Fall 2015

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be directing HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA for Atlantic Theater School and GOD OF VENGEANCE for New School, both here in NYC.

I’m also continuing development of new works with Dipika Guha (GAMAN) and Lauren Feldman (FILL OUR MOUTHS).

Fall 2014/Winter 2015

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!

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.
