Published Articles 1/28/13 – 2/1/13; Creating Art, Music, Theater & Joy

This has been an excellent week for me. In fact, the past few weeks have been really nice. I’ve been collaborating with other artists — posing for two local painters, recording vocals for an up-and-coming rapper, being part of a friend’s play about Dutch Jersey City — and I’m having a ball, really.

I’m also making strides with my own stuff. With help from some fantastic readers, I was able to put together one of my most uh, marketable short stories yet to submit to a fiction contest. Hopefully something happens!

Also, this Saturday (tomorrow) I am performing a spoken word piece inspired by Jessica Jones/Power Woman, one of Marvel’s Avengers, for Artists Assemble, a free comic book festival in Union City! Click here for more details.

I’m also busy rehearsing for the reprisal of my one-woman show Kookspeak (which debuted at the So Low Theater Festival and was also part of the Jersey City, Land of the Freeform Festival) that will serve as an opener for Grammy- and Tony-nominated master spoken word poet Reg E. Gaines’s solow show The Last Celebrity. I will perform Feb. 16 at 7 pm; you can see both me and Reg for $10. Click here for more details.

And now, big news — I am proud to announce that my new duet one-act Before, After and Always will be part of the inaugural STAGEfest at the historic Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre! More details coming soon. Until then, I’m preparing my promotional campaign and doing some casting to find my costar. I’m so excited!

Anyhow, without further ado, here are my articles from this week.
