OnNovember 28, 2017, at TIOT he is going to premier the work-in-progress for his fourth show. And, with the production help of Rebecca and Bridget, and the assistance of the other performers, work hard to make this a night you won’t forget…until tomorrow.

Louis Sanifu Kiney. Life is its own story. Stagebridge gives me opportunity to practice in the “telling” and I am blessed to be part of its “telling.”

Laura’s articles on the arts have been published in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Philadelphia Inquirer, and American Theater, and online at stages.tdf.org, playbill.com, and solosundays.com/4for/.
