Through a mighty effort, Great River Shakespeare Festival is producing its 17th season this summer, working outside for the first time to keep everyone safe. We're performing in Winona's Levee Park and very excited to be right downtown. We've reimagined The Tempest for this new circumstance and it's going to be thrilling, thoughtful and full of heart. I'm particularly excited to get to work with the amazing Melissa Maxwell as Prospero.

 

If you're in the Midwest I hope you'll come and see. We open June 25th.

I'm back with Connecticut Repertory Theatre directing Men on Boats ONLINE this fall.

 

We're all on a dizzyingly steep learning curve figuring out how to tell this story live in virtual space. I'm SO PROUD of the work this team has done and the boldness of CRT for even proposing the idea. We've got a cast and crew working all over the country, we've never been in the same room together, and yet we've put together a compelling, funny, thoughtful play. I hope you'll check it out. We open October 9th.

The 19th Amendment Project at Burning Coal Theatre Company

I'm so excited to be working again with Burning Coal Theatre in Raleigh, NC. They've commissioned 14 short plays by women and non-binary playwrights working locally nationally and internationally, each writing about the passage of the 19th Amendment and its enduring impact 100 years later.

 

Burning Coal has partnered with companies all over central North Carolina to produce the plays for an online festival, starting August 17th.

Dear GRSF...

Here's my response to a community question about some of the decisions we make in the theatre when conceiving a production. Great River Shakespeare Festival has been posting questions and answers from members of their community and company all summer as part of their #GRSFEverywhere pandemic-era programming. 

Something to make you smile

Shakespeare's Test Kitchen

Great River Shakespeare Festival has been producing a web series "Shakespeare's Test Kitchen" as a way to connect, cook, nerd out and smile a little during this crazy time. My partner, Jon Finnegan, and I made an episode. Please enjoy. 

Covid-19 Update

An almost-opening and a show postponed one year

Like all of us in the theatre community, my professional life has been shaken up this spring. Our production of Men on Boats at Connecticut Repertory Theatre almost opened but the campus at UCONN, where CRT lives, closed for in-person events just as we finished tech rehearsals. The ensemble of actors, designers and technicians rallied to make a single performance possible for ourselves and our close colleagues. It was a special, heart-felt event and I'm proud to have been a part of it.

 

Great River Shakespeare Festival has postponed their 17th season one year, so I hope to see all of you in Winona in the summer of 2021 to see The Tempest. I'm very excited about what's in store.

 

Meanwhile, I'm safe and healthy and able to ride out this storm with people who love me. I'm feeling pretty lucky. Stay safe, all. Here's to whatever we make next.
