Heathers 12

HEATHERS, THE MUSICAL is about as much fun as I can remember having on a show and one of the most perfessional companies I've had the pleasure to work with. During tech week the cast starting coming down with fevers and coughs. On opening weekend we only had the entire cast for one performance and every other show had a different combination of understudies and standbys.  And yet every sold-out performance received a standing ovation.  HEATHERS is edgey, uncomfortable, incredibily well written, and fun!

The Rainmaker

I can finally announce that I'll be directing THE RAINMAKER for Sonoma Arts Live in the fall of 2017. This is a play I've been waiting a long time to direct.  I first read it in high school and loved it immediately. The beauty of the language, the desparateness of the situation, the call to see life as it should be and not as it is. THE RAINMAKER is a play for all time.

George M Heathers

COMPANY has opened and I am quite proud of this production (photos coming soon).  The cast and design team have been spot on and the quality of their work brings every performance to life. Now it is time to shift gears for two very different shows, GEORGE M! and HEATHERS.  

george mI'm thrilled to be working with 6th Street Playhouse again to direct GEORGE M!.  "George who?".  George M. Cohan, the man that owned Broadway from 1904 to 1919. Almost forgotten today, Cohan was known as much for his ego and bad temper as for his shows and songs. He was Kanye, Lin Manuel, and Shorenstein-Hays all roled into one.

Company New

"Isn't COMPANY dated?” is a question I heard frequently while preparing for this production. My answer? Absolutely not. In our Tinder, Grindr, Bumble society, a musical about why anyone would want to be in a committed relationship is more relevant than ever.

Peter Web 10

Having just opened PETER AND THE STARCATCHER I can say that PETER was about the most difficult and complicated showsI have ever staged.  Fair warning to all taking it on, PETER is a "play with music" to the same extent that WEST SIDE STORY or CHORUS LINE are "musicals with dance".

Marina and I are rolling up our sleeves on the production and design work for Peter and the Starcatcher.  Such an exciting show, this will be one to watch.  Get your tickets now!

Very happy to announce that I'll be directing COMPANY for The Novato Theater Company in Spring of 2017!  Auditions will be in December 2016, rehearsals beginning in February. I am looking forward to working with NTC again.
