4-Star Review of “Phoenix” in Remote Goat

Posted on: February 23, 2015

London’s Remote Goat just gave us a glowing 4-Star review.logo-remotegoat

“Quite Gripping.”

“The real strength of the play is the way in which it balances the horror of the supernatural elements, and Alan’s descent into madness, with comedy. At the same time it makes some wider points about how suicide affects those left behind, without getting too preachy.”

“It is a strong play that raises a few hairs on the back of one’s head, no mean feat given the non-traditional nature of the performance space.”

In other exciting news, the songwriters, Aurah, told me Friday night that they’ve licensed the song “Cracking Bones” from the play for use by the German feature film Ostwind 2. The original Ostwind was one of the most successful German films of 2013.

I own a portion of the publishing rights to the Phoenix songs, so I’ll be getting royalty checks. Is this an amazing business, or what?
