I have taken part in songwriting, producing and directing music for a new contemporary rock play named “Runaway Home”, script written and play directed by acting coach/author Darren Butler. The opening performance of the play was October 8th at the Studio One Playhouse in Decatur, Alabama. After great feedback from the initial workshop performances, and positive reviews for the play and the cast from some major theater sources, (and some revisions based on the feedback we got), I think it's a play you will want to see. We are awaiting adjudication from the Richard Rogers Award, we're submitting it to other contests and will probably be taking it to New York for the Fringe Festival. I am very excited as we present the final initial run of this play in Darren's dinner theater.
It will run in Decatur, Alabama through this end of this February, Friday and Saturday nights at 6:30pm. Come see it and tell us what you think!
The music runs the gamut from hip-hop, pop, rock, latino, r&b, to punk rock and other cool weirdness. We cut the tracks for the play at engineer Ronny Light’s studio, Nashville. For details, log onto http://www.studioonedecatur.com/RunawayHome/index.htm .
