2019 WYSIWYG Update!

Here's several pictures of the PCTF awards ceremony at the Abrons Art Center in New York last year. What a great night! We're just about ready to start some table reads of Eigg so I'm sure that project will start picking up momentum now. As far as the status on WYSIWYG, there's been some tweaks here and there and I've been working with a dramaturg in New York on the script, my guess is we'll see another production somewhere on the Manhattan Island in 2020 so WTF...stay tuned! ;)

Mother's Day Promise

A lot of people might think this is crazy, but when I created my "bucket list" I included meeting Beethoven. Most people would say "that's impossible", but I've always enjoyed his music and my mother said I could do anything I set my mind to. So it seemed only appropriate to show off my time machine prototype on Mothers' Day...WTF...stay tuned, I'm serious about this!

The end of one chapter the beginning of another

Here's a picture of my Baldwin D-9 going back to American Classic Pianos. They're based in Denver, Colorado and I've known Warren and Holly for a long time. They let me change my piano every five years or so and it's always sentimental to see them go. I composed the majority of  "The Age of Sisyphus" and "The Isle of Eigg" on the D-9, so it was a productive piano. Can't wait to get my hands on the next one though. Each instrument has it's own personality and it comes out in your music. I think it's important to reinvent your music periodically and changing your piano is a subtle way to help you accomplish that.

Dramatist Guild and The New Play Exchange

Remember the scene in the movie "The Jerk" when Steve Martin gets so excited because he sees his name in the telephone book. So, I sort of felt the same today when I created my profile page on the Dramatist Guild and New Play Exchange websites. "WTF...I'm somebody"!

Dramatists Guild

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to participate in more music theater groups and organizations. It's so cool to meet and work with new people with similar challenges. Here's the letter I received from The Dramatist Guild in New York. WTF...I'm in and I'm loving it! :)

Eco-friendly QR Codes for our audience members with smartphones

It's an honor to be designated as one of this year's most eco-friendly off-Broadway productions. Moving forward, we'll plan to setup QR Codes to all our program guides and hope that you will too. Try it out now, WTF...it's so easy...and yes, we love our trees in Colorado!
WYSIWYG QR Code
SISYPHUS QR Code

QR codes are machine-readable optical labels first designed in 1994 for the automotive industry in Japan. Typically, a smartphone is used as a QR code scanner to convert the code into some useful form (such as a standard URL for a website, thereby obviating the need for a user to type it into a web browser).
