Very excited to be joining fellow Here Lies Love'rs for a medley of Here Lies Love numbers at The Public Theater's annual gala at the Delacorte Theater this upcoming Monday! This year's gala, titled Hair to Hamilton, will celebrate 50 years of revolutionary musicals at The Public. Both honored and incredibly stoked to visit a favorite of mine on the Delacorte stage in Central Park!
It has been quite a busy spring season that I'm quite surprised to sit down and reflect on everything I've done in the last few months!
Throughout the fall and winter, I collaborated with two other actors from Scorched to write and produce our all women's cabaret, In The Boys' Club. We toured the San Francisco area for a week in late February to sold-out shows at Martunis and PianoFight! We also debuted the show in NYC on March 20 to a roaring house of laughter and tears at The Laurie Beechman Theatre. ITBC is currently making plans for future shows in NYC and the surrounding areas.
Shortly after, I started rehearsals for a new and modern adaptation of Lysistrata! Our wild and wacky, sometimes raunchy, but surely moving production ran from April 29 through May 7 at Bushwick's Temporary Storage gallery. Directed and adapted by Lily Riopelle with original songs by Cody Owen Stine, our fresh take on Lysistrata called on women AND men to take action in whatever way they can. We hope it spoke to the folks feeling helpless during this presidency.
NEXT UP: I'll be performing at Joe's Pub for a concert of music composed by Rebekah M. Allen on Monday, May 22 at 7pm. More information coming soon!
