Hi Everyone, Happy Summer! Since my last update, I’ve had an exciting few months of research and writing for my upcoming play, Sell/Buy/Date. As many of you know, this is my first full-length play since Bridge & Tunnel, and I'm beyond excited to share it with you. I'd also like to tell you about an upcoming performance in New York on August 7th.
Summerstage, East River State Park: Friday, August 7th
In conjunction with the Nuyorican Poets Cafe and Summerstage, I will be performing live at East River State Park on Friday, August 7th. I am looking forward to my first public performance for New York audiences this year, especially as a long time fan of Summerstage myself. The performance is also free!
