Spring/ Summer 2022 projects:
I’m directing Twelfth Night, Or what you will at the ASC. It runs June 9 – August 6, in repertory with Larissa Lury’s direction of the world premiere of L M Feldman’s Thrive, Or What You Will, winner of the ASC’s Shakespeare’s New Contemporaries project (and short-listed for this year’s Lambda Literary Prize for LGBTQ Drama.)
And then, I’m popping over to Michigan to direct Much Ado about Nothing at Hope Summer Repertory Theater for their 50th anniversary season, to conclude my Spring and Summer skip through the comedies.

Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?
