What a wonderful time for Marsh on Tour 2020 performers at APAP: Lorri Holt, Irma Herrera, Candace Y. Johnson and me; all doing 15-minute excerpts from our shows. Lots of laughter, clapping and congratulations. Presenters wowed by our quartet of performers. Looking forward to next steps to tour our shows. In fact, if you know of theaters that might be interested in Marsh shows, please email me.

I hear it was fun, fun, fun last Saturday at Kate Robard’s opening of PolySHAMory . SF Chronicle called it “funny” and says it‘s “ one more way for us to be and to (try to) find love.” We are offering a pair of comps to the first 5 who use the passcode Ethical
