Inventing Avi

I call this: theatre — Posted by KP @ 12:59 pm

I guess it’s about time I talked about my current show. My fall plans were kind of up in the air until the last minute, with a number of possibilities floating around, but I ended up ASM-ing a new Off-Broadway play called Inventing Avi, produced by the Abingdon Theatre Company.

I’m assisting my good friend Josh, which is a always a lot of fun. Josh assured me that if I took the job, the play would keep me laughing, and I haven’t been disappointed. The play is very funny, and our cast of six is amazingly talented. I have to call them out individually: Alix Korey, Stanley Bahorek, Emily Zacharias, Juri Henley-Cohn, Havilah Brewster and Lori Gardner. From day one they have been hysterical, and they have an amazing gift for making a scene laugh-out-loud funny no matter how many times we’ve gone over it in the rehearsal room.

Josh and I have also been working on paperwork a lot. Stay tuned for more details on that.
