Meet the newest member of The Actors' Gang!

After over a year of study, I was offered an associate membership into The Actors' Gang.  Located in Culver City, CA, the company started by a bunch of UCLA graduate/punk rockers over 34 years ago has produced classical, political, satirical, absurdist--you name it, they've done--in their own style.  And The Style is the name of the game.  Taught to The Gang by George Bigot (prronounced Bee-go) of Theatre du Soleil and transformed of the years, The Style consists of the utilization four emotional states Joy, Fear, Anger and Sadness along with a mix of Viewpoints (Anne Bogart), characters from Commedia dell'Arte and improvisation as the process in which they develop theatrical productions.  The company tours productions internationally, produces free Shakespeare in the Park every summer, and has a diverse array of training programs, mostly notable The Prison Project.  

Possibilities are endless in this community and an artistic home is such a wonderful gift!  Thank you AG!  I look forward to many new experiences, adventures and hard work!

PETA Controversy!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsIcqxlKdFs

One of my improv students at Second City Hollywood works for PETA.  She rounded some folks up to do a few PSAs and this is mine.  The old dog in this video could not be more sweet.  He was also SOOOOOO hot.  Midsummer in Silver Lake (Los Angeles) with production lights.  Ooof!  But, it's PETA, afterall, so the elder gentleman took lots of breaks.  

Check out the PSA but also the comments on both YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsIcqxlKdFs) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/official.peta/videos/10153572734539586/) to see just how irrate folks got about this.  HINT:  watch it until the end.  And if you are not an animist, then watch it again to figure out who we left.  Methinks some folks didn't get the twist.

BTW:  this is the most magical furry friend you'll ever see.  Meet Mary Jane Watson.  THE.  BEST.  DOG.  EVER.
