Dramatic Solutions has launched a weekly work-session where fellow data science focused theatre professionals meet up to discuss and tackle tech solutions in the theatre space. (Bonus, we use a complex point system to track participation.) Our membership is hovering at 6 for now, which is an exciting start. The goal with this group is to establish a community of doers who can support each other, answer questions, debug, and get more done.

Consulting for Rags the Musical was an incredible experience. As mentioned, the show is particularly special to me because of its emphasis on heritage, ancestry, and the struggle we all have in pushing forward.
My friend Moshe Lobel invited me to the opening night of Fiddler Ayfn Dach where I was blown away once again by the emotional power of that show. And in Yiddish no less! Extra coolness for the afterparty at Sardi's!
Christopher Erlendson and I have been focusing on creating an abstracted symbolic immersive performance of Magic the Play (title in revision) as a means of representing magic from cultures across the globe. Our collaborator Sita Chay is heavily involved in this endeavor too. We're thinking something with music and dance! More news to come!
Robert Keller and I have been picking up on our coming production of Jung & Crazy – a wild psychological farce about coming to terms with your true spirits in the face of the ghost of Carl Jung. We'll be producing the show in the Edmonton Fringe Festival in Alberta in mid August! Here we come!
