Back on Stage

On October 25, As Was Written returns to the historic Lyceum with a fresh lineup and the same creative spirit that has kept it going for five years. Tickets are on sale now.

We’ve hand-picked a lineup of diverse, skilled wordsmiths.

Actor and writer Greg Sestero, best known as co-star of the cult hit film The Room, is new to our stage. He’s the author of The Disaster Artist, a phenomenally funny book that’s currently being adapted into a feature film directed by James Franco.

We have Elizabeth Acevedo, a spoken word poet from the #1 ranked poetry team in the country.

Ryan Schutt is a talented stand up comedian that’ll bring the laughs.

Plus, As Was Written vets John-Mark Davidson (my fellow co-founder) and Stuart Smith will return to the stage.

More names to come shortly.

On a personal note, I’ve taken a break from writing short stories for now. Somewhere in between pushing what I do professionally, I haven’t given the appropriate amount of time to honing my stories like I used to. I’ve written, sure, and even had a piece cued up for our last show, but didn’t have enough confidence in it to put it in front of the crowd I have such a tremendous amount of respect for.

Sometimes these funks take time to work out. I’m on a streak of writing for all of three days in a row. That’s a start, right? But I’m confident I’ll be back at it next year. It’s too much fun to do, and I’ve been writing since I can remember and continue to love it dearly. I owe a few people a ridiculous story about being nice to strangers, as I promised I’d deliver not too long ago.

Anyway, I hope to see you at the show October 25. Doors at 8 p.m. Show starts promptly at 8:30 p.m.

It’ll be a grand ole time.
