So I have the dates and it is happening. The People in my Hips play will be returning to Manhattan Rep this April.
We are opening Wednesday April 6 and then playing Friday April 8 and Saturday April 9, all at 7 pm. Hopefully, there will be demand so we can extend it on-going.
I am totally rewriting the play and adding the NEW ending. It is going to be awesome. I am very excited.
Just yesterday I photoshopped the new People in my Hips logo. I love it.
Check out THE DARK MAN and BABY KEN on the Logo. And I look pretty cool as Shiva, huh?
When I look at this, I have to say, it affects me. The Dark Man's photo is adapted a bit and changed, but this is the God honest truth, I really used his image. That's him from over 40 years ago. Wow, the wonder of the Internet. Scary too.
So why did I make this choice, to use his image? Because this is a true story. I can't announce his name for I really don't have proof, but a part of me feels everyone who comes to my show should see this man's evil face.
I guess I am not that enlightened to forgive him. I probably never will. But I don't hate him. He is dead. I am sure he has paid for his RAGE and EVIL 1000 times over in his lifetime. That is just how it works.
But the good news is I FORGIVE MYSELF for making whatever choices that led me down that road so many years ago. I am so damned happy being healed, and also, so damned happy that I finally know the truth about one of the major events which contributed to my crazy PTSD and the People in my Hips.
Ain't life Grand?
