The Going's On's....
LA TIMES CRITIC's CHOICE!!!!
American Misfit at The Boston Court
by Dan Dietz
Directed by Michael Michetti
April 13 - May 12, 2013
Based on a chapter of American history they never taught us in school, this fierce, funny fantasia with music tells the post-Revolutionary War story of the Harpe brothers, who launched a murderous rampage as a counterrevolution against the new democracy. American Misfit explores our addiction to revolution as the story skips like the needle on a record through our American rebels from Washington to Reagan, viciously skewering the big American idea of change — all swinging to the rhythms of Rockabilly music!
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING!!
"If the show were a person, I would make violent love with it."

OUR LADY J'S 'TRAIN TO KILL' GOSPEL CHOIR BACKSTAGE
"I just LOVE listening to Our Lady J sing!"
"Seeing New York icon Our Lady J is like being wrapped in an electric blanket, providing warmth and security, but with the danger of becoming too hot to touch."
"Virtuosic! Our Lady J is a big, brassy blond, with an abiding love of gospel... Don't dismiss Our Lady J as a transgender novelty act! The critics' favorite bowls the audience over with her gospel stylings and pianistic skills."
-Time Out New York
"Powerful! Our Lady J knows how to rock the house. She will have you singing her praises long after the show is over."
-The Village Voice
-New York Magazine

KjO's June Adventure: Santa Fe And A Play
SPENT the month of June in the far reaches of my imagination as I physically gazed into the expansive New Mexican desert landscape - Thank You Georgia O'Keeffe for the creative model. That's right folks, did my pushups in the Soul Gym of the desert, I'm puttin' pen to paper about it, and it's all getting hashed out on a stage in LA in 2013. That's That. A Very Special and Heartfelt THANK YOU to My Dear Friend and Humanist Ally, Alexandra Wilson, for making this adventure not only possible, but HAPPEN. I love ya Al.
This drawing, Jack Rabbit, was generously created for me by a brilliant artist at @bad_drawings about my creative process for this project. No, I didn't dream Jack Rabbit up in a meditation. He was physically present and came to me on a mountain top in Montana during a very incredible meditation session shortly after spending a month training with some PHENOMENAL masters in New Mexico. All will be revealed in the project which lies ahead. In the meantime, please enjoy this rad creation by @bad_drawings.
THANK YOU SO MUCH @BadDrawings. I GIANT HEART YOU!
