Welcome to Free News, our home for ideas, big and small; lofty and pedestrian. For frank talk of arts and creativity; the process that sustains our lives and crushes our will, often in neighboring instances. A home for the profound and the picayune. This is a place where we will, given sufficient time, eventually discuss many of life’s questions.
We’ll also talk about this venture Jen and I have started called Free Spirit Plays & Musicals. It is simultaneously a culmination and a new beginning. It’s an opportunity for the stories and songs we have created and loved, to exist outside the four walls of our home and theater. A chance to share our vision with other communities, and let those who share our joy for making music and theater adopt our bundles and enjoy them the way we have in our performances.
We will “plug” our shows, of course (though perhaps the phrase, “advocate for...” is a better description) because we love them and because we want this business to succeed so we can write more shows. But mostly we’ll talk about creativity, in all its forms. We’ll talk about the power of creativity, the highs and lows of the creative process, deadlines that motivate and compel, the excitement of creating a new show, etc.
