It's begun! After first encountering the book "Topsy: The Startling Story of the Crooked-Tailed Elephant, P.T. Barnum, and the American Wizard, Thomas Edison" in 2013, and knowing that a theatre piece needed to be made, we are now in 2018 and at the stage where it's all coming together. The cast is cast, the show is written, there have been workshops and failures, and residencies, and blood from cutting myself making puppets, and tears of laughter. It's the largest production I have ever taken on and it's daunting but I'm up for the challenge. I couldn't have done it without Lindsay Doleshal and En Route Productions, the amazing producer and super human who encouraged me to bring it to Texas and go for it. And there are tons of others to thank at a later date but I just wanted to say how happy I am for this opportunity.
Here we go, first rehearsal is in one week!
