Slow Server

I’m sorry for the slowness of several of my sites recently. It’s due to the server being busy because of so many busy sites. My host will be adding two new servers, and will move many sites from the current server to the new ones to ease server load. This should make all sites faster again. They’ll be working on this the next several days, including the weekend.

I don’t know yet whether my sites will be moved or not. I’ll let you know once I know. Some sites, such the Xena and The Vampire Diaries sites, the gallery is so slow when I try to add picsΒ  that it’s next to impossible to do it until it’s working better. So no updates at least on those particularly slow galleries until the server load eases.

Gallery Fixed!

I managed to fix the problem with the gallery myself πŸ˜€ I had to delete the subdomain from cPanel, then re-create it which reset the subdomain specs in the system to the correct ones, and then I also had re-issue the SSL certificate with AutoSSL to enable https again. But it’s fixed πŸ˜€

New Server

The site has been migrated to the new server (as I posted on Tumblr) and while the main site seem to be ok, somethings going on with the gallery – it’s coming up as an empty directory, although in cPanel and FTP the files are there. I think maybe it’s somehow still directing to the old server?

My host is still migrating other sites to the new server, but I’ll add this to a list of things to check and once they give the all clear and ask to report possible errors or missing updates, I’ll let them know.

BWW Interview: Renaissance Man James Morrison SPILLing on Choosing Roles That Feed His Soul

L.A. Theatre Works will be west coast premiering Leigh Fondakowski’s SPILL May 17 through May 20, 2018. We had the opportunity to chat with an L.A. Theatre Works’ frequent collaborator, actor James Morrison on his current and past involvement with L.A. Theatre Works.

Thank for agreeing to this interview, James!

Gil, you’re very welcome.

If I did my research correctly, SPILL will be your sixth radio theater production for L.A. Theatre Works after THE TUG OF WAR (2017), JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG (2015), IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT (2014), THE RAINMAKER (2001) and RUBY McCOLLUM (1997). How did you initially connect with L.A. Theatre Works?

Susan Loewenberg gave me my first job in L.A. In late 1982, when I first arrived in L.A. She hired me to understudy the lead role of Eddy in the L.A. Theatre Works production of GREEK, Steven Berkoff’s retelling of the Oedipus story, at the Matrix Theatre. Ten days later, I stepped into the role for a month. It was a massive part. I had to learn a Cockney accent and everyone else in the cast was British. No pressure, right? It was like learning a role the size of Hamlet in a foreign language. From that point on, whenever Susan needed someone to step in to cover for someone in one of her productions, she would call me. I was honored she felt she could count on me. And I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure RUBY McCOLLUM was the first time she offered me a role outright from the beginning of the production, which we recorded in the studio. THE RAINMAKER was the first live recording I did with her.

What characters do you play in SPILL? Can you give us a brief run-down on them?
