a bit about my dramaturgy

Sally and her brother are bored on a rainy day, when the Cat in the Hat appears with tricks and things and games to play. Their day is filled with mischief and imagination despite protests from their fish. That is, until their mom returns home. Join us for Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s story that illustrates boredom is truly just a state of mind.

What would you hold sacred if everything you knew was destroyed? In three acts, Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play is the story of survival and reinvention in a post-apocalyptic world. What starts as a group of friends casually recounting a Simpson’s episode morphs—over the course of more than 80 years—into a completely new form of storytelling.

Welcome to the underground drag scene, a place where many gay men create families for themselves. The legendary House of Lights is one such family. As they prepare for a competitive ball with a rival house, each member confronts their identity within the family. Wig Out! is an electrifying tale of community, queer sub-culture, and sexuality by Theatre School alumnus Tarell Alvin McCraney.

What happens when the tiny inhabitants of a secluded island seek to join the developed world and form a basketball team? When one of their players, a down-at-heel American journeyman named Michael Jordan (not the Michael Jordan), won't shoot or pass the ball, he ensures a losing season for his vertically-challenged team. Playing out entirely in the Q and A format of post-game conferences, Michael Jordan in Lilliput combines the fantastical with the mundane and the expansive with the irrelevant.
