Happenings…

After closing American Son on Broadway, we packed everything up and took it to Brooklyn to shoot for Netflix.  Watching our show be tailored to fit a new medium was equally informative and fascinating.  I was chest deep in a robust pilot season at the time so it felt especially fortunate to be able to work with such an incredible team in the mornings and then go straight to read for the networks in the afternoons.

Also: Screening Alert! I’m one of the leads in a short titled Remedial Love that just made it into the Manhattan Film Festival!  It’s world premiere will be here in NYC at Cinema Village on Friday April 26th at 9pm.  Watch a clip here and get tickets here.

Summer Happenings…

2017_retouch_IMG_3212

I just reunited with Sibyl Kempson and Graham Reynolds to work on The Securely Conferred Vouchsafed Keepsakes of Maery S. at New Dramatists.  It’s a sort of kaleidoscopic meditation on Mary Shelley’s life, monsters and the outdoors.  We had a week to work primarily on music but we also managed to try out some new theatrical conceits that proved super fertile during our concert reading.  It was a treat to have so much time to work with artists I admire and adore.

I’m thrilled to begin work on another musical this week at Ars Nova.  Created by a wildly talented couple–The Bengsons–with additional lovely thoughtful work on the book by Sarah Gancher, it’s called The Lucky Ones and is being directed by Anne Kaufman.  I love working with Anne as much as I love watching her work.  So I’m very excited to be in this room and sing these songs and return to the freedom and delicious that is Ars Nova.  Last time I performed there it was in the original production of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 so partnering with them again feels like home.

I’m also doing a short film with my friend Shane Kearns.  He wrote the script, won a grant from BMCC and is hard at work to make his vision a reality.  It’s called Remedial Love and we’ll star in it together.  I’ll share our fruits as soon as I can.  Stay tuned cause I’ve got another play on the horizon…
