Thanks be to the theatrical stars for aligning and putting me in a room with Tyne Rafaeli. If you don’t know her or her work, you should and you will!
I am beyond grateful to be working with such a strong collaborator who truly facilitates and shapes as she sculpts. No idea too big or too small. Everyone has a voice. It’s no wonder Othello is turning out to be an amazing show.
The Young Company at Classic Stage is made up of some incredibly talented young professionals, many of whom are completing or have completed the MFA Acting program at Columbia University. There are only four performances open to the public so get your ass down to Classic Stage Company and see some highly original, relevant Shakespeare that is primed to keep even the wildest of middle schoolers engaged. Show opens February 29th and runs to March 16th. Tickets available on the CSC website.

Update: After much manipulation of rehearsal schedules and venues in order to craft the most complete piece of theatre possible, I am happy to announce that my role as Fight Director for this production quickly shifted to Movement Director before finally settling into Assistant Director. I am again incredibly grateful to a generous cast of actors and an inspiring phenom of a director in Tyne for trusting me and to Kate Dorman and Jeff Griffin at CSC for bringing me on board in the first place.
