Fly-By-Night was such a treat to work on. Beautiful people making heartfelt, funny theatre that they care about – what more could you want in collaborators? I’m only sad it was over so quickly. Wonderful job everyone, and thanks to all who came out to support us!
Rehearsal photos from COMEDIE OF ERRORS coming next week.
Come check out Fly-By-Night at Ars Nova at 8pm tonight! It’s going to be simply fantastic! Below are some photos from last night’s amazingly fun and beautifully played music rehearsal.
I just completed Teacher Training for the Public Theatre’s Summer Shakespeare Initiative. I’m going to be teaching daily classes to high school and middle school students at the Public, as well as doing one day workshops at the Delacorte and community out reach trips to shelters, prisons and community centers. This promises to be an exciting, educational and rewarding experience!
And, I just started rehearsals last week for Shakespeare’s COMEDIE OF ERRORS, running July 30 – Aug 8 in Riverside, Central and McCarren Parks. The cast in incredible, the production team is excited and inspired, the musician is tuning her fiddle and our featured pup, a teacup Yorkie named Lemon, has already learned all her lines! More details to come. Below is a picture of our Central Park location, the lawn at The Pool.
Come check out this new musical by three recent Yale grads and directed by yours truly, part of Ars Nova’s Uncharted Series.

The theatre is small, so reserving ahead of time is a good idea. And, there’s a bar in the theatre! What more could you want?
A few weeks ago members of the US and UK contingencies of the Old Vic’s New Voices program met, via a high resolution version of Skype. The purpose of the meeting was discuss the New Voices Project that will be presented in conjunction with the London run of the Bridge Project this summer. The project is meant to highlight the connection between the American and UK branches of New Voices, as well as spotlight the Bridge project itself and the talent of the New Voices members. Ideas were discussed for an updated TEMPEST, a scavenger hunt/interactive performance and performing on actual bridges. All of these ideas involve technology – actors in the same play on different continents, directors rehearsing actors via skype, and much more. Look out for a very exciting, cross-continental production coming in July!
