...and they're pretty freakin' awesome.

I could not be prouder of this cast, this crew, and this company right now - I think we've made something really special here. 


...and on a purely personal fight choreographer note, I'm gratified to see things like, "the sword play was excellent" and "a 100 percent chance of awesome girl-on-girl broadsword fights."  I'm so invested in this violence that I haven't been able to see it with an unbiased eye - it's good to know that complete strangers think it looks good!

I just got back at around midnight last night from a marvelous trip to Michigan. rickthefightguy and I went up there to... get this... be part of a pirate boarding party! On an actual boat! squeeeee!

Technically speaking, I was not a pirate - I was one of the waiters defending the ship from pirates, while the local Chamber of Commerce looked on in dismay at what was happening to their river touring boat. But it was great stuff - we had 17 people, brawls going up and down both levels of the ship, and one girl who even got tossed over the side into the water. (I heard, but did not see, her come splashing out of the water, soaked to her skin, shrieking "PIRATES!!!" as she splashed off to the relative safety of the crowd of onlookers. Hee.) And working with John Lennox and the local gang from Lansing (Art of Combat, http://artofcombat.org/public/thespis/index01.htm ) was a real pleasure – they are a bunch of fun, skilled, and very professional fighters.

It was a fabulous break from the work week, even if it did involve ten hours of driving between the end of the work day on Tuesday and midnight on Wednesday. But I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

And now, back to the grindstone...

I'm doing some research trying to find stories of historical/mythological woman warriors that would make good one-act plays. Does anyone have any favorites that I should look at? So far I've been thinking about Bradamante from the Charlemagne stories (*sigh* Bradamante, you're my hero!) but would love to hear other suggestions.
