If You’re Looking For Me

I’m either in rehearsal at MCC, in rehearsal at Williamstown, on an Amtrak going between the two, or completely lost in a miasma of confusion, texting various company managers and asking them where I am/ should be.

Williamstown 2018 // DANGEROUS HOUSE

DANGEROUS HOUSE has gone through so many incarnations since its early drafts (and big love to the NNPN and InterAct Theatre who commissioned and produced the earliest of those drafts.) Of the pages that existed then, not many remain – and only two words out of the original title. Some plays are born knowing how to be what they are… and some have to shed their skins again and again until they get there. Screen Shot 2018-02-05 at 7.16.22 PM I’m so excited to dig in with Saheem Ali and the Williamstown crew, as this play gets up on its new feet for the first time in years, and takes a walk around…
