Well, can't believe how long it's been since I've updated this thing. I've been in rehearsal for a show for the past three months or so. My friend Jenny has put together a play composed of text taken from various interviews she did from genocide survivors (the Holocaust, Ukrainian Famine, Rwanda, Darfur, Cambodia, etc.). It's been a good learning experience, as I've learned a lot about genocides that I knew very little about. Really, in school, you learn about the Holocaust, maybe a small bit about the Ukraine, and that's about it. It's interesting to hear what people who were there have to say about what they saw and what their experiences were.
The show finally opened last weekend, and we have received pretty positive feedback all around. The show has also reminded me why I hadn't stage managed in about two years. With the other hobbies and commitments I have going on in my life, it's tough to block out my free time for a three month span in order to stage manage a show. I did the show mostly because Jenny's my friend and she needed a stage manager. I don't see myself doing much more managing in the future.
So, anyways, as I said, the show opened last weekend, so I'm back to having time to do things after work, which means I can get back to blogging. I've had plenty of things to write about, just haven't had the time. Not much to say in this blog, just wanted to get out and "I'm back" post, I guess.
