And here's that RAVE review I hoped we'd get...

And we get a RAVE from Time Out Chicago. Four stars! Here's the link:

Time Out Chicago Review of 'The Last Unicorn.'

Peter S. Beagle also loved it- so much that it's looking like this version might become the official version they license to other companies. Stay tuned for more info on that- nothing's set, but it's pretty exciting!

Thanks so much to everyone that has come to see the show this weekend, and took the time to tell me how much you loved it. I've never had a reaction like this to a show of mine before, and I'm humbled and grateful.

To be fair, the show hasn't been universally adored. One critic in particular has written a really scathing review. What can I say? It's kind of like in the story- not everyone can see a Unicorn. There will always be someone who looks at something unique and magical and just sees a white mare.

But if you're reading this, I think you're one of the people who will really see the Unicorn. Prove me right, and come see the show.

In honor of opening

I've just gotten home from the opening night of "The Last Unicorn," and I'm a little giddy. Possibly in part from lack of sleep- I hope to remedy that soon. In the meantime, here are some awesome production photos from the show. They were taken by friend of the company TC McGrath. Enjoy!

A preview...

After rehearsal last Monday some of the actors and I got together and shot a little preview for The Last Unicorn. The sound is a little spotty, but I wanted to give everyone a taste of what's in store, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. We decided to film the scene where Mommy Fortuna encounters and captures the Unicorn for her Midnight Carnival. Check it out!
