"Gagtime!" a 10-minute play/musical
« on: March 22, 2019, 08:04:18 PM »
Hi everybody,

For those in the Boston area, my new 10-minute play/musical “Gagtime!” will be performed at the Boston Theater Marathon XXI on May 19, 2019.  I'll know what time the play will run and which theater company will perform it within a few weeks and post it on this thread.

Hope to see you there!

Richard

Very exiting, Doc G! 

Congrats, and I look forward to reading the play since I don't live nearby: )

I wanna know when you're going to be on Broadway, Doc G!

This is amazing; I'm so excited for you.

I keep wondering if All Those Moments and Dialogues in giving therapy have led to an explosion of conversations in your head, a creative collection of Humans Talking that just HAS to come out. So in your wisdom, you have found the specific creative outlet that is absolutely perfect for this kind of experience. Playwriting!

Just
genius.

Hugs and kudos,
Hops

Thanks, Lighter!  I’ll let you know when/where I publish it.   Sorry you can’t be there!

And thanks, Hops!  As you know I’ve spent 40 years intimately observing human beings, inside and out.  So, I guess I have something to write about!  “Gagtime!” is the first sitcom that I have written—I wrote it a couple hours before the submission deadline just to have a piece in the “contest.”  But as one of my dear patients reminded me, the play is all about subtext—and certainly, repetition.  So the only crucial “element” of human behavior (as I write in my book) that is missing is “character.”  Two out of three ain’t bad, so I shouldn’t feel like I completely sold out in order to get the play performed!

Thanks, again, to both of you,

Richard
