exciting news for z space

Every time I tell my boyfriend I'm going to work at Z Space, he responds in a french accent "Oh, Z Space?" You can imagine.

While Z Space had space for me to write, they haven't had a performance space in several years, until now! Z Space is becoming the long term tenant of the 280 seat Theatre Artaud in the Mission (which was formerly a tin can factory, and also made aircraft engines during one of the world wars. I'm guessing II.) This is a big awesome bonanza for local artists, imho.

stuff going on

It's mid July, and I got older last week. I'm feeling good.

here's some mostly self promotional stuff:

  • Hooray to the Lights Out Theatre Company in Chicago who, I believe, performed their opening night of one acts tonight which includes my play Multiplex, in its first out of bay area performance. Go go!
  • I'm acting in staged reading at the Bay Area Playwrights Festival this and next weekend. Yes, it's a rare public performance that does not include being semi-improvisational or murder and mystery (though the play I'm in has both) I'm acting in Julia Jarcho's wildly curious and brilliant American Treasure, a play about history and Pocahantas and genre and words and hats and vultures and a lot more. Check out the festival with all the great plays, and Julia's play is up Sat at 8 and Next sat at noon!
  • I went to the beyonce and the coldplay concert. They were both quite enjoyable.

by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb

@ The Necessary Theatre
Louisville, KY

Can impending doom be the ultimate aphrodisiac? Marine Biologist Jules and would-be partner Jo go toe to toe as the world collapses around them. Can he deliver on his promise of 'sex to change the course of the world?' Sex, lies, and apocalypse,...It all adds up to a hot new play that has been garnering raves from New York to Washington.

Variety says, "Sex! Planet-ruining cataclysms! Loads of booze! We're ready for whatever strange places BOOM wants to take us. Nachtrieb has a degree of control over his work that its happy-go-lucky spirit belies."

Directed by TNT vet Mike Brooks, BOOM features the talents of TNT regulars Jeremy Sapp, Leah Roberts and Becky Poschinger. Call (502) 636-1311 for dinner reservations.
