It’s been a busy month with lots of theatre, and a little bit of travel too! Keep reading for some assorted updates on spring projects and adventures…
Quote of the Month
“Nothing ever seems impossible in spring, you know.”
- L.M. Montgomery
Art & Destinations I enjoyed this month:
Catching off-Broadway premieres of several new works including Suffs at the Public Theatre, Wish You Were Here at Playwrights Horizons, and Golden Shield at Manhattan Theatre Club
Celebrating the Bard’s birthday at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s annual gala
Visiting the Brooklyn Botanic Garden during cherry (and other) blossom season
Looking forward to season 2 of Hedgepig Ensemble Theatre’s This is a Classic: Expand the Canon podcast, highlighting classic works of female playwrights
A few April views!
Current & Upcoming at Roundabout
It’s a busy stretch at Roundabout, with three productions currently or soon-to-be running! The heartwarming new play Birthday Candles by Noah Haidle runs on Broadway through May 29, playwright Dave Harris’s humorous and suspenseful Exception to the Rule has just begun preview at our Underground black box space, and Mansa Ra’s fresh generational drama …what the end will be premieres at the Laura Pels Theatre in a few weeks.
My office is also in the midst of preparations for the annual Refocus Project, coming up in June and this year featuring readings of under-produced classic plays by Latinx playwrights. The project centers on producing a series of play readings, which will be available for free public streaming coming up this September.
This month’s train travel to see friends’ performances included a weekend visiting some favorite and newly discovered spots in Boston and Salem!

Spring Art Feature
Looking for a unique Mother’s Day or spring birthday gift? I’ve recently expanded my art offerings on Redbubble with a pair of seasonal designs, a floral detail and a nautical harbor scene (both inspired by my time on Cape Ann last summer). If you aren’t familiar, Redbubble supports independent artists by offering their designs on a wide variety of products including home accents, accessories, stationery and prints. If you find a piece of art you love, you’re sure to find a useful product you’ll enjoy!
