Well, friends, it turns out THIS is the cover of my book. The sideways title has been nixed by a huge two-initialed bookstore chain that, apparently, has a lot of power in decisions such as this one. 

So here it is! Though the sideways title was fun, this cover has stolen my heart. I hope it will steal yours, too.

Performing a number from our new musical Annie Golden: Bounty Hunter, Yo! →

Joe Iconis, Jason “SweetTooth” Williams, and myself will be performing a number from our new musical Annie Golden: Bounty Hunter, Yo! at the terrific CAP21, which is celebrating its 21st birthday tonight. 

I’m super-proud of our musical, which uses the conventions and musical styles of exploitation movies of the 70’s and 80’s to tell the story of a down-on-her-luck veteran musical theatre actress who gets pulled into the world of bounty-hunting.  Good times.

There should be more fun musical-related things to report in the coming months…

In Episode 35 of The Lance and Ray Show podcast, Ray and I have a great talk with his cat Dora, Ray prank calls me a bunch of times, and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, I share the Best Idea I’ve Ever Had, which I’ve been holding onto for at least a decade now.

Brand new inventions, an exchange of letters, and improv talk. →

In this ep, we have a lovely talk with three of Ray’s teammates from his PIT house team Navy Blue Seals: Dawn Harris, Ariella Knight, and Christine Piñeiro. We actually recorded this backstage at the PIT, so you can hear lots of fun background noise, too. If you’re into that sorta thing. Which I don’t know why you would be.

Ray also shares two groundbreaking new invention ideas, and he and I exchange a series of letters, which I think you’ll find very moving.
