As July 28th comes closer we are on the 6th draft of the script! Andrea is putting together the dreamy actors who will be bringing the characters to life and the publicity machine is starting to crank up. We hope you'll be there!

Here's a shot from the period - that's Milt Gabler on the left - the man responsible for putting out The Dream World of Dion McGregor LP! A Trivia note - on the right, pulling out an album, is Billy Crystal's dad!

Well, folks, the 5th draft is complete and under Andrea's dramaturgical eye! Here's a photo (and on of the few that exist) of the actual star of Sleeptalker - the sleeptalker himself - Dion McGregor! In this photo he's probably the ago that he was when Mike Barr was recording all of the 500 dreams! Don't forget to save the date for the reading. It's creeping up on us!
