Can a musical be made in one night? Find out at tonight’s Sucker Punch Ball, where my attempt will be staged….
Tea Parties. Oil Spills. Brett Favre. Justin Beiber. Bed Bugs. Trapped Miners. The Lost Finale. Sarah Palin. Bristol Palin. Old Spice. Four Loko. Twitter Wars.
2010 may have gotten the best of you, but now it’s time to fight back.
Mix it up, mash it up, send it up, eff it up…
Have your way with 2010.
WHAT IS THE SUCKER-PUNCH BALL?
This unique end-of-the-year bash will feature a night of short plays written, directed by, and starring members of NYTE’s extended community — and it will all happen over the span of just one weekend! This is one event where ANYTHING GOES – the wilder, more outrageous, shocking, and hilarious, the better! The event will culminate in a public presentation of the produced plays, followed by a blowout holiday celebration!
SUNDAY DECEMBER 19th
Performance at 7pm
Playwrights will receive their instructions on Thursday Dec. 16th. They will then have until noon on Saturday Dec. 18th to write their 10-minute play. NYTE will then select a number of the plays for production. Registered actors and directors will arrive at noon on Sunday Dec. 19th and with lightning speed, they will be assigned to a play. They will then go directly into rehearsal, and at 7pm, come together with our audience for the final presentation of all the pieces!
244 W 54th St.
(between 8th & 9th Aves)

I read about an Eskimo hunter who asked the local missionary priest, ‘If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?’ ‘No,’ said the priest, ‘not if you did not know.’ ‘Then why,’ asked the Eskimo earnestly, ‘did you tell me?’

Up all-night to finish my 1st ever musical (a genre I’m not fond of) for Sucker Punch Ball. Play written with a yorkie asleep in my arms.
Working on a 48hr play for Sucker Punch Ball. So far I have 2010 and 2011 meeting each other at an award ceremony….a musical!
I don’t need an app to tell me how sexy my name is. I’m named after a deli sandwich.
Not a Sondheim fan, but what a great quote: “A lyricist is a poet who can earn a living.” Might say the same for playwrights & screenwriters.
