We could not be more excited about ERNEST SHACKLETON LOVES ME. It began as a one-woman fever-dream musical/solo show for Val, co-commissioned by TheatreWorks of Silicon Valley and La Jolla Playhouse – and just recently, we have added an actor to make it a two-person show. (As Brendan put it, we’ve gone from Thespis to Aeschylus, and now we’ve got real drama…)
With bookwriter Joe DiPietro, director Lisa Peterson, and lead producer Matthew Kwatinetz, we did a workshop and presentation in NYC in February 2013, costarring Will Swenson. We are looking forward to bringing a full production of SHACKLETON to the stage sometime in the coming year.
