Friends In The Arts

Some weeks, there's a lot to talk about: great auditions, cool classes, breakthroughs, celebrity encounters. Other weeks are busy and productive and satisfying but not so scintillating in a blog. C'est la vie. Lucky for us all during less dramatic weeks such as this, I have a ton of talented and wonderful friends doing neat things out in the world: In NYC: The Fire This Time Festival, co-produced by my pal Kevin opened this week. My fabulous husband, Carl Riehl, did sound design for the 10-minute plays and for the festival's full-length production, Lord's Resistance.

In other parts of the U.S.: My awesome friend, Rob Neill, is on tour with Peter and the Starcatcher. They're in Michigan right now but they'll be visiting Washington, DC, Hartford, CT, and Providence, RI soon (and then more cities into June).

The Welcome to Nightvale crew, headed up by Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink (with numerous wonderful others in close proximity) have live shows in California, Nevada and Arizona through the end of the month (and are, of course, available where the most popular podcasts can be found).

On The Internet: Miranda's wonderful web project, Friend Stories launched recently.

This weekend we'll be brunching with friends, attending our neighbor's 2nd birthday party, and having dinner guests with whom we will play Cards Against Humanity for the first time. What fun are you up to?
