Assistant Director: Atomic City by Anson Mount

On January 11 The Flea hosted a reading of Atomic City by Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) directed by Leon Ingulsrud (SITI Company) and featuring the BATS. It’s a twisted take on Our Town with a really great creative team behind it and I was honored to assist one of my former teachers of Suzuki/Viewpoints and, well, one of my favorite actors.

Director: The Cutthroat Series at The Flea

The Flea is producing a series of Grand Guignol plays in the fall and I will direct Tics, or Doing the Deed by René Berton, a grotesque and sexy farce that stages marital revenge: "an eye for an eye, a hump for a hump." The show, which will include two other short pieces in the same genre, will run from September 23 to October 5. Auditions are next week and I look forward to announcing the full cast by the end of July!

Director/Dramatist Exchange

I was recently invited to participate in a Director/Dramatist Exchange organized by the Dramatists Guild. 15 writers are invited to meet 15 directors. They say that "over the years these Exchanges have resulted in countless lasting professional relationships crucial to a successful career in the theatre." Looking forward to exactly that!
