On Sunday, November 4th, my band fajjr+ali will make our Pianos debut in the Lower East Side. We are super excited to perform a full set of our original music at this New York staple. The show will also take place on my birthday, so what better way to help me celebrate than come out and support us! Tickets are $8 and can be purchased online or at the door!
I'm very excited to have been cast in a workshop of the new musical Eh Dah? Questions for My Father written by Aya Aziz and directed by Arpita Mukherjee. Originally an award winning solo show, it has now been expanded into a larger cast and this workshop will help to continue the development process before premiering at Next Door at NYTW.
I'm honored to be taking part in a collaboration between Palestinian and Native American artists. The collaboration will be a four day workshop where we explore the similar histories each community shares and will culminate in an evening of play readings written by or dealing with Palestinian and Native Americans. The project is produced by Donkeysaddle Projects and the Eagle Project and will take place at the American Indian Community House on Sunday October 21st at 7pm.
I'm super excited to have booked my first major TV role in Ramy, a new series for Hulu which will debut in 2019. Ramy follows an Egyptian-American Muslim growing up in New Jersey while navigating his various identities in modern America. I will have a co-star role in one episode of the first season.
