It started with a true high when the play I’ve been working on, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING based on the book by Rona Jaffe, got a 4 star rating and was the “critic’s pick” in the New York Times and my name was mentioned. I’m not kidding, scroll down to the bottom of the piece and there is my name in lights! This play is so deserving and I can’t tell you how honored I am to have my name attached. The writing, the casting, the direction, the set, the costumes and the fact that the story is utterly timeless make the experience absolutely delicious. As a woman involved in a women led production, I am kvelling. Tickets have sold so fast and furious that we’ve had to add two additional performances — Monday, Oct. 15 at 8:30pm & Saturday, Oct. 20 at 4pm. Order your tickets today.
Then it was time to make some tough decisions. I have officially left my single consulting job of nearly 2-1/2 years and am joining the team of a very interesting start-up on Monday. Letting go of the client I was working for was a tough decision, but a necessary one. As I finalized my work there today, it all felt good. Really good. This is the new company, and I’ll talk more about it in the upcoming month or two.
And MamaDrama, the social media boutique that my partner, Erin Leigh Peck, and I created turned one! We are one year old and we are headed to the New Victory Theater tomorrow for a wonderful event with 20 members of our network. I’ll write more about that on Sunday. I can’t believe that in one year we have worked with the likes of Playwright Horizons, the Public Theatre, Godspell, Annie, Avenue Q, Save the Children, Rosacea Facts with Cynthia Nixon as the spokesperson and more. We’re hoping to announce a fantastic new client next week.
And now it’s the weekend. Sigh. Deep breath.
How was your week?
