Patience is a Virtue

5 Apr

Many people come to Los Angeles thinking, I’ll give it a year then pack my things and go home. But it doesn’t work that way. Atleast, I don’t think it does. If you’re in it- you’re in it for the long haul. That’s what committing to this lovely passion means. That’s what passion means. Three years ago I took a leap of faith and did a play with a theater group that only came into existence with that very play. It was their debut production. This little theater group is now a full blown production company, with which I produce, direct and act in original material. Not to mention they are also some of my best friends. Well, this past weekend was an amazing couple of days for my little group. Not only did we have sold out crowds for the opening of our hit show, ShortLived, in both SF and LA, we also gained a mention in THE NEW YORK TIMES. We were all so excited. Our little company, that can get excited by a mere mention in the East Bay Express got featured in the Arts section of the NY Times! Well, that leap of faith paid off.
