I haven’t written and directed a play since I was 16 years old. Just know (without me revealing my age) that that was a long time ago.
Even then I dreamed of writing and directing a show in NYC but since I was not at that point in my life I directed plays at St. Paul’s.
Someone told me that directing is like riding a bike – if you did it before you can do it again (you never forget)
But it feels more like I passed my driving test and got my license and now I’m driving my first car. I remember I just held onto the wheel tightly and hoped I didn’t hurt anyone or myself.
Well, It’s Not Stamped On Your Forehead, is not an actual life or death situation. But it is much like having a car is the beginning of a life where you have a car and know how to drive because writing and directing an off Broadway show is the beginning of my life knowing how to write and direct an off Broadway show.
