What an eventful month! For the first time since the start of the pandemic I have been able to travel to see friend’s performances again, which has been a joy. And I am also thrilled to have begun a new job in artistic administration, my first one in New York!
Quote of the Month
“I think of playwriting more as a poker game than as a solitary act.”
- Paula Vogel
Art & Destinations I enjoyed this month:
Attending friends’ production of But Not Uncle Vanya in Philadelphia and reading of As I Was, Not As I Am at Queens Theatre
Hearing readings of the finalists for The Growing Stage’s annual New Play-Reading Festival
Experiencing the concept musical Glass Town, a rock requiem starring the Brontë siblings, at The Tank
Getting to the Lakeside rink at Prospect Park for outdoor ice skating before the end of the season!
A few March adventures!
Current & Upcoming
The Powers That Be, the suspenseful dystopian new play I’m directing this season for the Premiere the Play podcast, has now been fully recorded and will be finishing post-production over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for details on its release, coming this summer!
I have also been working on some dramaturgical research for another, literary-based, podcast project ー for which I hope to be able to share promotional info next month.
And last but not least, midway through this month I joined Roundabout Theatre Company’s full-time artistic/literary staff to serve as their Artistic Apprentice for the rest of the season. Absolutely thrilled and so grateful for the opportunity to support their artistic programming and new work development over the next few months!
24 Hours in Philadelphia
A quick weekend visit to catch my friends’ production left me just enough time for a whirlwind bit of sightseeing, including discovering a few new (to me) scenic spring views!
