So… in going back over what I’d written so far… I sort of committed to that sitcom thing, which I realize can not only be the thing Katie needs to prove—maybe it’s her ex-husband who never thought she was funny; that’s the kind of thing that can stick in her mind—but also a reason to find Neil Patrick Harris.
But now… it’s been two weeks. My other work is caught up. I’d been prepping to move so my house is already cleaned out (and with pick-up services suspended, my garage is full of boxes ready to go). I don’t feel like I have enough time for daily museum tours but I am getting the itch to do… something. Like write.
The other two writers of The Green Room (Chuck Pelletier and Rod Damer) and I wanted to bring to life on stage what happens inside the four walls of a small Midwestern college theater department’s backstage green room. We concentrated on the hopes, passions and dreams of four theater majors who formed a clique.
