I'm excited to be performing in Serials at The Flea once again for their 50th cycle! Each weekend 5 plays compete against each other in a late night competition. At the end of the weekend, the top 3 shows based on audience votes will get to write the next episode. I will be performing in the first weekend of shows. In addition, in order to celebrate the 50th cycle of Serials, there will be live music every night. The first night, February 28th, will feature live pre-show music by fajjr+ali!
