Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I wanted to let you know how the ’09 tour is coming along so far.
I applied for the CAFF Lotter, which would allow me to do any Fringe Festival I wanted, as long as I did at least five. I was first on the waiting list, but then all five International companies accepted.
Rogue Festival, Fresno – Feb. 26 – Mar. 7 – I’m in!! Tell all your Fresno friends I’m Going Back to Cali.
SF1 Festival, Solo Festival, Seattle – March – I applied and got turned down. Budget cuts.
Orlando Fringe – May – I applied and they just had their lottery, and I’m #12 on the wait list. So it doesn’t look good for Orlando, although…
UNO Festival, Victoria, BC – May – I am now freed up to apply for this. Going to have to move quick, though. This is a well regarded solo festival.
Montreal Fringe -June – I always hear how much fun Montreal is, although it’s tough to do business there. I have not applied, but I still have until Dec. 1. Problem is it overlaps with Ottawa.
Ottawa, ON – June – I applied. Lottery is Dec. 3.
Winnipeg, MB – July – I applied. Lottery is Dec. 18.
Saskatoon, SK – Jul-Aug – I’m in!
Edmonton, AB – August – As long as they received my application in time, I applied. Lottery is Dec. 1.
San Francisco, CA – September – I want to do this as opposed to Vancouver, which runs at the same time. I still have time to apply.
I’m also planning on shows in LA, Roanoke, VA, and Wellsboro, PA. And, after way too long away from New York stages, I think it’s time to come back, do guest appearances, improv, and stand-up. Yes, stand-up! I want to get involved with a community of performers and artists, instead of being a lone warrior, which is what I tend to be at times.
