Hearty congratulations go out to Joel Jeske and Mark Lonergan on their Drama Desk nomination for their show CUT TO THE CHASE!

Howdy Everybody!

It is official. Mark Lonergan and I have received a Drama Desk Nomination 2008 for CUT TO THE CHASE.
Our group is "Most Unique Theatrical Production"
Mark was given a nomination for directing.
I was given a nomination for creating and writing the show.

The Awards Show is on Sunday May 18th, 2008.
I believe it is going to be broadcast locally.

Mark and I are both freaking out.
We have been nominated along side Broadway productions and Million dollar budgets.
Our show cost roughly $32.50.

We were told last night, while rubbing elbows with Linda Lavin and Harvey Fierstein, that what we did not have in budget we made up for in technique, craft, earnestness, and heart.

Heart? Joel Jeske is capable of heart?
Who Knew?

Thank you for letting me share this with you.

Joel Jeske
