August DRillNotes

Dear All,

We’ve been absent for a month or so due to technical difficulty – computers crashing, gas leaks – the walls have trembled. But we’re back with a load of info and instead of sending out twelve of these it seemed better send one
with everything in it. So enclosed is news about some things that are going on and some things that have happened and some things that are going to happen.

And if any of the info seems too last minute, let's just say we have no control over New York power outtages.

Without further……
Go See

There are two DrillingCompaNY artists with wonderful shows at
The New York International Fringe Festival.

First Dana Slamp started writing a play for our BOTH project , now two years ago, and
couldn't stop writing. The result was a full length: The Importance of Marrying Wells.
It has Slamp's signature wit, a classic turned on its head a little but just right so we can see it all brand new. She's veteran DrillingCompany director Nancy Chu at the helm
(Nancy directed last summer's 2G and most recently Ms. Santos' Medea for Revenge)
and sound design by Michael Graetzer who has captured so many of our shows with fantastic sound design it would be too many to list.
They are in the big theatre for the Fringe. Great cast! The Lucille Lortel
121 Christopher Street
Friday the 19th at 9:45pm

Okay only three performances remain but The Cross is extremely worth your attention.
Toby Wherry and Laura Strausfeld have teamed up as actor and director.
You may remember their unforgettable version of Rodes Fishburne's Gaggle for PAPER TheLateEdition, again two years ago.

Truly one of the most engaging actors we've had the pleasure of working with,
Toby is well known to anyone who has seen shows produced by
78th Street Theatre Lab ( like Kenneth What is the Frequency or Man in the Flying Lawn Chair or Mamet's The Frog Prince) . The Lab is also a producer on this one. Don't miss this really amazing work if you can help it. Toby takes the acting moment many of us have experienced - if you've ever worked as an extra - and turns it into a fantastic journey of self-discovery. It's a great hour of theatre. Here's the info:

Question really. My wife was involved in the filming of Wally and The Chosen Few. She had a one word extra part, under the name of Makenzi Marciano. I would love to know where I could get a copy of this for her as a surprise. If you can direct me to someone who could help me with this I would be most appreciative. Thank you. You can contact me at
