Definitely glad I got IN ON IT.
Hey, how are ya? Indeed; it has been awhile. Funny how life can go from zero to 60 in a mere moment (or so it seems). I politely refer to my life as a sort of organized chaos; every day feels as though my brain is being pulled in about seven different directions. I swear, I don't know what I'd do without the day planner and all of the damn lists.
But enough about me. I returned to Austin last Wednesday, hitting the ground running in yet another mad dash to keep up with life. Luckily, I had one particular item on my schedule for the week that I was truly looking forward to - the dirigo group's production of IN ON IT over at The Off Center on Thursday.
Okay, so I'll admit it; I'm a little late in the game. The show has been running for weeks, but this was honestly my first opportunity to catch it. And actually, since Triple Espresso closed back in May, it was also the first production I've seen that I wasn't somehow involved with since... well...2005. I know it sounds pathetic, but you have to also understand that between FronteraFest, Not Clown, Triple E, various film stuff, etc., etc. - well... no life (or too much life; I haven't decided which).
Where was I? Oh yes - mad dash. So Thursday comes, and I am admittedly exhausted. Fatigued. Almost contemplating rescheduling attending the show for a much needed rest. But I didn't, and I must say, I don't regret that decision for even the slightest moment. I thoroughly enjoyed the production from start to finish.
I have had the humbling opportunity to work with both Scotty Roberts and Robert Faires in the past, and it was such a pleasure to watch them perform together. I loved the charm, the humor, the relationship that these two engaged me in, as well as the thought-provoking circle that Lowell Bartholomee's direction of MacIvor's script led me to. My fondness for the dirigo group is never led astray.
Thanks for a wonderful evening. I want to be moved - I want to laugh, to cry, to simply feel the warmth of my smile spread across my face, and this show is like slipping softly into a warm bath.
All the best.
P.S. - And if any of you want to catch it, three performances left - http://www.thedirigogroup.com/
