Journey through the Creation of Adapt! - Getting Naked

45 minutes into Adapt!, I make my entrance by getting rolled onstage in a bathtub. I take a bubble bath for a bit, then get out, dry myself off, get dressed. It’s the first time I’ve ever been naked onstage. But it’s not the moment in Adapt! when I feel the most exposed.

“At New Year 1972 … we’re driving through the night in this big, old car and listening to AM radio. I still remember the station call letters, WLW Cincinnati, WLS Chicago. That you could go for hundreds of miles traveling long, long straight roads, Interstate 70. I’d never seen a road that goes on for a thousand miles. And I’m thinking, “Oh boy, this is America” and it was all the little kid’s fantasies of the space and the distance.”
