Theatre and Karaoke

I was invited to the Family and Friends performance of "The Story" at Theatreworks on Monroe. It is a great play. My fellow PSP (Pittstop Productions) All-Star Lavita Brooks (The Survivor, What Goes Around) is in the play, as is my good friend Madeleine Rogers (A Cop, a Snitch and a Stripper Named Shane) and Kimberley Moore, who I saw in a production of In the Blood at the University of Memphis last year. The basic plot centers around the murder of a white teacher by a black person. The white teacher's wife survives the attack, but she is a suspect, and the African-American reporters at this newspaper attempt to uncover the truth, or "The Story", if you will. LaVita played several characters and was very memorable. I was proud of all three ladies and the entire cast. I also got to meet LaVita's dad, which was cool. I strongly urget you to see "The Story", playing now at Theatreworks on Monroe. All of LaVita's fellow actors, please support this play. And to the cast of Shane, we have two castmates in this producton, Madeleine and LaVita. I think it's cool to support other actors. I have done this, and I have also greatly appreciated the support from people who have viewed my projects even when they were not acting in them.

My last stop was at Jordan's. Forrest Pruett (Delusions, Almost Made) was there, as was Lina Frtische (Curbside Confessions) and Joe Smith (Delusions, Arrogant Dead People). Joe was bartending. Forrest perfomed "If You Could Only See" and I struggled through Luther Vandross' "Superstar". I won't be performing that song again for awhile.

I don't know what the weekend holds. Maybe I'll film, maybe I won't. Who knows? Be easy, readers.

I hate I missed Lavita's opening night, but I will be at one of the performances.

...And as for you Markus, no you didn't butcher Luther Vandross' Superstar! :'(

Thank you Markus for the great review! You are a good friend and a credit to the acting community.
