"The Lily's Revenge:" a sweet victory.

Performer types know how nerve-wracking it can be to wait to hear about a role. Imagine my torture for three months waiting to hear back about a part in a show!

I can now safely share the amazing & stunning development on which  I've awaited The Word since September and only today put pen to paper for my contract.

I will be starring in the West coast premiere of the Taylor mac EPIC extravaganza "The Lily's Revenge" this spring at The Magic Theater.

And when I say EPIC I am NOT fucking around: this show clocks in at about 4.5 hours, with 5 acts and features cast of 36 performers.

See? EPIC.

Taylor Mac is the flower...I will be playing the curtain. Yep. Feel it.For those who love me and wanna come see the show, start planning now. I mean it. I don't wanna hear you fucking forgot, or whatever. even East Coast peeps have p-l-e-n-t-y of time to get a cheap-ass JetBlue ticket and come out here.  The tickets are already on sale, because its fancy like that.

I'm fucking thrilled to be playing The Great Longing. Which is personified by a theater curtain. Don't worry abnot it. Most of the cast are revolutionary flowers.

You really just have to come see it.

Especially if you wanna see me dance around nekkid.

A bit about the show:
Winner of a 2010 Obie Award!

When a flower falls in love with a blushing bride, can he complete a quest to become a man and win her love? Should he? Playwright and burlesque performer Taylor Mac, along with dozens of local Bay Area artists, tackle love, marriage, and Prop 8–using vaudeville, haiku, drag queens, ukuleles, feminist theories, dream ballets, public dressing rooms, and everything else in Mr. Mac’s theatrical arsenal, A fantastical cornucopia of theatre, party, circus, and social experiment, The Lily’s Revenge cross examines with humor, heart, and irreverence one of our oldest institutions.

The Lily’s Revenge is a rolling world premiere with Magic Theatre, HERE Arts Center (New York), Southern Rep Theatre (New Orleans), and The National Theatre of Scotland.

And if you've got a hard-on for the theater, you oughta get on-board The Producer's Circle.

Yay!

Let the celebrations begin...before I start FREAKING the fuck OUT again :-D
