An Elf To Live For is OUT!!! YAY!!! I did it!
No someone buy it.
I wrote the synopsis BUT I think I left out that the book is also really funny. I think some of it could be a monologue play!!! Ha no I’m kidding. (Sort of) It was so fun to shoot the trailer for it and now I just hope to sell a few copies. We shall see???
SO I had to to apply for a grant for No Room for Shakespeare (yes rewrite is done and very good, and cleaner, I think) because I can’t afford to loose a few grand this year!!! Fringe Festivals are not cheap. At all. So I applied. We shall see BUT here’s the funny thing they asked for “what you’ve done artistically for the last 2 years! OMG I am a freak!Once listed out I was like damn I do a lot. No wonder i’m tired :)!!!! Keep in mind this doe snot include the freaking BOOK I WROTE, NOR No Room for Shakespeare, NOR any of the open-mics or little storytelling things, NOR al the shit I wrote and either didn’t like or just outlined! I put this here as a reminder next time I think I’m not working hard enough (No, I actually say this to myself, isn’t that horrible???)
The Sex Life of Achilles won First Place at the Maui Fringe Festival in 2018. Penned by and starring David, the play was previously nominated for Best in Fringe and Best World Premier at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
The Complete History of Drag in a Few Mo-mo, a solo play written and starring David, played at the Hollywood Fringe Festival with the support of the City of West Hollywood as part of One City One Pride in 2017. It won the Encore Award for Artistic Excellence. APT 3F then brought the play to Orlando Fringe in 2019 where critics called it “fabulously fierce” -Orlando Weekly and “incredibly engaging” -Orlando Sentinel. The show will go to New York in late 2020.
Also in 2019, David twice performed and produced a musical review Creation-ing, with his band Half Tongue Tribe, which examined creation myths and made them queer. They also played at Pagan Pride.
2018 marked the 4th show David produced with Queerwise, a group of LGBT seniors who write and then perform those works in a theatrical experience.
David has helped many unrecognized and unheard voices find the stage. In 2017 and 2018 he was a mentor at Hollywood Fringe where he helped and nurtured artists in their first festival. First with trans-artist Yozmit and then with Carrie Mikul as she explored women in Hip-Hop.
You have probably seen David in the tech booth every month at Planet Queer, an experimental performance art event, continuing his dedication to bring queer theatre to everyone everywhere.
