The Swine Maiden in brief


I was sitting next to director Jerry Manning this morning when he received his play, The Swine Maiden, by Marcy Rodenborn, and I’ve been trying to keep tabs on its progress throughout the day… 9am: Jerry pulls Marcy’s play at random from the stack and reads through it on his own. The Swine Maiden combines Freud, Jung, pigs, and fairy tales. Although that makes the play sound like it was written by Gary Busey on acid, I promise that, on […]

Friday Performance Pix


Check out David Baum’s pix from the 8pm performance on Friday. The 14/48 Band – I’ve recently been informed that you have to sleep with two (not one) members of the band to get into a sold out show. Whether or not it’s both band members at the same time can be negotiated.

The Very Capable 14/48 Band


The band is fucking AMAZING. They show up at 11am, and nine hours later they have a two-hour show scored and rehearsed. And then they throw in an original theme song just for fun. How it breaks down is the directors each throw songs at them to intro (and sometimes outro) their plays, the band downloads the mp3 and the lyrics, they listen once, turn around, and make it happen. That means they could be learning somewhere in the neighborhood […]

Even More Friday Photos


Virgin photographer (and all around swell guy) David Baum provided these photos from Friday day. Actor Bret Fetzer and director Jose Amador rehearse Resurrecting the King by Dennis Schebetta. Any ideas on where to find a severed head at ten in the morning? Kerri Brown-Wooster gasps at the size of Peter Dylan O’Conner’s ice cream cone. They just don’t come that big in England. Darian Lindie directs David Goldstein, Buddy Mahoney, Jason Harber, and Keria McDonald in Parachute, written by […]

Do You Smell Bacon?


Director Jerry Manning pulled Marcy Rodenborn’s play, The Swine Maiden, and one of the prop requirements is a set of identical pigs. He’s working with the design crew to figure how to create them (IN TEN HOURS), but if any of the Seattle Pigs on Parade go missing today, I had nothing to do with it.
