I’ve been working on a solo show I plan to take to Edinburgh Fringe in summer 2018. While I had a rough draft written, I wanted something to help me start whipping it into performance shape. Enter Peter Michael Marino’s class Flying Solo at the PIT-NYC. Peter has a pretty amazing understanding of both solo performance and comedy – his work has included several shows he’s taken to Edinburgh and beyond, as well as a musical that opened in the West End – and it’s been a terrific experience working with him. I’ve made a living as a writer for a long time, but it always amazes me how much more I have to learn. Peter is a great teacher. My writing has changed.
Our class show is this Thursday at 8:30 (tickets available here) and I’ll be premiering my first theatrical monologue.
