The challenge of producing a theatrical event is forever offering something new to tackle.
After applying for, receiving and paying for the rights to Collected Stories, applying for, receiving and paying for the union contract, securing venues, establishing a PR chain (and learning how to use Mail Chimp!), etc., I am encountering a big bump in the road. Our first venue (1 of 3) has had to cancel our dates and wants to reschedule. This is going to mean negotiating with the licensing agents and the union as well as asking my actor and director to rearrange their schedules. I'm not sure it can be done, but I am setting out today to try and figure it all out. Sometimes I think folks believe that it's easy to "put on a little play"- that don't know what happens before the performance can be done and rescheduling is no big deal. Sigh.
So, today, I am wearing my "Nevertheless, She Persisted" T-shirt (a gift from my BFF) and putting one foot in front of the other.
