HJ Continues...

Hydrogen Jukebox is going fantastically well. I hope you can all make it. It has, unfortunately, kept me in rehearsals almost 12 hours a day since we have such a short time to prepare it. I can't express how much the piece has grown on me. Glass' sensitivity to Ginsberg's text is ironic, witty, and saddly touching all at once. I am blessed with an enthusiastic, talented, and hard working cast. The set is coming together a little more each day and the costumes look great. Today I have meetings with the projection designers and the lighting designer. REALLY - you all should not miss this one, it is an extremely rare opportunity to see this piece on stage.

If you aren't sure about Philip me, I understand the feeling. But, this piece is different, I promise. It is accessibly and profoundly moving.
