So thankful to have been a part of the virtual production of Stephen Karam's The Humans at Olney Theatre Center, a recent New York Times Critics Pick:
I was fortunate enough to be on a panel of playwrights for Artists Envision The Future to talk about the future of theater after Covid. I spoke alongside Michael R Jackson, the recipient of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Lauren Gunderson, the most produced playwright in America for two years running, and Peter Marks, the chief critic at the Washington Post.
I'm an actress and playwright originally from Brooklyn, NY. I found my way to DC after graduating cum laude with a BFA in Acting from Ithaca College. When I'm not making art I run, Zen & Sugar where I work with women to help them heal disordered eating and body image using holistic modalities (and teach people to bake some pretty rad recipes)
Current and Upcoming Projects
So stoked that the play The Joy That Carries You, which I am writing alongside the incomparable, Awa Sal Secka, is having it's world premiere at the Olney Theatre Center this coming spring!
Awa performed the opening poem from our show on Seth Rudetsky's Stars in the House show on youtube. Check it out at the 1hr 35min mark.
My show Easy Women Smoking Loose Cigarettes was featured in the New York Times, as being a great source of entertainment during this time of social distancing. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/17/theater/theater-streaming.html
