2013: The Year of Adventure

Wow, a lot of stuff has happened since I’ve posted last. First, I hope your year is going fine. Sincerely.
Alright, there is a lot of news to get through, so let’s start slogging:

Little Women-I am in the midst of adapting Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic Little Women. I’m directing the play as well (auditions are a week from today), and it’s going up in April. Girls of all ages, get excited.

Publication-Smith & Kraus offered to publish my short play Minutiae which was produced by Chicago’s Point of Contention Theatre in 2011 and Oakland’s Pan Theatre last October. It’s also going to be produced at the East Bay Arts High School in February.
It’s about two simple organism fighting about a patch of the ocean floor billions of years ago.
The play is getting snuggled in an anthology entitled The Best Ten Minute Plays of 2013, which is a great title for my ego.

Lemons at San Jose Rep-My one-act Lemons, supposedly a metaphor for the ills of Capitalism through the guise of a lemonade stand, will go up in April at San Jose Rep as part of the their Emerging Artists Lab. It was already produced in March last year by FABUM, Inc. in Washington, D.C.

Dream Project-Not necessarily the project of my dreams, but a project about dreams (although it is kinda a dream project in the former sense). I will be working with FABUM of D.C. again this year on an immersive theatrical experience that travels through your dreams. Oooooooooo!

Speakeasy-This is still chugging along and should be coming to a discrete location near you this fall.

AllVoices-My journalism career is also taking off this year. I’m covering Macworld this weekend (the Apple fan’s wet dream) and I am officially covering tech, science and business for Allvoices.com.

Whew, my fingers. Gotta love updating. Hang around the site. If you see something you like, get at me. We’ll work something out, I’m sure.

With all my love,
Barry Eitel
