On the Fight side of things - I am gearing up for several fun projects starting with ROCK OF AGES with my wonderful friends at the Mercury Theatre, opening at the end of July.
"Be the change you want to see in the world," - a paraphrase of Ghandi, 1913
Teaching young actors the safety and fun of stage combat will be a focus of mine this summer, in addition to traveling! First up, I will be working on NOISES OFF with the awesome students of Downers Grove North High School, as well as starting rehearsals for the Illinois Theatre Association's All State production of SHE KILLS MONSTERS. (I am squeezing in a trip to Alaska too - SO EXCITED!) Happily, I will also be working on another new script by my friend Mark Pracht. He is also directing his second installment of his trilogy about the history of comic books. THE INNOCENCE OF SEDUCTION goes up at the beginning of September.
Balance is important to me, but feel free to reach out if you have a script you are looking to have reviewed or theatrical administrative work you have questions on as I am happy to help!
