Was that title click-bait…y… enough for ya? Has the pure, unadulterated intrigue set in? “What does ‘THIS’ in the title – in all-caps, nonetheless – actually mean? Tell us, you bastard!”
Well, it means I’m doing something a little different, at least for me – I’m returning to the stage!
I’m talking about acting here, not a music performance… even though, with the whole pandemic thing, it’s been a while for that, too. But not as long. See, the last time I did stage acting of any sort, I would have been in either elementary or jr. high. And without doing actual math, let’s just say that it’s been a while, and that stretch of time can probably get insurance discounts and rent a car.
“But Josh, aren’t you an actor already?” you may be asking. Yes, but I’ve been acting strictly in film projects, not on stage. I always joke that I get multiple takes to get it right. And yes, while there is a good bit of overlap between the two, there are also some differences in how the craft is done.
So here are a few details – the play is called Sweat, and it is written by Lynn Nottage. This is a Cloverdale Playhouse production directed by Georgette Norman. They announced the cast and crew yesterday on their Facebook page (image below as well.)
So yeah… this will be different. I’m usually helping shoot the promo video or doing photography for the plays there, not actually getting into character.
I hope you’ll make plans to attend!
In other news… this past Saturday marked the one-year anniversary of the release of my fourth studio album Carry the Wounds. It’s kind of weird putting an album out and not being able to book shows to promote it, but again… pandemic. But hey, here’s a couple of music videos from songs off the album, if you haven’t seen them already:
