IT’S SHOWTIME, FOLKS!

December 11th–8pm–Geery Theater, Sacramento

“I’m Falling Apart!” is an eclectic cabaret show with a sarcastic take on getting old, and finding the mirth in mortality. Through comedy and music, my musical director Marshall Callaway and I have created a show that will resonate with anybody who has ever felt like they were breaking down or going crazy.

The show includes ten complete songs, ranging from the 1940s to the 2000s, and snippets and earworms from twenty more tunes that will stick in your head for days! Plus, there are at least 185 laughs in the show (we counted) ! It’s a show about making choices and taking chances, and about how music just might be the best therapy.

…taking a cold bath with someone you dislike.

Blame It On Rio

Once every four years, we watch over-the-top displays of jingoism, flag-waving, and fear. For two weeks, we get beginning-to-end coverage of celebrities, big crowds and boisterous cheering, with accusations of corruption and cheating thrown into the mix. It’s a special time when the average American sits up and takes notice of things he only cares about once every four years.

I intended to use the paragraph above for a piece about the political conventions, but then I got lazy, then I got distracted, and, well, the conventions were over and I never wrote the piece. The cool thing is, I can use the same paragraph for this piece, about the Olympics. Continue reading
