This post wraps up my summer travels as well as my season at Roundabout Theatre Company, and I look forward to seeing what new projects the fall brings. There are a few I can already tell you about - read on to learn more!
Quote of the Month
“I dwell in possibility.”
- Emily Dickinson
Media & Events I enjoyed this month:
Finishing reading Siren Queen by Nghi Vo, and starting When Women Were Dragons by Kelly Barnhill
Regional performances of Grand Horizons at Gloucester Stage, and The Metromaniacs at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey
Visiting MoMA’s Matisse: The Red Studio exhibit and Chelsea’s Little Island
A few August adventures!
Thank You, Roundabout!
The end of August (and the end of Roundabout’s 2021-22 season) wraps up my time as Artistic Apprentice. I have loved getting to learn about developing and producing new work in New York from this administrative perspective, and now I very much look forward to having the availability to take on more freelance projects. I hope to have opportunities to collaborate with Roundabout in the future as a freelance artist, and I am excited to check out the upcoming fall season as an audience member. Their dynamic revival of 1776 starts previews on September 16, followed by the innovative new play You Will Get Sick beginning on October 14.
Travelogue: Cape Ann
Spent a wonderful weekend visiting the North Shore of Massachusetts (where I worked last summer) for sightseeing, seafood, and theatre!

Coming Now & Later
First up, a reminder that my podcast production of the suspenseful dystopian drama The Powers That Be was released this month, and is now available anytime wherever you get your podcasts! This was part of season 2 of the Premiere the Play podcast, and can be found alongside my season 1 play Zig-Zag, as well as bonus interviews with both playwrights.
And new to the “coming attractions” category I’m thrilled to report that Show Me Eternity, the beautiful new musical I choreographed and assistant directed last winter, will have a one-night concert performance in NYC at 54 Below this fall! Since it isn’t a staged production I likely won’t be working directly on the project this time around, but I can’t wait to go cheer them on and introduce the show to more people. The concert will be on November 9, and tickets are already available here.
