I kicked off the summer by reuniting with YJLTC at the LIFT Festival in London. There were performances happening all over the city, but we were fortunate enough to perform at the Barbican. It’s been two years since we’ve done the show and seven since we made it. It was gratifying and illuminating to return to the material as older different (and hopefully) better actors. After my jet lag subsided I took off for the Summer Workshop at The Huntington Theater in Boston. I was cast in two new plays: Murmur Rock by MJ Kaufman directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh and The Bluebeard Project cowritten by Masha Obolensky and Melia Bensussen and directed by Melia Bensussen. We had two weeks to really pull the material apart so by the time we had our final public showings there were several impressive discernible changes. It takes a village to raise a play! And I’m very proud to say I was a small part of bringing these two into being.
Summer in the Theater!
