel and presented as part of atmostheatre's theatre in the woods series.
that's right, it's theatre-in-the-frickin-woods! we've got a beautiful plot of land, about 30 miles out of the city, just off of skyline. beautiful amphitheaters in the middle of a redwood forest. [honestly, i feel better as soon as i get out of the car, but i'm from the forest, you know? when i get back to nature i just feel calm, and free. but anyway...]
the show's great. it's a LOT of fun, briskly paced, highly intelligible, and it's got a great cast. it's a fun way to spend two and a half hours on a summer day. and did i mention it's in the woods?
and on a personal note: i don't usually like to pimp my shit, but i'm really proud of some of the work i've been doing on this show. i'm doing two smaller parts, mainly for comic relief, but this shows just...feels right. so, if you have a chance to make it up to the bay this august [and let's face it, the only people who don't want to spend august in norcal are northern californians], please come check it out.
tickets are going fast. i found out today like half of our dates are sold out. so, my bad. but there are plenty of other performances. we preview the last weekend of july and then do saturday/sunday through labor day. all performances are matinees [duh, the woods are scary at night], 1 o'clock curtain. here's the website:
i believe i've got a couple comps as well, so if you need one, ask early and be poor. but come see the show.
