About

This is the audio file of what I'd like the story to sound like. While this is in the format of today's podcasts its really more so in the style of early radio drama!

A little about the main characters:

      Frankie has been living his life with the Sword of Damocles over his head. He was drafted in 1941 and spent four years learning the art of pretending you have no heart. The way he saw it, he never should have come back from the war, in truth there as a part of him that never did. He tends bar now, simple work in a pub where no one wants to talk with anyone else and that suits him just fine.

      From time to time he sees a young family walking in the park with their newborn. "Baby Boomers" he hears them being called. His heart tries to leap through his chest every time he sees this. He thinks for a moment how happy he might be if one day that young father was him. Then he remembers the one gal who tried to bring him that happiness, Roxie Sullivan. If only he hadn't broken her heart...

      Roxie was very much an independent woman for her day and age. Since she was a little girl she knew she didn't fit in with the casual crowds. She was raised mostly by her dad so it's safe to say she was very much a tomboy.The best lesson she ever learned from her dad was how to stand toe to toe with any man who tried to push her around. The were many a drunken fellow who woke up in the ER with a broken nose and missing a few teeth on account of sweet Roxie.

       Sadly Roxie's biggest mistake was falling in love with a broken man. She was a fighter but she found out the hard way that she couldn't fight another man's demons. Everyone has their Waterloo and Frankie was hers.

Risks and challenges

"The road towards any productions is paved with insurmountable obstacles leading to eminent disaster" Geoffry Rush in Shakespeare in Love,

I've been in a few productions to know better that this project will come off without a hitch. So how do I plan to be successful? Prior to being an artist I managed many restaurants and I know how to budget as well as know how to hire the right people.

There's an old food service slogan that goes by,"In order to win the away game you have to have the right people on the bus" The first step I will take once we fund is to hire talent that is professional as well as dependable. I already have a sound engineer with many years working tech for various productions. In short I won't be taking your money and throwing it away on the wrong kind of talent (there are many types of talents in this world).

When it comes to overcoming obstacles I feel that's where I shine the best. I was a bar manager at Phoenix Sky Harbor for years, my day started with obstacles from inventory issues to HR/staffing. I excelled at that job because I ran my units like I would a production. Meaning I took care of my people but the "show" always came first. Well now I don't have to pretend I have a production flipping burgers!
