You may have noticed I've been spouting Smiths / Morrissey lyrics on Twitter and Facebook for LOLZ, its because I've got my first real directors gig on a show called Unhappy Birthday. Back on the 3rd January 2011 Amy Lamé asked me to attend her birthday champagne fest in a basement flat in Kings Cross (she'd have you believe its Bloomsbury), along with many bottles a question was popped that saw the next year and a half in and out of rehearsal rooms, charity shops and rich friends second homes - 'will you be my director?'
Jo Good asked me yesterday what rehearsals were like, I responded '...nice we just eat nuts and listen to a lot of Morrissey really'. I want you to come and see this, my first moment in the directors chair but hopefully not my last.
