Happy Spring! Winter has finally left us in Philly. It's been an exciting few months - I am currently staring graduation in the face and trying not to blink!
Updates: 1. Romeo and Juliet! We opened Wednesday, and we run through May 18th. The 9-show-a-week schedule is rough, but I am loving the show. It was a good process, and I'm super proud of what we've created. In our production, we feature four contemporary sonnets written by students and adults. As part of the promotion for the show, we recorded the top ten sonnets (there was an open call for submissions) to release to the public. So here's a mildly embarrassing video of me doing one (to the right). Check out the show! (Fb event).
2. Breed X! I was in New York for a few days this March, filming a project called Breed X. To learn about the project, check out their kickstarter and their facebook. Or, yaknow, check out a really terrifying photo from the shoot (to the right). I played "The Guide." The project is written and directed by the fabulous Audrey Hamm. Makeup by Alisa Ortiz. Yay film!
3. By Tuesday -- I also have begun shooting a Penn student film, called "By Tuesday," produced by Bent Button Productions. It is written and directed by Ann Molin. Will post the finished product when we finish! It's about a couple college-age room mates. I play a lady named Chloe. So far, I've gotten to eat a lot of popcorn on camera. Which has been fabulous.
4. Directors Gathering - I also recently photographed the first monthly "Directors Gathering" salon meeting. The DG is a fabulous service organization for Philadelphia theatremakers. Check out their website and facebook, and the album from the event!
5. Henry IV: Your Prince and Mine -- I have been cast as a lieutenant in the army for the annual Shakespeare in Clark Park summer show. They're doing Henry IV! Haven't started yet....but thrilled to be a part of it. Apparently they're using a HUGE civilian army. Cool beans.
6. Dischord - Dischord A Capella, a fabulous group on Penn's campus, recently had their spring concert. I took a bunch of promotional photos. Check out a few of my favorites to the right. Will be uploading more soon, under "recent captures" on my photography page. Also: their website! Their facebook!
7. Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo - The theatre group iNtuitons (I'm on the board! I directed for them this past fall!) just had their spring show. Check out some rehearsal room shots I took during the process. Fabulous group. Oh, and their website!
Whew. Other things brewing/upcoming -- Stuff Happens is still in the process of casting. Can't wait to get started. Circle Mirror Transformation is likely happening in May! We had to change dates, due to an issue getting rights...but now it's full steam ahead. And.....Yalla, the bellydance troupe at UPenn, also has an upcoming show. I will be shooting some promo shots on Monday. Photos to come!
