Crystal Adkins interviewed me, and it’s up here. Stop by, leave a comment, and enter the contest to win a signed copy of HEX BREAKER! It was a fun interview.

Yesterday was busy. I was at the theatre by 9:20 AM, and it was already buzzing, with the tour people working on sections of their show on stage, the understudy moving his stuff from his old spot to his new dressing room, and one of the other dressing rooms getting painted. But I got the day work call done before the tour run-through, so I could sit and watch it. It was great to see – very different from our show, because most of the cast is different, and unique and wonderful in its own way.

I had to bolt out after to catch the train back and prepare for the radio interview. It went well, and then I had to get back to work on some other stuff. Never a dull moment.

I’ve got a lot to do today, and then Costume Imp and I are going to see Johnny Gallagher’s solo show tonight at Joe’s Pub. I worked with Gallagher on Broadway, and think very highly of him as both a person and a performer, so it will be good to see him perform some of his own work. This will be the last chance I have to spend time with Costume Imp before he goes out on tour. Can you say “separation anxiety”?

The clothes are packed for Maine; I just have to pack the writing bag this afternoon. I’m off before dawn tomorrow, so I won’t be online for a few days. I have to load some more CDs onto the MP3 player – they just arrived yesterday.

I’m sure I’ll have stories when I get back. In the meantime, have a great week!
