A PHOTO

I bought this tonight. From HSN. I’m not British, and I don’t wear dresses (though I have a ton of them in my closet). 

And if that wasn’t enough, it’s from Kelly Osbourne’s first collection. At least she believes in fair fashion.

Now let’s see if I actually ever wear it…

Time to Start Again.

It’s time to blog again. And instead of doing it for my career, or say something about my theatre community… I’m making this about me this time.

I haven’t written anything in a really long time, other than PowerPoint decks, and I need to get back to my voice. It’s been a little lost.

I’ve been working my ass off, I had a kid, my world has flipped upside down so many times in the last few years that I need to find a way to get back to what I think and feel.

This blog is an attempt to do that. 

So what am I going to do this time around? I’m going to say fuck the rules, fuck the topic, it’ll just represent me. Maybe it won’t be interesting enough for anyone to read, but that’s okay. It’s for me this time.

I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!

B-More Dog is gathering photos of Maryland families with their “pit bull” dogs to show Maryland’s leaders that our dogs are cherished members of the family and shouldn’t be unfairly discriminated against. 

Please take a photo of you and your dog, holding a sign using one of the following messages:

1. Nobody in my family is “inherently dangerous”.
2. Please don’t force my landlord to discriminate.
3. Please save my family member from eviction.

Please post your photo here on B-More Dog’s Facebook group page [
https://www.facebook.com/groups/35638834718/] or email it to us at b_moredog@yahoo.com. By doing so you are giving us permission to use your photo in a heart-wrenching montage that will be presented to our Governor and State Legislators at the appropriate time. Please submit photos through Saturday, May 12th.

Get By With a Little Help From My Friends…

Hey Friends!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. In fact too long. But… so much has happened in my theatre life.

I’ve become a company member and then took over the Managing Director role at Glass Mind Theatre.

I’m also mid-run for a show I directed called And Underneath the Moon.

Okay - well that doesn’t seem like that much when I word it that way, but let’s say all the little things that cascade out of those two things are abundant.

Honestly though, I’ve been blessed to start working with an amazing group of people, not only the theatre company, but also my cast for Moon. Not only are the people I surround myself with colleagues, but they are also my Baltimore family. 

I love my day job. I’m good at it, it gives me purpose and it provides for the life that I have. My work in theatre feeds my artistic soul though, and keeps my head in the right place.

Well it’s the holiday times, and Glass Mind has taken on the ambitious goal of raising $5,000 before the end of the year. To do my part, I’m making it my personal goal to raise $600 in the next 3 weeks.

Here’s where my friends and family come in. I need your help.

At Glass Mind, we’re really committed to making theatre accessible - for us that manifests in many ways:

  1. Keeping ticket prices low. By far, this is one of our most important goals during our seasons. Most theatres in town charge around $15 for their discount tickets. GMT’s full price admissions is only $12. We want people from all walks of life to see the work that we do, so we are committed to keeping tickets prices as low as possible.

  2. Opportunities for new artists. We pride ourselves on working with a wide range of skilled artists and providing opportunities for them to experiment and play with their craft. Whether it’s a new playwright, a n00b actor or someone just looking to learn more about theatre, we provide opportunities for these individuals to have access to experienced artists. As a company we want to help our community grow and prosper while challenging ourselves to push our artistic limits.

  3. Exploring the theatrical experience in non-theatre events. Not everyone loves theatre, or at least they don’t think they do. That’s why through our auxiliary season and events we investigate what it means to have a theatrical experience in a traditionally non-theatre event. For example, our recent Open Mic night or our Drag Show over the summer. Theatre is everywhere, and we want to invite the community to explore what it means through various offerings.

So here is where you come in. I’m asking you to donate $10 to GMT before December 31st. If I can get 60 of my friends and family to donate $10 each, I’ll make my personal fundraising goal. 

I’m only asking for $10, but feel free to donate more if you can.

The incentive. If I hit my personal fundraising goal, I will send (or hand deliver depending on where you live) the top 5 donors, by amount, a dozen of my awesome Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies w/ White Chocolate Morsels or my Dark Chocolate Espresso Cookies - your choice - in an awesome holiday tin. And trust me, I’m an awesome baker.

To ensure that I can keep track of your donations (and see who gets the baked goodness), please email me at lmorton [at] glassmindtheatre [dot] com after submitting your donation.

Alright, so that’s enough from me. I hope that you don’t hate me for turning a blog post into an ask for donations. It’s just Glass Mind means a lot to me. I feel like I finally have an artistic home, a place to take risks and really explore the next phase of my life as an artist. I hope you’ll join in supporting this amazing group of people I have the pleasure of working with.
