On Saturday I and fellow Treasure Island castmates Patrick Blashill, Rob McLean and Sean Sinitski along with fight director Geoff Coates sat down for the Talk Theatre In Chicago podcast to discuss our show and the art of staged violence. It was a huge thrill for me as I’ve never been interviewed before. The interview took place in Lifeline Theatre’s rehearsal space, and you can hear the El going by the window every couple of minutes.

We followed this interview with our first two-show Saturday of the run. By the time I got home that evening I was so tired I couldn’t even sleep. I’ve lost twelve pounds since we started tech. And if we can maintain audiences like these for the next few weeks we’ll probably extend the run into November. By the time we close I should be lookin’ GOOD.
