Inspired all over again!

When I was in college, over 20 years ago, Curt Cloninger, pictured here with Patricia Mauceri and myself, performed his one-man plays God Views and Red Letter Edition in our chapel at what was then George Fox College (now University). It was the first time I'd ever seen a one-man play, and something inside of me leapt!  "I can do that!" I told myself, and here I am having made a career out of it since 1995.  

Seeing Curt perform Witnesses at the TAM Conservatory I was inspired all over again!  His commitment to the characters he portrays, and the fun he has with the audience and with the storytelling, the surprises he plants within the piece all pushed me to take my own work to yet another level.

It's also my prayer that Curt inspires some TAM students to take the plunge and enter into this incredibly challenging and profoundly rewarding work.
