This fall, I get to cross three things off my bucket list! Playing Beneatha in A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry, getting my Equity card, and riding in a hot air balloon! I'll be working on the American classic this fall at THEATREWORKS Colorado Springs under the direction of Nambi E. Kelly (Native Son, Jazz). Excited is an understatement!
For the past few weeks I have been in rehearsals for SLUT: The Play by Katie Cappiello directed by Betsy True at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey (cues "Coming Home by Diddy). SLUT: The Play debuted at New York Fringe in 2013 and has since toured countless cities across the United States. It is a call to action and a reminder that slut-shaming is happening every day almost everywhere. SLUT is being developed in collaboration with The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater made possible by a generous grant from the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey in collaboration with the Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris Counties. Performances will take place at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center's Victoria Theater from April 25-27th. Our April 27th performance is open to the community, while all other shows will be performed for Newark Public School high school students. Purchase tickets here!
