Born out of a silly idea of having very emotional moments with inanimate objects on stage, I wrote and performed my very first solo show, The Good, the Bad, and the Monkey in 2009. I was fortunate enough to have the very talented, Jen Ellison direct me in this endeavor. I previewed it on the [...]
Whew! The short run of The Good, the Bad, and the Monkey has come to a close. I am very grateful that it was a success! I've said (typed) it before, and I'll say (type) it again.... A solo show can't be done alone. It truly takes so many people supporting the performer to make [...]

Because there are three sock-monkeys whose dialogue the audience "fills in" in [...]
