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.
