SONNETS opens a week from TODAY!

My summer came and went as I spent my caffeinated time rehearsing, running laps around PQ, and picking up randon heart shards that I didn't know were missing.

Last week I completed my first grant application and I'm super excited. I'd had some of it pre-written which helped a TON, but at the time I was exhausted, but determined. The Omnivorous Project was submitted --complete with bibliography and sample questions. It could be likened to someone quitting smoking whilst trying to pass the Bar exam.

Yet and still, my "growth project" shall be revealed next Friday.

Get your tickets here.

*Featuring: Heather Acs, Jay Buol, Virma Caramia, Giselle D'Souza, Candice Fortin, Sibon Gile, Elisa Gonzales, Meredith Hackett, Ei Hashimoto, Gustavo Heredia, Leif Huckman, Alec Knox, Eliza Mack, Robert Maisonett, Sierra Marks, Jeronimo Medina, Sharla Meese, Elia Monte-Brown, Katie Naka, Michelle Navarrete, Franco Pistritto, Omri Rosenzweig, Giack Selloni, Susie Thiel, Mercedes Vasquez and Miriam Wasmund

And while you're at it, check this out.

You never thought that hip hop would take it this far.

My homegirl, Allison has a new blog and she recently added a HILARIOUS post with the trailer for the Biggie biopic. I had no idea that it was in production. It looks fine, I guess. The director, George Tillman Jr. could have roughed things up a bit. And the actor playing B.I.G.--Jamal "Gravy" Woolard-- needs some more age or experience....something. I'm sure he's done a bang up job as a performer, but physically I'm not buying it. Biggie possessed a certain demeanor beyond his shrouded eyes and heavy build. He was the real deal. Take a look and draw your own conclusions.
