Happy New Year, dear Friends!
I hope your 2020 is off to a glorious start. I rang in the year officiating the midnight nuptials of my buddy Michael and his love Mehgan (That’s right--you may now call me Reverend Rotimi and I've got the certificate to prove it!)
Self-proclaimed "theatre nerds", the bride and groom inspired a wedding ceremony that was so spectacularly them--complete with musical numbers, moments of meditation, and Steven Universe-themed affirmations of how our love for one another is the only way to make sense of our journey through this chaotic cosmos. I left determined to live more lovingly and artfully in 2020 and am excited to share some of the ways I'll be pursuing that resolution!

I'm having such a delicious time playing Pythio, the nonbinary oracle, in HEAD OVER HEELS, a modern fairytale set to the music of The Go-Go's, at New Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco.
Our sweet and zany show has been delighting audiences, including Jane Wiedlinof The Go-Go's who came to see us last night! Come dance to our beat before we close on Jan 12.
