Enjoyed mixing and mingling with old friends and new at the TCG Conference in Dallas. I witnessed Ayad Ahktar’s conversation with Gabriel Greene. Ayad’s first novel American Dervish won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. I watched him blossom as an actor in the Theatre Program at Brown University in the mid 90’s. It was great to see him in full flower on the stage of the Dallas Performing Arts Center. A pleasure meeting Nick Slie of Mondo Bizarro in New Orleans; spending some quality time with my friend for life Daniel Alexander Jones who will be performing in Austin as Jomama Jones at the Salvage Vanguard Theatre during July; seeing the wonderful actor, Marguerite Hannah who was the original Daughter in my first play, Shaking the Mess Outta Misery; laughing again with Abe Rybeck of Theater Offensive in Boston and giving birthday wishes to Reginald Edmund. I’m not done with theater yet.
