collaborating with shane russeck is always a pleasure. he recently called with a concept that began, “under a table, hiding, freaking out…” say no more.
to watch someone imagine and then create beautiful work at a dizzyingly rapid rate – it is both inspiring and bewildering. in a VERY short amount of time (about 2 months) evelyn leigh has fashioned some amazing new work – much of which is completely functional – and all of which is mind-melting….

with the launch of premature the show fast approaching (october 15th – gadzooks!), the team reconvened in nyc to film episode two. under the direction of the multi-talented, quick-witted and fearless jessica brickman, we tackled the latest script, scribed by our unstoppable star, grace rex. it goes without saying that a project like this could never happen without the constant contributions from our massively talented (and consistently strange) band of regulars, but there was also an addition of many new team members, mostly behind-the-scenes, and their work was freaking magnificent. camera and sound teams were in a fierce battle over who had the best hair. cinematographer, jac cheairs, nailed it down, while our sound team (led by the great chad sonenberg) caught every subtle sigh paul perroni (denzel) had to offer. keep your little eyes glued to prematuretheshow.

caffeine theatre was where i got a second chance to be an actor. friend and founder of caffeine, jennifer shook, got me involved at the inception – i was able to work on many of the company’s first productions and have kept involved from afar as they have gone on to greater and greater things. but, as all good things do, caffeine theatre has come to an end. chicago bids farewell to a brilliant collective where obscure and language-driven texts could come to life.
