You Never Forget Your First

My First Review - Lesbian School at Cornell

Ask any playwright about his/her five most memorable productions, and I'd be really surprised if his/her first produced play isn't one of them.  I found this review the other day (well, it's barely a review, but still, it counts) and it's for my first real play, "Lesbian School," which I directed at Cornell University during my sophomore year.  I could still be sore about the comment that some jokes hit and some jokes miss (I'd like to believe that all my jokes hit), but I prefer to just remember how excited I was to see something I've written taking life in front of me, and watching an audience respond to it.  It's not my favorite production ever, it's not even my favorite play, but memorable?  Oh, it makes the top 5 easily.
