Thrilled to announce that I’m receiving a Jerome Fellowship from the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis in 2017-18. Can’t wait to get settled in the Twin Cities, start writing a storm, and looking forward to meeting my fellow fellows and for all the great work to come.
WordPress gave me my stats for the year.
I had 11 views that originated in Russia and the most searched-for terms in 2013? “we declare you a terrorist.”
Clearly, FSB knows I’m out here.
I also had 4 views that originated in Pakistan, 4 views from India, and another 4 from Saudi Arabia. And 2013 featured me writing a 10 minute play with CIA agent characters set in Pakistan.
So I guess that ISI, JIC, and GID know I’m out here too.
And then there was Better Homes & Homelands at the Drama League’s DirectorFest, helmed by the exquisite Nicole A. Watson, who–most exciting of all–did me the honor this year of saying, “Yes, she would.”
Which reminds me, we should add NSA and the “Subdivision Committee” to this list because they’re watching everybody.
With stats like those, I guess that 2013 was a pretty successful year and I’m way more popular than I thought.
So Happy New Year to one and all and here’s to more peaceful, political dissent and theatrical dialogue in 2014.
Hope to see you all soon!
Adam Szymkowicz is a mad man — a mad man playwright with a dream to interview every playwright he can get his hands on. So he’s not a mad man you have to be scared of. He’s the good kind of mad man, like Edison or Bell or Einstein or…Batman.
That’s it: Adam Szymkowicz is the playwright Batman.
And I’m his latest interview.
The production in LA is going very well, and everyone except for this guy is very excited about it. Yes, that’s what is known in the review world as a “pan;” but I can’t help it if I’ve sullied the Greeks with things like sex and swearing. I’m sure they were all pretty puritanical, didn’t fuck around or stuff like that. That must be why their myths are all so dull.
And if you attempt to buy tickets but find them all sold out, come to the theater anyway. We’ve had no-shows at every performance, so if we can, we’ll squeeze you in at the last moment.
I will be at all performances, so I hope to see you there.
P.S. Thoughts on that head-shot? Funny background, but that’s my backyard so it seems…appropriate(?)
Down in the face of God is a real boy at last.
The play opened Friday night to a sold out house, rave reviews, and (apparently) a party that Dionysus himself would have approved of. I fly to LA Tuesday and I’ll be there for the final 2 weeks of the run so come out, see all the hard work AthroughZ put in, and experience this amazing production.
Click here to get your tickets, and get ’em soon! It’s a small house and a very limited run. This coming weekend, May 24-26, is the time to go! For one, I’ll be there and seeing the full production for the FIRST TIME EVER. Also, tix are going fast for the final weekend and we need bodies for those middle shows. And finally, if you don’t attend…..you will be cursed and you won’t know how to deal with that because you haven’t see my play.
Sneak peak time……
See you all next weekend.
