Operas and One-Acts on the Horizon

Lots of projects in progress and a few openings imminent!

On the writing front, my seven-minute adaptation of Moby Dick, CALL ME…, is one of the pieces featured in 3V Theatre’s evening of staged readings, “Soaked.”  One night only: March 30th, 8pm, at TheaterLab.

Additionally, my play, FISH FOOD, opens April 9th as part of the WorkShop Theater Company’s main stage production of food-themed one-acts: A La Carte: A Feast of New Plays.  Details available at the link below:

(A rare experience having my face involved with publicity materials, but there I am looking contemplative on the right.)

I’m also the resident director for enCANTA Collective’s 2014-2015 season.  In December I had my maiden voyage in opera direction with enCANTA’s productions of GALLANTRY and THE CHRISTMAS ROSE.  Rehearsals are currently underway for “Fables and Fairy Tales: Puss in Boots,” an evening including Robert Schumann’s Three Romances for clarinet; scenes from Janacek’s THE CUNNING LITTLE VIXEN, Dvorak’s RUSALKA, and Rossini’s LA CENERENTOLA; and Xavier Montsalvatge’s PUSS IN BOOTS.  Come catch all the operatic action at All Saint’s Church on April 12th, 5pm.  Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com or at the door.

Heart of Oak–A great success and a rolicking good time

My play, Heart of Oak, had an excellent run at the 2015 Frigid Festival, thanks to the efforts of Everyday Inferno Theater Company and the stellar cast and crew.  Our run was so successful, we were extended for an additional performance.  And we got a handful of lovely mentions and reviews.  Links below:
