My friend and colleague, Jean Marie Keevins, who is a puppet artist, milliner, and Associate Artistic director of the National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, recently interviewed me for her blog, Little Questions, Big Thoughts.
For throwback Thursday, my pal Jane Pickett from Nature Show dropped this outtake from an interview about some of the origins of “Object of Her Affection”.
Thanks to our backers (69 so far), Object of Her Affection has raised the minimum all-or-nothing amount needed for funding! The campaign is accepting donations through Friday, September 21 at 3:00PM PST. Any additional funds raised would increase production value and put Object of Her Affection on better footing for future runs.

In the run up to Object of Her Affection, I’m answering some frequently asked questions about the performance and subject matter.
In organizing the Kickstarter campaign for Object of Her Affection, I’ve been reflecting on the inspiration that led to the performance. I’ve been developing the ideas behind Object of Her Affection for a while: Back in 2010 – my wheels started spinning when I stumbled upon footage of a woman who wanted to marry an amusement park ride.
