Plays in Process

Scn Std: wk1

I just had my first rehearsal? meet and greet? chat? run-through? stumble upon? of a short piece I’ll be doing with Sara Katzoff and three undergrad actors/actresses. For the past semester and a half I’ve been working on my thesis play which is this dark tragedy. It’s been so long since I’ve started a new […]

The Room Where it Happens

(Not Hamilton. I wish, though.) Last night I went to the read through of Company One‘s production of Wig Out! by Tarell Alvin McCraney and I was so incredibly moved and inspired by the evening.

It’s Not About You

You know what makes me A N G R Y? That people don’t care about the rapidly vanishing bee population? Well yes, but that’s not what I’m going to talk about. What makes me grind my teeth and tense my jaw is when actors make the work about them. Over the past few semesters I’ve […]
