As many of you already know, in addition to photography my other huge passion in life is theatre. This past February, I directed a play that I spent a full year prior writing and re-writing. It’s called Messenger No. 4 (or… How to Survive a Greek Tragedy). I’ve been obsessed with greek tragedy for quite a few years now, and Messenger No. 4 was a culmination of that obsession. The play is a melting pot of time travel comedy, Shakespeare and Greek tragedy. I’m happy to say that last June, it was nominated for two Austin Critics Table Awards for Production of a Comedy and the David Mark Cohen New Play Award. Now, I’ve been nominated again for a B. Iden Payne Award for Outstanding Direction of a Comedy. The fight choreography done by the fabulous Andrew Rodgers (who also played Messenger No. 4) has been nominated as well.
Working on that show was one of the most rewarding theatrical experiences I’ve ever had. Oh, and I also took the photos for it too. 😉 See below!
