Ready for a Day of Rehearsals!

Here is what I love about Nathan’s work…

Writing is something that is first spiritually designed, even in the perception and experience of the audience, before it is physically performed (or applied by the audience).

Writing requires a refining process, both internally and from external feedback. This necessitates not just humility, but a desire to improve. It is the way of progression.

Writing provides a venue for teamwork, each person in their very specific role. Not just actors, but the stage manager and dramaturg and the guy who brings in the box of the revisions Nathan and Scott have done overnight. Each person doing their role well, with professionalism and skill, is what makes the entire production a success. It’s only everyone working together that can bring the words to life.

And when words are brought to life, miracles happen, and life gives life to more life.

I am really, really excited for today!


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
