Hello my friends!
I am so sorry for not posting earlier in the week, but this week has been beyond hectic. Sometimes auditions come very slowly, but lately they have been moving in by the truckload! On top of last week’s postings (“Disco: Diary of a Failed Hooker”, “Dead Cat Cafe”, and my upcoming trip to IMTA), I have just added not one, but three new productions to look forward to!
I have just joined the cast of “Dark Side of the Moon”, a physical piece set to Pink Floyd’s timeless album. The show is directed by Chris Berube, a very good friend of mine and a director I’ve worked with in the past. This experience is surreal; it is truly unlike anything I have ever done before. The show will be at The Next Stage at 1523 N. La Brea Avenue in Hollywood. Although we are already in our second week of rehearsals, we do not yet have a set date for our opening. The plan as I understand it is to open on May 12, but I will have to keep you updated!
Another great friend of mine, Brendan Wynne, is making his directorial debut next door with “Roswell”, and I make a small but enjoyable cameo near the end. The show is every Thursday at 8pm for the next few weeks, and the theater is literally right next door to The Next Stage. They’re both right above the laundromat; you can’t miss them. Be sure to tell the ushers I sent you!
Finally (I know, it’s a lot), a very unique script was passed my way recently for a feature-length comedy. Well, I simply could not pass up doing another film project! I can’t tell you much, but shooting starts sometime in the next two weeks. The plan is to take this film to Sundance, so I will keep everyone informed if that becomes the case.
Also, as promised, more information on “Disco”: The show will be on May 23, and every cent of my personal ticket sales will be donated to the Jeff Griffith Youth Center in Los Angeles. This is a great foundation that helps take underprivileged children off of the streets and away from gang activity. The show itself is a hilarious comedy, and has introduced me to working with my own puppet. What kind of puppet? I think you’ll have to come see for yourself. Once again, the show is only ten dollars, and it will be shown one night only at the Strasberg Institute at 7936 Santa Monica Boulevard in LA.
I know that it seems like a lot of work, but I am always hungry for more! If you have a project going on and are looking for a guy like me, be sure to contact me via my site; I would love to sit down and chat.
Well, that seems to be all for now! If you would like to have more updates on my personal life, be sure to follow me on Twitter, @mrbradleyp, and stay tuned to my YouTube channel! I have a few ideas of what to do with that in the near future.
I’ll see you soon!
