The inherent problem with a busy acting life is that I only get time to see the big productions since they have weird performance times like Sundays or Tuesdays. Thu/Fri/Sat more often than not I’m already booked. Too many of my friends’ shows conflict entirely with my own.

Other live events:

  • America’s Got Talent live taping (LA; Wild Card round)
  • America’s Got Talent prelim taping (Seattle)

  • Arthroscopic knee surgery (screw removal)
  • Colonoscopy
  • Colposcopy
  • Capsule Endoscopy
  • Phlebotomies (as always)
  • Emergency room visit & ambulance ride for car accident-induced whiplash in NYC

Looking forward to 2012, I’m already booked with “Where No Man Has Gone Before” for the Seattle Festival of Improv Theatre 2012 and for a May run with a new format. Beyond that, who knows?
