I had the incredible opportunity to work with the amazing folks at the Cleveland Play House on a series of monologues that were filmed and will be shown in schools. Hopefully, I'll be able to share some clips from that piece, but it was terrific to be able to rehearse and film the piece in one day and be able to discover the comedy and the truth in the moment. Loved it!


I also spent April working at the New York Theatre Workshop on a new play by 2050 Fellow Francis Weiss Rabkin with music by Leslie Allison. Being in a room with very smart actors and creative team encouraged me to share and collaborate fully. And I discovered that I actually might have an inner writer within me! Or at least an inner script supervisor. :) I am very thankful to Francis and Leslie for letting me play with their creation.
