Magic is born when the curtains rise
The Bus Stops Here
I have very fond memories of doing this play. Working on this production was a blast! Loved the cast and every aspect of putting this show together. We soon got full houses, to the point where the play was extended for a two-month run.
We did this at The Met Theater, which happened to be literally next door to James Gammon’s home -- he played Doc -- so coming to rehearsal was a breeze for him. Directed by Patrick McFadden, who was a dream.
Dennis Hayden, who played Bo Decker, was a real cowboy, and if I recall, this his first play. He did a fine job -- talk about perfect casting. My profound thanks also, to Donna Lynn, Melanie Noble, Stafford Morgan, John Herzog, and Taylor Lacher for helping to make this such a vibrant piece of theater.
FYI: I found my Torch Song costume at a thrift shop on Melrose Ave. - a throw away from one of the studios. What a find!
The Sufi Way
Expressing Spirit through Sensuality
I've studied, taught, performed and found joy in dance, and all of its many forms of expression. But the practice of Sufi dancing gave me grounding and tranquility at a time when I felt particularly lost, and without a compass. I've seen it mend hearts and save lives, truly.
