Tonight at 6:30 and tomorrow at 1:00pm, you can catch my latest play, The Immortal Jellyfish, presented by Avalanche Theatre Company as part of the FallFRINGE!
Starring Mary Myers, Alex Alferov, and Johnny, this sci-fi take on an ancient epic combines romance, madness, humor and horror in a 75 minute thrill ride through the human genome… and beyond! Directed by the illustrious Kristen Pilgrim and Stage Managed by the incredible Kathryn Dooley, this piece is the culmination of nearly a year and a half of work and revision.
We hope to see many familiar faces tonight and tomorrow!
So, the fun thing about publicizing my own show and book is what happens when I look at making an e-book… And what I’ve found from several sources is that you can make really interesting productions out of these things! Now, I’m used to an ‘e-book’ being a digital rendition of a book, but I was definitely wrong! “More Movie Than Book” In her 2011 article, “Are e-Books Any Good?” Lisa Guernsey discusses the impact of e-books on children’s learning, and while I ignored the quagmire of benefit versus bane to education, I just kept getting increasingly fascinated by the descriptions of what e-books could do! “huge, easily readable words, brilliant graphics, and an engaging recorded-voice narrator.” Uh. Please and thank you. I was already planning on making DVDs of my show. I was also planning on publishing hard copies of my play. But if I could make a published DVD-audio-book of my play? How cool would that be?! Snap Back to Reality Now, the world premiere of The Immortal Jellyfish opens in just 7 days, so I have a lot of work on my plate already. We’ve got lights, projections, sound, a set, some props, costumes, and actors to work with in our upcoming tech week. Holy hannah. All that said, as appealing as an e-book is, I don’t think I’ll have it ready for the run of the show. But something tells me that after show, after the DVDs are made and the scripts are delivered to Kickstarter backers, there may well be an e-book in the works. The Immortal Jellyfish will premiere Nov. 1 at 607 New York Ave NW, Washington DC at Fort Fringe – The Shop as part of the fallFRINGE.
