December is flying by and turning out to be a busy month (on top of the holidays)!
It’s with great excitement that The Video Games has been officially extended until August 2017. It’ll continue to perform at The Elektra Theatre every third Saturday each month. With each show being different every time, it’ll be nice to see scenes and monologues that we didn’t get to do during 2016!
Last Monday was the National Asian Artists Project‘s Discover New Musical performance. Four new musicals were presented and the audience was blown away by the variety of shows and performances. You Gave Me a Sheep by Emily Chui and Laruen Taslitz, gave a surprising twist to the fairy tale troupe of prince meets princess, get married, and “live happily ever after.” Examinations of long distance relationships and the realities of love resonated with the audience. It was a blast to stage manage and see it develop.
Currently, I’m in rehearsal for an independently produced new play, The Weekend Will End by Larry Phillips. It’ll be presented through the New York Theatre Festival’s Winterfest. Directed by Hondo Weiss-Richmond, the cast includes Tiffany May McRae, Larry Phillips, Meghan Miller, Derek Long, and Kevin Delano.
The play follows a brother and sister who haven’t spoken in nearly three years. So when Katie appears unannounced in Jake’s living room one Friday afternoon, he’s caught off guard. Their own insecurities, mistakes, and problems reveal themselves as their lives suddenly intersect.
Performances for The Weekend Will End are January 17 at 6:15pm, January 21 at 8:30pm, and January 22 at 1:00pm at the Hudson Guild Theatre. Tickets are available online.
Stand by for more.
