The ZACK ADAMS Project goes into “indefinite hibernation”

21 04 2014

Last night I performed the final night of of the “Zack Adams Trilogy” at Mainline and apparently everyone decided “Love Songs For Future Girl” was the show that they wanted to see, so last night was packed to the rafters (literally) in the Minimain at MainLine Theatre. A sincere thank you to all who came out, I have performed that show (at last count) around 150 times and last night was easily one of the funnest and most generous crowds I have ever had.

So after almost ten years, 6 live shows, two EPs and two live albums, countless stand-up shows and hundreds of performances at Festivals all around the world, Zack Adams” is now officially on “indefinite hibernation”. The Zack Adams Projects have been a huge part of my life and played a big role in getting my career to where it is now, but I feel like I’ve told all the stories I want to with Zack, for now at least, and I really want to focus on other projects that are still really exciting and challenging me, Trampoline, for example.

It was great to go out on a high last night, “Love Songs” is a show that has always meant a whole lot to me and I was glad so many people got joy and laughter out of it over the years.

Thanks Zack, I’ll be sure to “hit the cable with the hammer” at ever opportunity.

GAZETTE ARTICLE.

13 06 2013

I was recently interviewed by Pat Donnelly recent for the main Montreal Newspaper, The Gazette. We talked about my upcoming Fringe Show, my move to Montreal and why I’m so “Hyperactive”…

“This theatrically hyperactive native of Perth, Australia, has spent the last year in Montreal, becoming something of a fixture in the independent theatre scene as well as the local improv comedy circuit…”

It was a pretty cool article…read the full thing HERE.

WANT TO PERFORM “A COMPLETE HISTORY OF ZACK ADAMS”?

10 02 2013

This is kinda of cool. Through the awesome cats at Stages WA, (who helped dramaturge my show back in 2005) my first ever solo work A Complete History Of Zack Adams is now a published script that you can read and buy the rights to and perform!

It’s crazy and I’m super excited about it.

It would be super weird to see someone else perform a Zack show, but I would so stoked to see it happen. Zack has been a HUGE part of my life as an artist and this is a nice little thing that makes me feel, proud, I guess.

Check out my show’s page HERE at Australianplays.org.
