Y'all, we are in rehearsals for an actual production of the The Magnificent Seven at Theatre Row in midtown Manhattan. There are leotards. There is choreography. There is a set painted in a color we're calling "sports blue". Being in rehearsal with this cast and creative team is a dream come true. Here's all the info!

I'm so excited that Gordon and my show, Something Blue, will be included in the WoW's NoW festival of staged readings in Ithaca, NY. I can't wait to get to work on musical theatre in my hometown, and among such good company:
EXTENDED STAY by Jenny Stafford & Scotty Arnold
ONWARD AND UPWARD by Charlie Romano & Will Wegner
SOMETHING BLUE by Julia Meinwald & Gordon Leary
The readings will run November 4-20 at The Cherry Arts.
Gordon and I had a ball chatting about gymnastics on the What Makes You Think podcast with Nicole Langevin-- check out our episode here!
