Kent-Meridian High School in Kent, WA (near Seattle) will be producing MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS three times during their annual Drama Fest of student directed and acted short plays. The dates are Wednesday, February 26th (2 shows) and Thursday, February 27th.
MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS is included in THE BEST 10-MINUTE PLAYS 2009 anthology, published by Smith & Kraus. (Another one of my plays, SUPER 8 VERSUS BACARA RESORT AND SPA, is also in the book.) Play books may be ordered through PayPal on the Store page.
Storyline: A single woman turning 40 can't wait any longer for a Tiffany diamond and visits Tiffany's Beverly Hills with her married friend, where they meet a handsome but nerdy salesman who encourages her to try on an $84,900 ring, which gets stuck; Romantic Comedy.
I adapted MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS into MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: The Musical, writing Book, Music & Lyrics. MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: The Musical ran for 10 performances in North Hollywood as part of the Secret Rose Theatre’s “Mini Musical Fest”. Please see the review by BroadwayWorld.com on the Reviews page.
MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: the Musical charted as Top Album on CD Baby's Show Tunes and its 3 songs charted #1, 2, 3 on Show Tunes, as well as #1, 2, 3 on Musicals/Broadway. All songs are available for purchase on CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon (see Store).
The album also attracted many international fans on Jango internet radio.

Thanks for your support!
The cover artwork for my two albums is so beautiful (thanks, Ewa) that I just can't keep it to myself (or if I did, it would be a crime, or at least a crying shame!) Hence, a new Zazzle store filled to the brim with gorgeous, cute, practical, pretty and witty items!
~Sip coffee from a colorful Western "Museum Tour" mug while listening to songs from MUSEUM TOUR: The Musical!
~Be the envy of all the gals when you retrieve your lipstick from the pink-rose-and-diamond-ring "More Precious Than Diamonds" cosmetic bag!
~And for those of you who MUST have the latest gadget the very day it comes out, rest assured that there are plenty of skins and covers for whatever item you stood in line for on Black Friday (ha!)
As for me, I'll be rockin' it old-school with tees & totes, as well as the afore-mentioned mug and cosmetic bag. But dang, these designs are so pretty that I might buy some electronic device just so I can put a cover on it. They are that good.
