Today I'm working on a song that uses Hydraulic Fracturing as a metaphor for sex and reckless dreams. Translation --> Awesome Song!
In the spirit of creative procrastination I'll post some updates on here on how it's going.
Here are some of the rhymes I got so far:
Release The Kracken
Lets Get Cracking

Back From Atlanta
Just spent the week in the ATL for the final previews and opening of BOB at The Aurora Theatre and it was a delightful time. Directed by Sean Daniels (who directed the World Premiere production 2 years ago), the show has tightened and sharpened since its first production. Our set was the same as the Humana show, albeit a little bit smaller in size to accomodate a less gargantuan theatre. The new all-Atlantan cast was as lovely as their southern accented characters impeccable.
The show moves up to Geva Theatre in Rochester, NY starting March 7
I didn't see any Housewives, alas. I was hoping to tell somebody to "close their legs to married men."
After some delicious barbecue at Fat Matt's, Sean and I got to take in the majestic Atlanta Cyclorama, the "World's Largest Oil Painting" which depicts in graphic detail the Battle of Atlanta. You sit in stadium seating in the middle of the painting which then rotates around so you can slowly take in all the carnage that is taking place. Theres a diorama in front of the cyclorama to make the painting feel like it's crawling our towards you. Somehow Clark Cable worked his way into the diorama portion.

Off to the ATL for BOB
The fabulous folks at the Aurora Theatre in Georgia are mounting BOB in its first professional production since its premiere year in 2011! Fearless amazeball director Sean Daniels is seizing the reins once again. The show is a bit tighter than its premiere incarnation and I'm so excited to head down for the final previews and opening night this week. We had to cut the Lance Armstrong joke late last week because we didn't want it to overshadow the far more comically superior Dean Martin joke. Damn you, Oprah! The theater has deemed the content of the play one chili pepper out of three, so I think that means you can bring your children who are not quite yet corrupted, but are on their way.
