I still have to write out a precis of all that’s happened for a board member of the Intrepid who Dawn knows to try to salvage her MANGLED BEAM reading in September and it’s just a lot of paperwork and calling and emailing and when this is in addition to other projects, I’m also developing shows for Joe D, Shawn B and helping a little with Dawn and Jimmy’s reading at Amerinda and dealing with three different tour companies, with Maxim calling for a lot of calling and emailing, I can literally spend hours each and every day doing this, and on days when I also work, or rehearse or perform or in some cases both or all three I just end up totally exhausted and then have to get up and more or less do it again the next day, again, often without a day when I don’t have to do anything for days, weeks, months at a time, and this doesn’t count the humble demands of my own life, taking care of personal business and an occasional social outing. I feel like one of those people who retire and have never been busier.
AFFAIR IN HAVANNA
John Cassavetes is a piano man in Cuba who falls for Sara Shane, the pretty wife of a gangster played by Raymond Burr. You can imagine the shenanigans. I like the leads, the actress is okay, and it’s fun to see Celia Cruz pick up the Carmen Miranda flag and run with it.
