My Pandemic actor activity included being a part of Burrowing Artists Vol. 2 (@burrowing.artists). 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)
In the Works at The Duplex
So thrilled to be lending my voice to another musical production involving Justin Gates (see below with The Place Between)!

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.

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.
