In Rehearsals with Queens Shakespeare

Rehearsals began this week for Queens Shakespeare’s  production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  I’m playing the fairy Cobweb, and I’m also the assistant stage manager. Our show will run November 4-9 at the Spa Little Theatre in Saratoga Springs, NY and November 11-13 at the American Theatre of Actors in NYC.
