So as we all sit down to enjoy our turkey with our families, we're called to think about what we are thankful for. As I look back at this year, there are a number of folks who I just want to say Thank you to and here they are:
Shelby Company- This scrappy bunch of newcomers has done nothing but amazing work since I first started coming and seeing their shows. They have the rest of the day to finish their Kickstarter campaign and I wish them nothing but the best. If you have a little extra, consider sending a little something. They are really awesome.
The Planet Connections Festivity- Started by my dear friend Glory Kadigan, this festivity has been a launching pad for many new and awesome companies. I have met so many great directors, playwrights, and designers through this festival and look forward to meeting many more.
Broadwayworld.com- This site has hosted my column 99 and Under the Radar for a full year now and it has been a great experience for me. A special shout out to my friend Jessica Lewis who approached me year ago to do this column.
My producing partners on all of my development projects- I would not be able to do any of the things I have done without the support of my many producing partners over the past year. So thank you to Michael Ian Cedar, Jeremy Handelman, Alex Orbovich, Kate Russo, Patricia Klausner, David Greer, Dauna Williams, Sarak Melissa Rotker, Bill Connington, and many more for helping me realize many of my producing dreams.
My long time mentor and the reason I blog, Ken Davenport.
All of the folks who have helped Small Pond either by helping on our productions or just being there for support. Including: Mariette Booth, Allison Broder, Sarah Jane Marek, Sergei Burbank, Peter Dagger, and Rachel Klein.
Last but not least, my family including my mom who reads this blog every day.
And my girlfriend Norah who listens to every "new" idea I have which can be a tiring task. Thanks for believing in me.
And of course Thank YOU for reading this blog.
It's wonderful to know I have readers who enjoy hearing from me. So cut that Turkey, enjoy your nap and of course...
