We are doing it, ladies and germs! We are going to Scotland! I am directing Cleo, Theo & Wu and MESS, to fantastic plays by Kirsten Vangsness.
I am delighted to share this interview I did with Hannah about directing:
I am overjoyed to be performing in a reading of in THIS IS NOT A TRUE STORY this Thursday 4/12. Join Artists at Play at USC Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena for this FREE performance.
Written by Preston Choi and directed by Reena Dutt, THIS IS NOT A TRUE STORY unravels the history of Orientalist art, theatre, and the danger of fiction becoming reality. When the heroine of Madame Butterfly (Lisa Sanaye Dring as CIOCIO) completes her tragic suicide, she wakes up trapped in a never-ending loop of her story. Then Miss Saigon (VyVy Nguyen as KIM) is born, thrusting another heroine into the deadly cycle, until a mysterious office woman (Jennifer Soo as KUMIKO/TAKAKO) throws the world out of balance. (Also featuring Rob Nagle.)
I have just finished an amazing week-long workshop with The New Group, developing my play as part of the No Limits Reading Series. Under the guidance of Thomas Bradshaw and Ian Morgan, I got to collaborate with brilliant director Shariffa Ali and some incredibly talented performers to develop The 626 Project. The play has found a new title: The Wicked One.
