Hi Blog-Friends! Happy New Year! The end of 2010 was hectic, carrying right into the beginning of 2011 but now I am writing to you from Chicago! I arrived this past Friday night and I'm here for about two months to perform in Laika Dog In Space. This is a show that I co-wrote and performed in at the Ontological Incubator in NYC in October '09. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had as a performer - really fun material and, through both the material and the performance, an amazing connection with the audience every single night. Now it's being re-mounted as a (the first!) co-production of the New York and Chicago (aka Original) Neo-Futurists. After the first production closed, we did a bunch of re-working and re-writing and while I loved the show in its original incarnation, I think it's even better and really wonderful now. So I'm excited to dive in again with our first Chicago rehearsal for the re-mount tonight!
Here's the show page on Facebook. You can "Like" it no matter where you live and that'll help us out.

If you live in the Chicago area, I hope you'll come see the show! It runs Feb 3 - March 15.
If you have friends in the Chicago area, I hope you'll recommend our show to them.
Regardless of where you live, I hope you'll take a minute to think about Laika - a sweet little dog who gave her life (or had her life taken) to be the first mammal in space.
