Guest blogger Michael Kearns launched the first of his monthly blogs devoted to the year-long project of his researching and transforming himself physically and emotionally into Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, the protagonist of Doug Wright’s Pulitzer-winning play I Am My Own Wife, which we’ll be producing at Malibu Playhouse June-July 2014. Michael has written a number of books and memoirs about his working as a theater artist, and he plans to publish the complete Becoming Charlotte blog as a book. True to the intimate nature of Michael’s writings, he will also include personal and archival photographs. This is a thrilling project for Malibu Playhouse and anyone who loves theater. I hope you’ll read every one of Michael’s entertaining and illuminating blogs and learn what it takes to become Charlotte.
