“The Lily’s Revenge:” a sweet victory.
Performer types know how nerve-wracking it can be to wait to hear about a role. Imagine my torture for three months waiting to hear back about a part in a show!
I can now safely share the amazing & stunning development on which Â I’veÂ awaitedÂ The Word since September and only today put pen to paper for my contract.
I will be starring in the West coast premiere of the Taylor mac EPIC extravaganza “The Lily’s Revenge” this spring at The Magic Theater.
And when I say EPIC I am NOT fucking around: this show clocks in at about 4.5 hours, with 5 acts and features cast of 36 performers.
For those who love me and wanna come see the show, start planning now. I mean it. I don’t wanna hear you fucking forgot, or whatever. even East Coast peeps have p-l-e-n-t-y of time to get a cheap-ass JetBlue ticket and come out here. Â The tickets are already on sale, because its fancy like that.
I’m fucking thrilled to be playing The Great Longing. Which is personified by a theater curtain. Don’t worry about it. Most of the cast are revolutionary flowers.
You really just have to come see it.
Especially if you wanna see me dance around nekkid.
A bit about the show:
Winner of a 2010 Obie Award!
