I'm beyond thrilled to be returning to perform in American Dreams. I was lucky to be a part of the world premiere at Cleveland Public Theatre in 2018 and am so excited to be bringing this important show to audiences around the country. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the original tour had to move to virtual, but in doing so we've been able to partner with a number of theaters around the country who will present the show. The show imagines a world where the only way into the US is through a game show competition where three contestants must compete for citizenship. The audience is involved every step of the way and their real votes decide who will win American Dreams. More info including showtimes can be found here!

After months of the theater world not knowing when we can get back to performing, I was so excited to get together (virtually) with some Target Margin artists to start devising work based around touch and this new strange isolated world we are in. Through some informal rehearsals we began developing some material, and they will continue developing through September for some intimate performances in October. The showing will be a part of a series of free, socially distanced performances reflecting on loss and celebrating wonder that take place in various locations in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
