Last year, aka 2022, was really had on a lot of people–including many of us in the arts. For me, the year included a show closed due to covid, a second case of covid for me (and first for Tim) from that production, and a lot of stress around covid testing for two more shows in the course of the year.
But you know what? It also included working with a lot of truly wonderful people, and enjoying some gorgeous Florida weather, too! I still managed to work on three excellent productions and narrate a wonderful new novel. So I have a lot to be grateful for despite the challenges. Here it is 2023 and as a certain Sondheim character famously declares: “I’m still here!” I don’t take that for granted.
Farewell, then, 2022, and welcome 2023! What do I see on the horizon? Contracts aren’t signed yet, but I’ve been offered another Shakespeare production (YAYYYYYY!!), been asked my availability to shoot a reboot of a promising pilot (YAYYYYYY!!), and may have something seasonal next holiday season as well. Time will tell! And I am also moving forward with my first full-length novel and my first blank verse comedy; I’m incredibly excited about both.
Stay tuned—and I wish you and yours a safe, healthy, happy, abundant new year!
