A moment for some serious gratitude. Thank you to EVERYONE who attended “Neverwhere” at Sacred Fools. My friends, loved ones, acquaintances, and people I didn’t even know, who spent their time when they didn’t have it and/or the money when they didn’t have it; those who shared their hearts, those who showed up just at the mention of Neverwhere, those who had no idea what Neverwhere was, those who were skeptical about LA theatre and still showed up anyway, those who showed up when sick (or healthy , those who showed up once, those who showed up SIX times and more, those who shared links/emails, those who stayed after the show just to connect and talk with me, and those who just believe enough in good art to support me throughout this run, support this cast/crew, and mostly importantly support good art. This has been THE best production I’ve ever worked on. I’ve owned every bit of this and sharing this with you all has been heart-expandingly incredible. Here are just some of the faces I’ve managed to capture (with my staff Serpentine , and to those who I didn’t get, thank you still. My family and friends, thank you for your support, now and always, I love you. HUGE thank you to Alex Webster and @tyraie397 for coming all the way out to Los Angeles from Sarasota Florida to see me do my thang! And a very special thank you to some incredibly brave and bold artists @neilhimself @hugoschwyzer @5tilt and Keegan Michael Key. Thank you for your art and thank you for witnessing mine.

I’ve been given a gift. The life-changing gift of Hunter. To be able to step into the shoes of woman, to me, whose depth is so vast, beauty is so unimaginable, strength is undeniable, intelligence is so precise, and spirit is unforgettable. Thank you @neilhimself for creating room in this world for such a woman, such presence, and such a force. Thank you Scott Leggett for believing in me when I couldn’t and seeing Hunter in me from the beginning. Thank you to the freakin BRILLIANT cast and crew of “Neverwhere” at Sacred Fools, you teach me something everyday, thank you for sharing your heart with me for the last 4 months! For everyone who has experienced this beautiful journey with me, you know who you are, thank you. We close this show tonight. What an incredible and unexpected journey I’ve been on …and the best part…I get to do it ONE MORE TIME! #hunter #neverwhere #neverwherela #closingnight #gratitude (at Sacred Fools Theatre Company)

Hello there! What an awesome message to wake up to this morning! You both are the amazing ones! I want to thank you so much: first for attending and being such a great audience, second and most importantly writing to tell me! What an honor! I always consider myself lucky to have any feedback from people at all! So who are you both?! I so wish I could have met you guys last night, and give a great hug to thank you! :) I’m so thrilled that you loved the show and my work. I take it you both are Gaiman fans, so with Gaiman fans it always such a tremendous compliment to know I’m on the right track with Hunter! Thanks for sharing this experience with all of us and making this even better for me!!
