Hope you are staying well and happy! I'm hopeful that things are turning around!
I've had a few amazing opportunities to go back to work: recording the musical HALF THE SKY by Tidtaya Sinutoke and Isabella Dawes for Fifth Avenue Theatre's "Essential 5th Digital Series" which premiered in January, guest starring on an episode of NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (which will air on Sunday, February 28 at 10 pm EST on CBS) and returning to BULL as "Judge Conway" (airdate in March, also on CBS). All 3 projects used extremely rigorous safety protocols and we managed to both stay safe and create some fantastic content. Kudos to our producers and unions for making this possible! Also, from my home studio, I hosted a series of interviews for educational outlets on Inclusivity and Representation in the Musical Theatre for Digital Theatre +, and got to speak with David Henry Hwang, Jose Llana, Lisa Kron, Aneesh Sheth, George C. Wolfe, Nikki Renee Daniels, Ali Stroker, Alexandria Wailes, Andrea Burns and Chita Rivera! Educators, check out how to subscribe here.
Season 2 of TALKBACK, the podcast I host for the Dramatists Guild is available on the Broadway Podcast Network and other listening platforms of your choice! This season we talk about access, from many different points of view. I hope you enjoy!
New York Theatre Barn recently hosted my collaborator Jason Ma & I in their New Works Series to talk about our new musical BROKEN GROUND, commissioned by Village Theatre. You can watch the episode here. I'll be hosting a round table for them on March 24 about Women in the Theatre. Stay tuned for more details on how to tune in!
My play EMPRESS MEI LI LOTUS BLOSSOM recently won Abingdon Theatre Company's Short Play Festival award! I'm so honored and thrilled to join them as an Artist-in-Residence this year.
I'm also super proud to share this song that I wrote with Kim Sherman & Scott Killian. Spoken word section is by Notorious Pink. Sung and played by members of the Broadway community.
Peace and Love to All.
