As a newspaper feature writer in the 90s, I cranked out many a puff piece and travelogue, likewise many a theatre and restaurant review. Even some actual reportage.
I left the newsroom to become an ad agency “writer/strategist” and that gig lasted about two Earth orbits around the sun. Which brings us to “Pimp My Reality,” the ufology column I wrote for Technorati.com, not to be confused with any of the plays that I wrote and scored for kids. Eight are listed below.
You can read a magazine-style sample of my work by clicking here: “Confessions of a Facebook Fraud.”
Rudolph Rides Again
Practically Peter Pan
Done without fly rigging, but with a chorus of Wienerbun Indians led by Chief Chilidog … ramalama-ding-dong. (Audio: Hook’s plan to trap Pan.)
The Prince and the Pauper
Oliver Twist, With a Twist
Bears a vague resemblance to something Charles Dickens wrote. Takes place in a courtroom. (Audio: Dickens speaks from the grave)
Baillie’s Babes In Toyland
Victor Herbert was soooo long-winded. I used his Victorian operetta as the basis for this 45-minute adaptation. (Audio: instrumental intro)
RG’s Romeo & Juliet
This adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy has caused plenty of weeping in public school cafetoriums across the Southeast.
