Staged Reading

I can't believe how lucky I am to work with such an amazing company on Las Pajaritas, a play that is very close to my heart.  We workshopped the play for a week, with days off in between for rewrites.  On Thursday, December 13th, there was an invited staged reading at The Drama League.  The cast consisted of the incredible Jacqui Guillén, Annie Henk, and Zuleyma Guevara.  I also felt incredibly lucky to have Rebecca Martinez direct and Alexis Williams in the room as dramaturg.

Table Reading

I was lucky enough to have a table read of Restore at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.  It's been a long time since I've looked at this play.  After a semester of grad school and with some smart notes from the actors, I have some new ideas for rewrites that I am excited to dive into.
