  1. Tuesday "She" on a Saturday

    Saturday, February 10, 2018










    I’ve been cast as a high school principal in a play!  
    It is part of a one-act play festival by new playwrights.  Though no money is involved, I am happy to be in a play.  A young woman wrote it, and I like it.  I deeply appreciate her message.  I hope the director and I manage to work well together.  I will do my part.


    I am performing stand-up the next two Saturdays at the same place. 
    anticipate a lot of the same audience.  So I feel the need to write some new stuff.  I hope I manage to do that.


    I was asked to be part of a special Valentine’s Day event in Brooklyn by my poetry friend Evie Ivy.  I’m not much of a Valentine-y poet, so I told her I might be able to write a prose piece and asked if that would be okay.  She was very welcoming.  Now I still have to write it.  I think it might end up being an anti-Valentine’s Day piece.  Or maybe it will be a collage of Valentine’s Days.  I tend to do okay writing collages.  That is how I put together my pieces for the What Were the Sixties Really Like? shows I was honored to be in.


    Rehearsals for the play begin this Monday.  I am excited.  I’ve never 
    played a high school principal before.  I enjoy new acting challenges.  I’ve played a socialist gardener, a Latina nanny, a corporate mole, a psychic and somewhat crazy woman, a homeless woman, a neglectful mom, a prostitute, a prostitute mother of a prostitute, a good mom, a mom catching her young adult son with a one-night-stand, a prisoner, a substitute teacher, a soldier, a Bible-toter, a nurse, a crack addict, an ex-wife, one of the women in Vagina Monologues, but never a high school principal. 


    After I read the script, I felt encouraged by future female playwrights.  
    This one is Leslie Huynh.

      Mindy, this is fantastic!!

    2. Susan, thank you. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the Valentine's Day event. Just wasn't feeling well. I feel badly for letting Evie down.

      Mindy, I'm sorry you couldn't make it. I hope things worked out OK with Evie, and that you are feeling better! How is your prose writing? Let's email about that.
