The past six months of directing adventures have included:
– Tarell McCraney’s THE ANTONY & CLEOPATRA project for The McCarter Theater,
– working with the Public Theater/Oregon Shakespeare Festival on a co-produced workshop of Rhianna Yazzie’s historcialy-based drama about Pocahontas, MATACHANNA, at the Inge Center in Kansas,
– a staged reading of Sarah Burgess’ hysterically heart-breaking CAMDENSIDE with Stu42,
– a workshop of Dipika Guha’s lyric, epic and gorgeous GAMAN with Fault Line Theater
– presenting my adaptation of Wedekind’s LULU for both the Drama League and Dixon Place.
It’s been a completely rewarding and invigorating time.
I would like to say that I will post more often, but I don’t want to lie to you.
Thanks for keeping up with my work!
The World’s Fair Plays are a NYT Critics Pick this week!
Read the review here, and learn more about this “inventively staged” production.
We’re flying high at Dixon Place – this is truly a unique, death-defying, gorgeous 60 minutes of performance. Village Voice and NY Times recommended – don’t miss it!
That’s So NY stopped by an AOB tech rehearsal and I gave a short interview.
There’s some beautiful b-roll of Dipika Guha’s The Art of Gaman, and you can catch the feature on PBS throughout March – as well as right here any time you want.
I’m Producing Artistic Director of an engaging/engaged festival of new works – hope you can join us!
After a busy summer that included directing readings and workshops of HARMONIOUS PIMPS, HAMLET and FILL OUR MOUTHS in NYC and Deb Salem Smith‘s FAITHFUL CHEATERS for Trinity Rep in Providence, as well as devising a new work with McCarter Theatre‘s Conservatory in NJ, I’m looking towards next season.
It’s official, THE ARCHITECTURE OF BECOMING will premiere Off-Broadway at New York City Center, running Feb – March. More info here.
Very excited to be back in development with uber-talented playwright Lauren Feldman on her bilingual play FILL OUR MOUTHS. Below are some shoots from our first week working with an incredibly adventurous and inspiring company. We’ll all reconvene at the end of the month to continue working.
I’m elated to announce that I will be joining LAVA as their General Manager. LAVA is Brooklyn-based dance company that combines acrobatics and theater into their adventurous and often high-flying work. With fourteen years of rigorous artistic and organizational growth, international touring and critical success behind them, I’m thrilled to be taking LAVA to even new heights.
