Can it really be that two months have flown by since the last post? So much has happened in that time span I’m not sure where to begin: having a blast as a reader for a David O’Hara class, taking a great workshop with Tisha Ioli at Actors Launchpad, watching game after game in this World Cup (hasta la proxima El Tri). So much excitement as summer has bloomed. These last two weeks have been particularly special, however, as I had the wonderful privilege of teaching at my alma mater, Penn State!
For two weeks I got to work with some AMAZING young artists who are emerging musical theatre actors and saw them through an intensive acting program that culminated in two beautiful showcases. I’m so humbled that I was able to be part of the S.T.A.T.E program this summer, so lucky to be reminded of the delight of teaching, and so proud of the wonderful work my students did in those weeks. Thank you to Cecil Blutcher, Raymond Sage, and the rest of the PA team - old friends and new. All the best, especially, to all the wonderful actors who came through :)
After a few weeks in PA it feels good to be back in the Big Apple. The grind continues with more submissions, upcoming classes, and some new creative development ideas brewing…
