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.

See the show’s Facebook page for more info.

Broke & Broker (now with an ampersand!)

This September, my short play “Broke & Broker” will go up at Manhattan Repertory Theatre as part of their Fall One-Act Competition. Rehearsals have been going swimmingly. I’m excited to see how it turns out.

A brief synopsis of the play:

After a pleasant meal in a charming restaurant, a woman leaves her waitress a two-thousand dollar tip. Two glasses of Scotch later, her motives come into question.

Written by Rachel Blithe
Directed by Grace Riley
Performed by Rachel Alt and Shannon Lyne Black
