Tomorrow We Vote For Our Lovers

Because everyone’s obviously feeling inundated and overwhelmed with all of the political commentary consuming the Internet, I decided this week to give everyone a break, and write something quick and simple about love and romance for Five By Five Hundred instead.

Just kidding. It’s a metaphor, fool.

Now Or Later Opening!

Now Or Later officially opened this past Wednesday, and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Okay, well, I guess we could a little bit, but overall, the reaction has been pretty fantastic for this “heady and provocative” 75-minute political thriller. So here’s a little somethin’ I put together to show off the overwhelmingly positive audience reaction, along with some footage from the production itself:

Gettin’ Personal With Now Or Later

Here’s my first short documentary about the American premiere of Christopher Shinn’s edgy political drama Now Or Later at the Huntington. This video focuses on the personal family relationships at the heart of the play, which is full of eerily prescient political issues, considering it was written 4 years ago.

The show runs October 12 – November 10 at the South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA in Boston, and features my good friend (and fellow Emerson alum!) Grant MacDermott in the lead role. You should probably check this one it now or later (now being before Election Day, obviously).

Now Or Later at the Huntington

Here’s my first video featurette on the Huntington’s upcoming American premiere of Now Or Later, an edgy political thriller by Christopher Shinn that’s set on election night, in which some inappropriate Facebook party photos of the soon-to-be-President’s son get leaked to the public. The show runs October 12 – November 10 at the South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, and features my good friend Grant MacDermott as John, Jr.

Here’s Artistic Director Peter DuBois discussing the play. (More to come, obvi)

An America / Universe / 12 Colonies / Other Fictional World That We Can Believe In

Judging by Facebook feed, we are now officially in the throes of Election Season. Which is kind of like mating season for most animals, but with more blood, and more assholes. And so to lighten to the mood (read: FURTHER contribute to the orgy of political posts that are currently consuming all of your various news outlets and social feeds), I’ve compiled a list for Tor Dot Com of my preferred third party options in the 2012 Presidential Election. This whole two-party system is whack, anyway; when do I get to vote for the Jedi Council?

BONUS: This is the single greatest speech ever written in cinematic history. Oh man.
