Manitou Springs, CO

Just finished doing 4 performances of “Me, My Stuff and I” at the Manitou Art Theatre in Manitou Springs, CO. It’s a great little theatre run by very cool people.

Here I am standing in front of a poster of me (which depicts me holding a picture of me.) And on and on it goes…

The opening night crowd was small, but attentive…

Actually, the shows sold really well, with 3 of the 4 selling out. This was my third time in Manitou, so many in the audience were repeat offenders. And this great bit of press in the Colorado Springs Independent certainly helped.

Yeah…THAT’S kinda what you want to see when you roll into a town, right? Awesome. Thanks Edie Adelstein for the great feature.

Another result of this press is that I was asked to sign the “celebrity” apron at the local cafe where I ate (and took pictures of) breakfast every morning. When you find good food on the road, you get kind of excited. And when you get excited, you take pictures. Or maybe I’m alone on this one. Point is – I have signed an apron. Now there’s no turning back.

Thanks to Jim and Birgitta and Ben and all the staff and volunteers at The MAT for, among other things, having this chair in the dressing room….

I mean really…how could you have a bad show – or a bad anything – after sitting in this chair?
