I never knew how hard it was to ASK for things before this project. Sure, as an actor, you're always asking about things:"Hey, is there a part for me? How did it go? What time is my call? Where's the coffee?"
But, as a producer on this show - the number of "asks" is incredible. And let's face it, on a small scale show like this it's begging not asking. It's "I know you're offering me a great discount...can it be for free?

I've worked production contracts, Stock, Dinner Theatre, workshop, HAT, 29 hour readings and 99 seat code. THE BEST TIMES have been in 99 seat. The most artistically fulfilling and the most fun. I'm so glad that after a circuitous route we've found our way back to a 99 seat house for the world premiere of this show. I'm hopeful that we'll become another incubator success that launches out of the L.A. Intimate Theatre world. Spread the word as we start this journey, K? Let's make this another successful launch!
Wow. The amount of work involved in getting this train rolling is amazing! The last few days have been a constant barrage of reaching out to designers, stage managers, producers and such! Lot's of phone calls and emails. And - I know I said this before - but what a wonderful response from everyone! Supportive and kind and enthusiastic! What a GREAT theatre community we have here in L.A.! Tomorrow we start our series of meetings with Music Directors! And we seem to have locked up our Casting Person...ahem...
