I've mentioned it on air a few times, but I wanted to get a plug in here... my wife and daughter have been doing stage productions in local theater for about 3 years, and they've repeatedly tried to get me in on the action. And I tell them "Nope, you don't want me to sing." (And, trust me, you don't.)
The other week, however, she cornered me with a tryout for a play... not a musical, but a play, and in fact it's even a reading (script on stage? HECK YEAH), and on top of that, it's about the one thing I've dedicated the last 12 years of my life to: talk radio.
In fact, that's the title: Talk Radio. You may have seen the Oliver Stone film in 1989, this is the play that the movie was based off.
So following in the footsteps of former morning host Mark Standriff, I've officially made the leap to the stage at the Toledo Rep. While I enjoy the small amount of on-air stuff I do at WSPD, I also do a lot of producing for the station, and that sets me up perfectly as the role of Stu the producer, along with a great cast of folks on the stage with me, some phenomenal people as the callers (including Mrs. Shaggy), and it's directed by Jennifer Rockwood. And I'm asking you to come out. It's only $10 a ticket. Keep in mind, that there's some adult language, so leave the kids at home. Get a sitter. Make it a night. The Toledo Rockets are off anyways, what else are you going to do?
Tickets are going surprisingly fast; don't screw around.
