My Christmas Party/Reading is this Saturday. I'm excited!

The highlight of this party/reading for me will be to finally hear the entire script of JULIA & BUDDY read by the perfect cast, Claire Warden and Daniel Genalo. Individually they are both impressive performers (and yes, I do appreciate Daniel's awesome abs), but together they have amazing chemistry. The main worry is that since they are both so good, they might make my script seem better than it is, and I won't edit what needs to be edited. The entire point of any reading of a brand-new play is to find out what doesn't work - a concept that I could never get 95% of all the people who ever came through NYCPlaywrights to understand.

But what the hell - it's so exhilarating to see two actors create a synergistic artistic happening together. I'm going to sit back and enjoy the ride.
