I took a break and hopped on over to tech at the Lyceum Theatre to hang out w my buddies Alex and Stephen for Be More Chill on Broadway. Projection designer Alex Koch and director Stephen Brackett met working on Woodshed's The Tenant. Alex is also my producing partner for Staging Film. Make sure to get your tix to this cult hit! I am so excited for them. Congrats to the whole team. 🎉
My dear friend Landen Jones died suddenly, unexpectedly, in a terrible accident on Saturday, January 26th, 2019. Landen was a fitness trainer and a performer. He loved the arts, particularly musical theater. And he was beloved by many. Hard to comprehend his death and hard to know what to say. He was truly an angel man; a beam of magic light. He will be deeply, profoundly missed. You can learn more about Landen here.
Here is a link to the GoFundMe page created in Landen's honor. And here is a link to the GoFundMe page created for Jason Jackson (the man Landen died trying to help), who is survived by his mother and 4 young children.
