At long last, the incredible piece I have been apart of for years is happening! Mabou Mines world premiere of “Imagining the Imaginary Invalid,” a new take on Molière, the last work the troupe’s founder, Ruth Maleczech, created before she died in 2013. I cannot wait to honor her incredible life and legacy by bringing this piece to life.
This week I will head to the O'Neill to play the character That Which Cannot Be Named in an incredible new play, A Power Play; Or, What's-its-Name by A. Rey Pamatmat and directed by May Adrales. The play was selected out of 1,200 submissions to be one of six plays chosen for the National Playwrights Conference.

It's been a dream of mine to work at this theater and I can't wait to get started. Virtually every major American playwright has been part of the Conference, including Julia Cho, Rebecca Gilman, Regina Taylor, John Guare, Israel Horovitz, David Henry Hwang, David Lindsay-Abaire, Adam Rapp, Lanford Wilson, Wendy Wasserstein and August Wilson.
