Sharon's Play: A PlayZoomers Production

My first experience with Zoom rehearsals! Very excited to play the title role in Sharon's Play by Harry Michael Bagdasian, directed by Ilise George. This touching short play is about Sharon and Jerry Michaelson, a young couple in the aftermath of a miscarriage. This has been a challenge to work on, but I am so happy to be learning all the ways theatre can persist during the pandemic. Contact me privately for the streaming link, or click the image to see two monologues!

Streaming: October 2nd, 2020, 7:30 PM Eastern

Burrowing Artists: Pilgrimage

My Pandemic actor activity included being a part of Burrowing Artists Vol. 2 (@burrowingartists). Burrowing Artists is a project started by NYC based playwright Taylor Steele which connects playwrights and actors. Each playwright and actor collaborate on making a monologue that inspires each of them. I was lucky enough to be paired with the extremely talented Molly Rose Heller. I immediately felt a connection with her, as we were both Californian, Jewish, Theatre Makers. 

For this project, I wanted to explore queerness and judaism. I have never been able to represent my queerness in a theatrical context before. This piece is very close to home, and I feel it is a very good representation of who I am as an artist in this moment. Go to the "Acting" tab of my videos to view!

(Also, surprise, I have pink hair now)

Sawyer Thompson at In the Works

So thrilled to be lending my voice to another musical production involving Justin Gates (see below with The Place Between)! This time, we'll be presenting a few songs from another one of his thesis productions Sawyer Thompson at The Duplex. < Facebook event found here. Originally inspired by The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the show has come to follow one summer in the lives of a few 20-something friends in a small town at the tip of Cape Cod, as they navigate the tides of adulthood, change, love, and unexpected loss.

Performance: October 20th

The Place Between

Last week I got the chance to record some demos for my favorite composing duo, @gatesandsnippe for their new musical The Place Between: A New Lovecraftian Musical. I've been helping bring Sonia to life since our collaborative classes with the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at Tisch in the Fall of 2018, and it was such an honor to continue to bring her to life post-grad! Thank you Justin and Celine, praise Cthulhu.

Galen Hooks Method Classic Workshop

Over spring break I had the absolute pleasure and honor to participate in the master choreographer Galen Hooks' master class/workshop for dancers. This was truly life changing. Galen is such a wonderful human and such an inspiring artist. I got to get more comfortable in my improv movement and learn her choreography to The High by Kelea (go to my videos to check it out!).

Working

I am so excited to share that I will be participating in my first main stage production at the New Studio on Broadway. Based on the book by Studs Turkel by the same name, Working is a documentation of the real life working class of America. All of the text and lyrics are taken from his book, and therefore, from the mouths of real people. I will be portraying Rose Hoffman, the teacher.
