SEATTLE DANCES | AN ODE TO FAMILY, MEMORY, AND CHEKHOV AT OTB Oct 13, 2014

The performance takes its name from the quirky filmed scene in which the cast is waiting on a train station in New York. Gregg loses his hat to the wind, and it is caught by a stranger (Dickinson) who displays a special talent to forget anything he is told.

The Man Who Can Forget Anything Oct 10, 2014

Preface
I do not trust my mind to remember anything. Thus I incessantly scribble ideas down on whatever I have on hand. A passport. A handbill. A ticket stub even.

Lofty beginnings
They took a very small boy and put him on top of a high high ladder in the old Eagles Auditorium. That was my son. And he sung a song from up there. It was a very long time ago so I can’t remember exactly what song it was, although it was a song from the musical Suessical.

At our demise, this will be yours. Oct 10, 2014

In the most poignant and hilarious scene of The Man who can Forget Anything Gregg Lachow and Megan Murphy show their 10th grade son all the film and video footage from their artistic career.  In this projected video, a bewildered Charile Lachow is led to the closet of their current New York apartment, where the films are stuffed.  His dad explains the method of showing film, and the regrets contained in the work.  Megan eases him into the video footage, stating that he should start with five hard drives on the desk, and that there are 41 more- vaguely gesturing behind her.
