Gary Powell’s First One-man Show
“Maybe I’m It, Maybe I’m Not”
by Gary Powell
This was my first one-man show titled after my book by the same name. The book was written in the early 1980’s as the musings of a young man struggling with learning how to manage a young career burdened with heavy expectations, talent and self-doubt. No doubt this work would have been a blog had they existed in 1982. I never liked having to run the gauntlet of record companies, so I was determined to write a book and publish it without asking any authorities’ permission. “Maybe I’m It, Maybe I’m Not” is that effort. Fifteen years later, I adapted the work into a solo musical performance at Zachary Scott Theatre Center in Austin, Texas and performed it in the Spring of 1997.
