I'm Co-choreographing this glittery, fabulous, over-the-top new musical with Director/Choreographer Paul Stancato. With a book by Roger O. Hirson (of "Pippin" fame) and Music and Lyrics by Barbara Carole Sickmen, we can't wait to show NYMF that "Too Much is Never Enough"!
Off to the races! Baring again for Fire Island. Assisting the brilliant Michael Lee Scott and helping out with this summer fun-filled show on a magical island. This year's theme..."Playlist." The music you listen to while you're having sex. Naughty fun ahead...
Another season collecting with the Bucket Brigade comes to a close. The 160 member Brigade comprised of volunteers and BCEFA staff together managed 3443 slots and 954 appeals to raise a record breaking total of $6,379,572 for this worthy cause. Happy to pitch in a hand and donate my time to this phenomenal organization.
I directed some monologues for Caps Lock Theater's Pussyfest, a three night festival of monologues about the body custom-written for NY's finest working actresses, at The Access Theater. I worked with Satomi Blair, Starr Kirkland, Sarah Matteucci, and Samantha Sembler on interpreting the brilliant words of Naveen Bahar Choudhury, Nandita Shenoy, Christina Quintana, and Mara Nelson-Greenberg respectively. When an actress came down with a case of Strep at the 11th hour, Lynette Freeman stepped in to save the day. A brilliant evening of inspiring women throwing down massive talent!
As part of the Musical Theater Factory Director-Choreographer Coalition, I helped organize this networking event that brought 30 artists in the room to exchange information and build new collaborative relationships. A pleasure to organize and an honor to participate. A good time was had by all!
I was granted a 1 week Choreography Lab with the musical theater dancers of the Institute for Advanced Musical Theater. For 20 hours of rehearsal, I explored two pieces that have been developing in my choreographic brain. I first experimented with spoken word and movement for "Grammar Fetish" and then dove into a full-fledged production number to Joe Jung's "Tripping Round The Town." Such a joy to work with these students and get some new vocabulary onto bodies.
