So I have got a bunch of stuff coming up. If you like stuff, then this is the page for you!



First, I co-wrote a show with my good friend Jacob Smith. It is premiering at his year's Hollywood Fringe Festival. Our show is called The Best of Albuquerque Fringe 2025. Confused? I should hope so. This is a parody show taking full aim at Fringe festivals. We think it is a giggle. It has limited dates throughout June, so click on either link above and get more information about tickets. Lucky enough to have talked my wife into being in the show with me.

Before this show has even completed its run, I have two directing projects coming at me fast and furious. First, I am directing a shoot for sizzle reel, or for those not in the business, a piece of advertising to promote a television script to get producers to buy the script and make a show. Two friends have asked me to help them make this intro to their wonderful script and I am happy to dig in. The second thing I am directing is a new musical by Michael Antin entitled Renewal. I have been fortunate enough to work with Michael on the development of this and several other of his musicals and am delighted to direct the Los Angeles premier of this work. Renewal opens August 2, 2015 at the Brickhouse Theatre.

That's not all, but the other stuff hasn't been locked down yet, but those involve a dramaturgy gig and up to two more stage directing gigs. It'll be great if I can get an acting gig in there sometime as well.

Happy June,

Jim
