I’m incredibly proud to have spent the month of September as Assistant Director for MIllikin University’s production of HEADSHOT!. The MB ADAPTORS Company spent a solid six weeks developing the show as part of a creative residency, and the students and faculty were incredible in the support and generosity of spirit. The show has had many iterations with smaller and larger casts, and this iteration inspired us to add entirely new groups of characters to the mix. A manic emcee strung out on Hollywood glamour makes her appearance throughout the show alongside spirits of the fame factory and the omnipresent “mission control” stage management band armed with musical instruments. Existing material was expanded and redeveloped, and many new images and scenes were crafted with the collaboration of the Millikin artists themselves. The experience was tremendously fulfilling and I’m so grateful to Kari Margolis, Tony Brown, MB ADAPTORS Company, and of course Millikin University for making this phenomenal experience possible.
