Theater IS Cool

This month is the 2nd Annual incarnation of UNSCREENED, a night of fantastic original short plays, one of which I wrote and directed! My play, ADIOS ASSHOLES, is part of this evening of one-acts by film and TV writers who wanted to explore/learn from/enjoy/get our asses kicked by actualizing our work on the stage for a live audience. The phenomenal “assholes” in my ADIOS ASSHOLES cast (get it? “assholes” = JOKE) include Abby Miller (JUSTIFIED), Noah Segan (BRICK), Ryan Harrison (Lost Moon Radio), and Steven Klein (LA theater regular).
The process of stepping out of my comfort zone of filmmaking to write a play and then direct it has inspired me and pushed me as a storyteller in ways for which I will always be grateful. It also terrified me. Thus, I’m really proud of this play and would love to have you join us for one of the performances.  Here’s the deets:
There’s a bit more information below about my esteemed UNSCREENED counterparts. I was such a fan of all of theirs, but now, having worked with them, even more so. I hope you will have a chance to see the show. I’ll be at every one.
The writers of Unscreened this year include Anna Christopher (Sloppy Firsts), Michelle Morgan (Middle of Nowhere, Imogene, and Variety’s “Top Ten Screenwriter’s to Watch”), WGA Award-winner Dahvi Waller (Mad Men, Desperate Housewives), and John Whittington (I Hope We Can Still be Friends, Untitled Cyrano de Bergerac Project for Gary Ross and Nina Jacobson). Directors include the Independent Spirit Award- nominee Robbie Pickering, Susanna Fogel, Michelle Morgan, and Anna Christopher. 

The cast includes Chris Klein (Election, American Pie); Tig Notaro, a comedienne currently receiving critical praise for her recurring role on The Sarah Silverman Show; Anne Gregory, who recently starred in the Paramount Insurge faux documentary to be released in 2012; Maria Thayer (Strangers With Candy), Jasper Grey, Will Greenberg, LA theater regular Steven Klein, and comedian Josh Fadem, who can often be seen late night on Conan.
