San Diego is getting pied! Gordon and I are beyond thrilled that The Loneliest Girl in the World is slated for a world premiere at Diversionary Theatre in San Diego next year! The production will be directed by Diversionary's artistic director Matt Morrow, and will run from May 24-July 2, 2018.
Founded in 1986, Diversionary’s mission is to “provide an inspiring and thought provoking theatrical platform to explore complex and diverse LGBT stories, which influence the larger cultural discussion” and to “foster and amplify the next generation of LGBT voices by providing live entertainment in a dynamic, inclusive and provocative environment that celebrates and preserves our unique culture.” You can check out their season announcement or read up on their whole season on their website.
The production is supported by a generous grant from the National Alliance for Musical Theatre -- you can check out other grant recipients here!
Gordon and I are excited to be working with the American Musical Theatre Academy this spring! Our superfriend/MD collaborator extraordinaire is leading the students in AMTA's one-year preparatory program in four weeks of masterclasses on Gordon and my work. The students are great, and we've got them working on material from six of our shows. What fun!
How nice of the lovely Megan Loughgran to include an interview with me on Yale.nyc! Check out the article here to see me getting my chat on about musicals and milkshakes.
So excited to be heading to Yale this June for the Alumni Writers' Residency at the Yale Institute for Music Theatre! Gordon and I will be using our two weeks there to work on our show REB + VoDKa + ME. I will also be using the time to eat my weight in late-night-dumplings at Ivy Noodle. We had such a wonderful experience developing Pregnancy Pact at YIMT in 2011 -- I couldn't be more excited to be going back with a new show.
Gordon and I are so excited to be starting work with our new agent, Mark Orsini at Bret Adams Ltd. Wahooo!
Breast Picture, a movie I wrote music for, made by my wonderful film-making collaborator Jonathan Smith, is now available to stream on Amazon Prime! Check it out, why dontcha?
After almost ten years of collaborating, Gordon and I finally took the plunge...we made a joint website! Check it out!
I had such an amazing time attending my first Cast and Loose at Joe's Pub! Here's Lynne performing the song we wrote for the show!
Gordon and I were so psyched to be the featured writing team for Underscore Theatre Co's Galentine's Day concert -- featuring a whole set of woman-power songs (we've got a couple of those...) We were disappointed we couldn't be there for the show, but oh look, there's a video from the show!
So looking forward to Prospect's next IGNITE Concert on Friday, March 10th at 8pm at the Times Center (242 West 41st street). The show will will feature sneak peeks at projects authored or co-authored by women writers - who will be there to talk about their process. Come hear Sara, Amy and I chat about Elevator Heart and present two songs from the show! Here's what Broadway World has to say.
