Fat Tummy, Massoud and CD

Wow! So much time has passed since the last blog entry. My bad...sorry gang. I've been so busy with all this incredible stuff that I'm really trying to figure out ahow to make time. Like literally create time so that there is more of it in the day.

Last week I was standing in my kitchen with my amazing wife and incredible daughter and my incredible daughter looked at me lovingly and said "Daddy, your tummys getting bigger!" from the mouths of babes!

I'm actually trying to lose weight for my next role (quite a departure from what I'm used to doing) and after a momentary pause it made me more determined than ever to stay away from those Starbucks Chais.

We also realized that she has been tummy focused since mommy has a new baby in her belly. She's going to be an incredible big sister!

All I have to say is when people heard what ole I'm doing next there was a pause...then a "I am DEFINITELY coming to see THAT!"  And then a giggle.  Trust me...this IS going to be a departure.

Now on to the immediate creative stuff. I've been working on this incredible play about Ahmad Shah Massoud who was the head of the Northern Allience and is credited by the Wall Street Journal with pushing back to Soviet invasion of Afghanastan.

He was called the Lion of the Panjshir. Pretty incredible man, a poet with a keen interest in architecture. He fought for human rights, equal rights for women in Afghanastan and was fighting against terrorism. Like all freedom fights he became a target and was assassinated on September 9th 2011.

The play is being workshopped at Centre Theatre Group in Los Angeles and the cast is pretty stellar.  We do our first presentation tomorrow and then the final one on Saturday.  Vey hard working group of people taking on a huge project.  Very proud to have been a part of this one.

And finally!  The CD is in PRODUCTION.  The title of the CD is BRING ME GIANTS.  It's also the name of the title track on the album.  I hope you guys like it.  We worked very hard on it.  There will be some new songs you've never heard and some wonderful tunes that you have.

Here's a sneak peek at the cover:

Bring Me Giants? Really?? You're doing a song from Frank's Cyrano? AWESOME. I can't tell you how very excited I am for this cd, especially when I heard Music of the Night, my all time favorite song, will be on it. The first time I heard you on Jane Eyre, waaaaay back in 2001, I said after listening to your voice "on the moors": "This man needs to sing MOTN. He would knock it out of the park." I can't wait to hear you prove me right.

Also, I do have Dracula, and it's by far one of my favorites of yours. And congratulations on little kiddo #2 :)

~Angel (yes, the Angel you held a "HI" sign up for at Christmas last year. My favorite present ever).
Best of wishes for the new baby to come and I cannot wait for that CD!
