On Wednesday, I put together the first public showing of Packing and Cracking through The Drama League’s First Stage Residency, along with core collaborator Joseph Amodei and facilitators Kalyne Coleman, Roma Cutinho-Scarano, Ryan Dumas, Madison Fae, David Jackson, Rory Kulz, and Yaron Lotan. The showing was a huge success! Thank you to the very many of you who attended!

At the end of last month, I had the pleasure of directing a reading of Meghan Kennedy’s Buffalo Bill or How to be a Good Man at PlayPenn. I had a wonderful cast of Philly actors, including Campbell O’Hare, Scott Greer, Trevor William Faye, Nancy Boykin, Matteo Scammell, and Donovan Lockett, and exceptional leadership and support from Artistic Director Paul Meshejian and Associate Artistic Director Michele Volansky.

And now I dive in to continuing to develop It’s in the Bag with an eye to putting it up before the 2020 election! There will be a reading at Irondale August 22 at 8pm; use the Contact tab on this site to reserve a seat.
