I figured it was time to change the tone around here. Thankfully, my niece is doing much better and responding very well to treatment, so how's about we pick it up a notch around here, huh?

Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, I announce my upcoming Paris stage début!!

On Monday June 14th and Tuesday June 15th, I will be in my acting school's end of year production, called "Algérie en Eclats". It takes place in Algeria in the 1990's in the middle of the civil war, when thousands of innocent citizens, and most especially intellectuals, artists and journalists, were massacred by fundamentalists. Sounds like a blast, no? Seriously, though, the stage direction is pretty interesting, and it's not nearly as depressing at it sounds. In fact, the overall message is pretty much that artistic expression is a fundamental human need, and some people are willing to risk their lives for it.

The theatre where we are playing is pretty small, so if you want to come, you have to reserve your spot!

And I leave you with a French lesson of the day.

Instead of "Break a leg!", in France they say, "Merde!"

Isn't that perfect?
