Have a cookie and let’s suck face.
Like I said before, I write plays. I also direct them. God help us all, right? Hide your kids, Schwartz is on the loose.
Except your opinion hurts. I am a father too you know.
We all have our own personal fears in life: Clowns, Aliens, The 2012 Presidential Election.
Yet we have to face them. Especially when you are in theatre.
What does that mean for you?
Well, you have to take a risk. And Not for FAME. Who the heck wants that?
We have to take a risk because if we don’t? We become stagnant. We keep repeating the same traits over and over again. We never grow.
So do the thing that scares you the most. Dance naked on the stage! Write a piece you thought you never could! Push your art as far as you can possibly take it.
Because then and only then will you pass the biggest hurdle that could ever stand in your way: Fear.
My next play in New York City is called Accidental Incest: Someone for Everyone. It has nudity, naked dancing, and hopefully won’t end my career in the arts forever. It is going on in June at the Bleecker Street Theatre in New York City as part of the 2012 Planet Connections 2012 Festivity. Yes, I am shameless plugging away. And yes you should see it.
So now comes the question. Will I put my money where my mouth is?
