Monologues That Go Bump in the Night!

Back in the early nineties when I was a young man out of college with a fancy directing degree I took a directing observership at the Cleveland Playhouse. It was there that Roger Danforth gave me a piece of advice that I have always remembered. “Go where you are invited. You are a young director and you need all the experience you can get.” Now because of an eight year detour into the world of theatrical agencies, I am a director who still has no experience. To that end when Mike Bloom at Coffee Black Productions asked me if I wanted to direct some of the monologues for their …. I said yes.

Coffee Black only came into being six months ago and in that time they have presented a number of readings of new plays. In addition they have been scheduling regular evenings of monologues.

Their most recent monologue night, Monologues that Go Bump in the Night, was originally scheduled for February 15 at The Tea Lounge. When the Tea Lounge decided to book another act for the same evening, they neglected to let anyone at Coffee Black know. So not only was the evening of fear rescheduled, it changed venue too!
