I’m so excited to announce the world premiere How To Live On Earth, a play I’ve been a part of developing over the last year.  It’s loosely based on the Mars One project and explores what the emotional/interpersonal effects of such a project might be.  It’s been super fun and rewarding to experiment with this incredible group to build a play from the ground up.  It’s very rare to not only have a play be produced only year after it’s first rumblings, but also to be able to work with a writer and director to shape the form and course your character ultimately takes. I can also honestly say that I’ve never been given the opportunity to develop a character quite like this or nerded out so much on outer/aerospace stuff, so I’m pleased to share this other side of myself.  We run from September 13th to October 3rd at HERE Arts Center.  The New York Times listed us first in the fall theater preview this week so tickets are selling fast.  Trailer’s here tickets are here and details are here.  Hope to see you at the theater!

Summer in the Theater!

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.
