The Moors in American Theatre

Thanks to American Theatre for publishing the text of The Moors in the July/ August issue, and to David Adjmi for one of the most enjoyable conversations I’ve had about theatre in a while. FullSizeRender-16 The conversation is heavily condensed, so it doesn’t include the part where David and I reminisce about meeting each other in Iowa City, or the part where he gives me a mini refresher on existentialism (“You’re literally coming straight from Camus into this office at TCG.”) Be still my heart.

Happy Closing to The Moors

This one will always be close to my heart.

It’s a difficult and thankless job, but every time Hannah Cabell dumps out her bone-bucket, I’m thankful for those champions who accomplished it.
