Lemme tell ya what. We've got lots to be thankful for under the umbrella. In addition to the unparalleled generosity we experienced on Give to the Max Day, we SUers have got so many wonderful things in our lives.
I am thankful for...
1. Puppies. ALL the puppies. Everywhere.
2. Always, my supportive family that takes care of my friends, believes in my work, and still loves me when I'm a little (okay, a lot) crazy.
3. All the wonderful (and infinitely interesting) people creating (and seeing!) new work in the Twin Cities. What an awesome place to play
Tanner Curl, head writer on RAPTURE, reflects on Savage Umbrella's most recent project.
I remember the precise moment I first conceived of RAPTURE. It was around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 18, 2010. I was in my bed, my fiancee, Emily, snoozing beside me. As was typical of the time, I was in the midst of doubting myself and just what the hell I was doing--or namely, not doing--with my life. You see, Emily had just closed a run in Savage Umbrella’s THE AWAKENING. Neither of us had worked with the company before, and after going to the closing night party, I was really impressed by the quality of the work and the spirit among the ensemble. It was exactly the kind of thing I wanted to be making, but why, oh, why don’t I have cool friends and maybe I just need to stick my ass in a chair and write, but I always give up, and it’s scary and wahwahwah!!!
