Love and Information in WaPo's Top 10 Best Theatre 2017

"The restlessly creative Caryl Churchill’s montage of whizzing scenes was brilliantly imagined by director Michael Dove and a rangy 14-member ensemble. Churchill does not stipulate anything about the settings or the characters, so watching Forum Theatre’s choices for this experiential avalanche — flying by like a Twitter feed and implicitly asking what’s becoming of us as we process life at the pace of clicks and flickers — was a pivotal part of the heady exercise."

BUILDING THE WALL

A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan. I'll be during the DC production for Forum Theatre which runs April 27 through May 27, 2017. From the New York Times article announcing the play, "The play, set in 2019, is in the form of speculative fiction, or future history. In it, a writer interviews a prison executive awaiting sentencing for his role in a Trump administration effort to detain and deport large numbers of immigrants after a terrorist attack in the United States."

"AMERICAN THEATER AND POLITICS TODAY" panel discussion at Wilma theatre

I'm honored to be part of this event at the Wilma Theatre in Philadelphia on Monday, April 3, 2017 at 7:30pm looking at theatre's role in the current political climate.

"At a moment when our country is experiencing great political uncertainty and change, what role should the theater play in our political landscape? During the run of Adapt!, the Wilma will assemble a panel of American theater-makers from Boston to DC to dig into these questions, and more. In this panel discussion, discover what responsibility we have as an industry to participate in politics and what the limits of our scope are."
