Just back from my trip to New York City. I had an amazing time.
I went there for the APAP (Association of Performing Art Professionals) conference. Very informative. I had the great pleasure of having meetings with: Ciara Murphy, strategist at The Public theater and Omar Sangare, Artistic Director of United Solo Festival. I met up with NYC transplant performers: Kate Robards, Adam Strauss, and Ismail Azeem. I had an incredible interview with Yehuda Hyman about the 20 year history of his performance THE MAD DANCERS that had its inception at The Marsh. Post Marsh, it was performed at Mark Taper Forum, the McCarter theatre (Princeton), Highways, the San Diego Rep and more. AND it was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays award.
It was such an inspiring trip and I feel excited and inspired to be back home at The Marsh.
This week, so happy to be at the opening of Jill Vice’s A FATAL STEP. A female hero takes on noir. It’s opening tonight. Joins us for the post-performance soiree with cake. It’s nearly sold out but we’re still giving out pairs of comps.
Thrilled too, to see Diane Barnes extension of MY STROKE OF LUCK is excelling, who as it happens won United Solo’s best script for 2017. Thank you Omar! Congratulations Diane! She shared the award with David Ford.
And don’t miss Don Reed’s final performance of THE KIPLING HOTEL this Saturday! If you haven’t seen it, don’t miss it. If you have seen it, see it again. I am. It’s totally seeable and seeable.
