Zack Calhoon Gives Props to the Blood Brothers

Actor, playwright, and fellow blogger Zack Calhoon surprised the hell out of me this morning (in the good way, of course) with his newest post about his Top Theatrical Experiences of 2007: right there, alongside a bunch of Broadway shows, was a show I was in – The Blood Brothers Present: Pulp! You can read his entire list here.

This is very exciting to me. Now, granted, I didn’t produce the show nor did I play a lead role in it or anything, but it’s still very gratifying to have been part of a show that someone – especially as discriminating and savvy a theatergoer as Zack – thinks so highly of that they rank it right up there with a Tony-nominated Best Play, an acknowledged classic of world drama, and a play that’s probably going to win the Pulitzer Prize in April. Wow.

The producers of The Blood Brothers, Nosedive Productions – and two of their members, in particular, co-artistic director Pete Boisvert and artistic associate Patrick Shearer – worked their asses off on this show, and it showed in the finished product. The whole show was a labor of love for all of us, but especially for Pete and Patrick (they both produced, directed, and acted in the show). My thanks to Zack for showing us all some love like this at the end of the year. A great way to bring 2007 to a close. (I remember the night he came to the show: he and his fiancee, Susan, sat in the front row and got splattered with blood. Later that night, they emailed everyone in the cast and crew and told us how much they loved getting blood on them. That’s the spirit, people!)
