My Life on a Stage

Have you ever wondered who would play you if your life was portrayed in a movie?  I have.  Who would be a good me?  I mean, besides from Denzel Washington.  (Obviously he and I are a resounding match.)

What?  You don't see the resemblance?  It's because I'm not wearing a tie, isn't it?  Use your imagination, people.

Last night I saw a small glimpse of my life played out -- not on the screen, but on the stage -- when Cynthia Mazzant, a talented playwright and co-founder of Tempest Productions, drew from the works of several talented authors and poets and wove them into the dialogue and monologues in Sunshine, Lollipops & Rainbows, an interactive play set at a bridal shower.  I was honored -- and humbled -- to be featured among them.

I watched as the humorous, heartbreaking, and complex rituals of women were dramatized before me, and I listened as these words of mine were beautifully delivered.  Let me tell you, this was special.

My warm thanks goes out to Cynthia, Tempest Productions, and the actors for such a touching adaptation.

    I think it's the lack of mustache that's making it hard for me to see the comparison. Congratulations, Robin!

  2. I thought the piece about the The First Last was beautiful! Made me cry!

  3. Gosh, Cynthia and the daughter did such a great job with this part!  Made me tear up, too.

    I loved hearing Cullen's name embedded in the monologue from your piece!

  4. I totally overlooked the mustache.  Good point.

    ... and thanks, Christiane!
