It’s official – Ecstasy for Everyone! returns to the stage in 2020! Starting with a performance at the Vashon Center for the Arts in Washington (just outside of Seattle) on January 11, 2020 at 8pm as part of a BIG JOY festival weekend to celebrate the visionary filmmaker and poet James Broughton. More dates and locations will be announced as the year progresses, but this is definitely a show to share with many more audiences who are going to need some BIG JOY and Ecstasy for Everyone! in the days ahead.
I’m beyond thrilled to present an updated version of my 2014 show. This newly commissioned production allows me to add in some new poems and expand the show from four to five sections and take place in two acts with an intermission.
One of the best parts is getting to work with an incredible production team. I’m working closely with Art Director Vojislav Radovanovic to create new visual elements, scenic and costume design. And Dr. Kathy Nigh is director and along with Vojislav serving as a skillful outside eye to find and encourage new possibilities. They have been working together on a remarkable theatre production of a show called “Ladybird: A Holiday Posada” at Pasadena City College, and I’m pleased they could work together again on this show.
More details to come – in the meantime – enjoy a few photos from the 2014 production. Photos by Gregory Frye.
