Oliver Trager scores gold at Planet Connections Festivity

And I quote:


I am so very proud to share with you the news that "Dig Infinity!" my play celebrating the art & legacy of the great Lord Buckley received three awards at last night's Planet Connections Festivity gala: Outstanding Adaptation/Revival, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Play with Music (me!), and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Play with Music (my co-star Russell Jordan!). I want to take this moment to ...thank all involved: Russell, David Lamberton (a major catalyst in propelling the work into a new realm), master musician John Kruth, demon drummer Boris Kinberg, and Lighting Designer Eric Feldman. My family -- my wife Elaine, son Cole, sister, bro and all the elders still stomping this sweet swinging' sphere -- deserve a special shout out for continuing to put up with me. And the entire Planet Connections Festivity community for giving me the space to blow my mind and, if you were in attendance, perhaps yours too. This great festival gives emerging works a place to breath and grow while raising awareness of a variety of very worthy social causes. Finally, a bow to Laurie Buckley and the Royal Family for keeping the coals a-glow. Don't know when or where we will hold this High Mass next but, be sure, the flow is a-go. Dig Infinity! and dig it deeply. Keep cool but care...
