I just spent a week at ASOLO REP, working on Goddess of Mercy with director Mark Rucker of San Francisco's ACT.  Many thanks to Jeremy Cohen for making the introduction to Asolo, and to Literary Manager Lauryn Sasso and the fine folks at Asolo for a week of great work!  I was happy to have a chance to see the opening of Amy Herzog's 4,000 Miles while I was there, and to catch one of the last few performances of Philadelphia Here I Come.  Asolo has to be one of the busiest regionals I've seen, with four or more shows (plus new works) happening simultaneously, several in rep!
