THE SPEAKEASY opens

shhh!
shhh!

That’s right, ladies and germs–

THE SPEAKEASY is officially open as of tonight. I’ve worked on this piece for the past two years (and it was one of the major reasons I stayed here in California), leading a group of writers in crafting a living novel set in a 1923 San Francisco saloon. It’s been a huge ride leading to drunken shenanigans in Vegas to pick up a roulette wheel and having a “party nap” in a hot tub during a story retreat in Tahoe, as well as being nominally homeless for over half a year.

Oh yea, and we kinda had to reinvent how theatre works to accommodate this beast. It’s been a massive, challenging learning experience, and remains the largest work I’ve ever had a hand in.

All in all, it’s a phenomenal way to start 2014.

Get tickets here.

And here’s some more press information on how the show works:

Let the adventure continue,
