Deathscribe 2015

On Monday my other company, WildClaw Theatre, capped off months of hard work with Deathscribe 2015. This year’s edition of the annual horror radio play festival was special as it was the first big event for what we’re dubbing WildClaw 3.0 – the company that assembled last summer after a handful of long-time members moved […]

Pebbles

In a scene from the 1965 movie The Agony and the Ecstacy, Michaelangelo (played by Charlton Heston) receives a massive block of marble. He explains that the sculpture he intends to create already exists, hidden within the block. All he needs to do is chip away at the block until the artwork within reveals itself. I […]

Busy Week

I have two shows in previews right now. WildClaw Theatre‘s live horror anthology Motel 666 opens this Friday, and my adaptation of Soon I Will Be Invincible opens next Tuesday at Lifeline Theatre. Normally shows at Lifeline open on Mondays, but the Non-Equity Jeff Awards changed their date, so it was easier for us to move ours. Monstrous […]

L.A. Theater, And Why Chicago Should Care About What’s Happening To It

The incentive was intended to help kickstart […]

Frabjous Day!

First off, I just need to wish a very Frabjous Day to my dear friends Chelsea and Johnny, who welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world yesterday. Her name is Zelda Brienne (HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?) and she shares my wife’s birthday and that’s all just the coolest thing ever. Also in the list […]

The Most Wonderful Night of the Year

Do you people have any idea what time it is?!? I almost missed writing my blog post for the day! Seriously, I’m heading out for Deathscribe in about 45 minutes. Several times today I remembered, “Oh yeah! I still need to write my blog post!” But I was always in some place like on the […]

Shave and a Haircut

A photo posted by Christopher Walsh (@christophermwalsh) on Oct 10, 2014 at 2:43pm PDT Ah. Freshly shorn. I haven’t had a haircut since last spring. I was supposed to shave my head for Monstrous Regiment, but I’d already been cast in Season on the Line when they asked me about it, so I had to check with the SotL team first, […]

“Do You Know What Part of the Whale You Can’t Use?”

“The butthole.” I’ve outgrown the ability to get plastered and party until the wee small hours of the morning. It’s not that late, but it is just late enough to count as Monday, and while emotionally I don’t really feel like it’s Monday yet, I’m going to take advantage of the technicality and write my blog post […]
