was that there would be so much stress associated with getting some shows up finally. Nerve is without a doubt a success. It's going really well and its almost over and it's freaking me out just a little that it's going so well. i'm so used to the rejection that so many people telling me they like it is kind of confusing and i had no idea that would be the case. Not that everyone liked it. (I've read some reviews now) But most people did seem to really enjoy the play. Which makes me feel great and yet I'm sure i have sent it to probably a hundred theatres which either rejected it or never responded. And i don't understand that.
But I have no time to try and figure that out because now there is all this stress about getting people in for Food For Fish. (opens the 6th. buy your tickets now) And the thousands of other things that have to happen to make it all come together in time. I'm scattered. It's been really hard to rehearse something while something else is going up.
Not to mention that I wish I could leave for a few days and see how Pretty Theft is going in DC. I'm not going to get there until right before it goes up. which means I have to leave in the middle of the Food For Fish run.
Not that I'm complaining. I'm thrilled to have all these productions. It's just sort of disorienting. there are a lot of plays on my shelf. a lot. i hope this burst of shows will lead to some more of them getting done though I'm not sure it works that way exactly. You might have to get a pulitzer before that happens. Although I'm not sure that even a pulitzer will ever make it possible to quit the day job, will it? i wonder what makes that possible.
