I had the privilege and joy of appearing in the concert version of COME FROM AWAY in front of the Lincoln Memorial on September 10. Here's a beautiful piece about it from the Washington Post.
And the North American tour officially relaunched on October 5 in Memphis! Complete schedule through Fall of 2022 and info on tickets are here.
I'm deeply honored to be serving as Treasurer of the Dramatists Guild, along with Amanda Green (our first female President), Branden Jacobs-Jenkins as VP and Kristoffer Diaz as Secretary. We each are breaking a barrier over at the Guild and I couldn't be prouder to serve alongside these brilliant writers and leaders! To read more, here's the press release.
Also, as Chair of the Dramatists Guild's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion committee, I've been working with our Business Affairs Staff, Council members, & committee to create the first Inclusion Rider of its kind, for writers to use while advocating for full inclusion in productions of our works. You can read more about it (as well as see the rider) here.
I've been doing tons of interviews, panels and discussions surrounding these tumultuous times and ongoing efforts to #StopAAPIHate. Here is one that I did alongside Leslie Ishii, with Gordon Cox for Variety
On a lighter note, it was a joy to join the effervescent Michael Kushner on his podcast Dear Multi-hyphenate, where we talked all thing multi-hyphenate! Keep an eye out for his upcoming book, in which I'm also featured.
Season 3 of TALKBACK, the podcast I host for the Dramatists Guild will be premiering on the Broadway Podcast Network and other listening platforms of your choice starting on October 18.
I'm also super proud to share this song that I wrote with Kim Sherman & Scott Killian last Fall in support of the Biden Harris campaign. Spoken word section is by Notorious Pink. Sung and played by members of the Broadway community.
Peace and Love to All.
