In the Works
KICK OFF KARAOKE FOR ELIZABETH GILBERT’S UPCOMING NOVEL “CITY OF GIRLS”
Riverhead Publishing and Liz asked me to help introduce her latest book to a great crowd of media and influencers with a little theatrical flair. “City of Girls” is a wonderful story about a group of women in the theater world of 1940s New York City. We surprised Liz (and the guests) with a chanteuse and showgirls performing a 1940s version of “Girls Girls Girls” by Motley Crue, and then opened the stage for some live piano karaoke. “Book nerds let loose.”
UPDATE!! THE FALLEN SAINT // HOTBED MUSIC HALL
The Fallen Saint // Hotbed Music Hall, is a venture I've been happily working on with a group of talented colleagues/friends from Blue Man Group, Queen of the Night, STOMP! and beyond.
Hotbed Music Hall is a world-class entertainment venue and full service café/bar anchored by The Fallen Saint, a new live music/immersive theater concept inspired by the music and culture of New Orleans from turn-of-the-century through Prohibition.
We have found a home in New Orleans and are actively looking for real estate/venues in other markets across the country. Pushing the New Orleans opening back a bit—we are working on the long game!
“A GOOD EVENING WITH JOCKO”
I produced the first live recording of the extremely popular JOCKO PODCAST at Symphony Space in NYC. A sold-out crowd was inspired by the top-rated podcaster, best-selling author, and retired SEAL officer, Jocko Willink. Check out the episode of the podcast here. Working with Symphony Space was a great experience, and personally, it was awesome to see my brother do his thing. Two Willinks for the price of one.
I WROTE A BOOK! (AND A HALF)!
Inspired by all the most awesome 9 to 11 year-old girls we know, Alix Sloan and I are working on a series of middle grade novels, The Peony Chronicles. They address real topics (BFFs! Boys! Bras!) in a real way, with honesty, humor, and compelling, relatable stories. Bestsellers? A hit TV show? Hopefully… but at the very least, I get to “see” my LA-based friend, Alix, during our regular FaceTime meetings!
We have finished the first book and have just sent it out to a few agents & publishers—Send us good vibes! We couldn’t wait to get back into the world we’ve created while we sort out the business side of things, soooo we are about halfway through the second book in the series.
