Hey there, hero!

We face daily challenges to the sense of order and control that we crave.

This goes for our work as performers, as well as social, political and emotional interactions. We're faced with things we don't understand, can't control and can't fix.

(Just google "anti-mask" and click on the video results.)

I have three tools I...

Hey there, hero!

The times we're living in are not ones we would have expected or predicted. And we can chalk that up to external developments that we neither asked for nor engaged in.

In 1984, I got ill, was hospitalized, spent time in the ICU and almost died.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
