Serendipity : the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for
Unfortunatly, when I say the word Serendipity, you may think of a very bad romantic comedy starring John Cusack. I know, because that is what I thought of any time I heard that word. No longer is that the case for me. Now when I think of that word, a person comes to mind by the name of Patrick Jordan. I met Patrick at a Deep Local party, and was introduced by our mutual friend Jeff Swenson. Little did we know our history at that time, but we do now! You just have to listen to the episode to hear it.
I will tell you that Patrick Jordan is the Artistic Director of his company Barebones Productions in Pittsburgh, PA. A local theater company that pushes the envelope, bringing plays to life that have an edge, or grit. I saw my first (but not last), Barebones production of The Elaborate Entrance Of Chad Diety at The Ace Hotel recently, and was blown away by the production. It was a sold out show, and I had such a blast during it. I couldn't wait to have Patrick on to grill him about the in's and out's of putting that show together. I mean, there was a real wrestling ring!
Little did I know, we were going to have an epic and hilarious chat. Topics discussed-
