New York, Buddy Holly, Phil Ochs, and Stampede Queens


Patience is a virtue.  And for that, fans, I thank you.  Procrastination is not, however, and I vow to increase the frequency of my posts.

That said, I will attempt to make an excuse as to why I haven’t posted in a while by elucidating recent events.

January-  It was the polar vortex.  I was in New York.  I turned 33 and my heart was warmed when I got a visit from the most attractive Elvis impersonator I have yet to encounter. We went to Times Square. Elvis in the Square I got a chance to take in Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen’s performance in “No Man’s Land”.  Took in a Ballet.  Saw the Beatles!  (1964, the Tribute) at Carnegie Hall.  And even put in a visit and an interview with the Sonny Ochs, sister of my hero, Phil. SonnyRadio February- I reprised two roles.  I took Mark Leiren-Young‘s “Never Shoot a Stampede Queen” to one of my favourite places in the world, Haida Gwaii.  And I completed my 10th production playing Buddy Holly in the back-by-popular-demand run in Chemainus. Zachary Stevenson Never Shoot a Stampede Queen March- I played a couple of fundraisers with my band, the Smashed Hits, in New Westminster and in my boyhood town of Qualicum Beach.  I had a ball playing to old friends, neighbours, and family.  Thanks Sherri! QB-Dance-WideApril – Molly and I packed up the car and made the big drive back to Kansas City where I’m spending time working on a new play.  Before we left, I even managed to shoot a segment for the super-fun, Pancake Manor children’s webseries! PancakeBuddy So, I guess I haven’t been spending all my time playing online chess.  But I do intend to keep you updated a little more often. Till then, Rave On! Z
