Almost all the pictures I’ve ever taken have been done on my phone. My electronic gadget goes everywhere I do and carries my grocery list, a library of books, all of my CDs and photo albums, my work files, as well as calls, texts, and reads me my daily horoscope. The convenience is numbing. Why would we ever return to the days when a book was a book and not also a flashlight?

Last weekend was the closing of my one woman show BABA, a project I wrote, performed and had been in development for over three years. It’s been a powerful experience both as a playwright and performer, and it’s informed me in just about every facet of my life. As I approach the last three performances of the run, I thought now would be the perfect time to reflect on the core lessons I’ve learned from the world of solo performance.
