I’m so excited to announce that my latest work, The Feather Doesn’t Fall Far from the Wing: A Play with Music opens next week on Wednesday May 9, 2018 at the prestigious Signature Theatre of New York as a part of Columbia University’s Playwrights’ Thesis Festival.
Through the perfect elixir of poetry, song, and dance The Feather Doesn’t Fall Far from the Wing: A Play with Music — written, composed and directed by yours truly — reimagines the fall of Lucifer described in scripture. I bring into fantasy a sister who ultimately takes Lucifer’s place as heaven’s new minister of music and a jealous brother who cannot be trusted to keep her secrets. It is with great honor that I can say this new work is under the mentorship of Tony Award winning Broadway producer Ron Simons and the tutelage of Tony Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage.
God has blessed me with an amazing cast and team that has been an absolute joy to work with, and I know they are going to dazzle you in their performance. Reserve your FREE seats today for this family friendly show at the link above! Hint: This is a perfect way to get a jump start on celebrating Mother’s Day 🙂

See you there!

My Interview with the Broadway Cast of “Jitney”

Though playwright August Wilson is no longer alive, his presence is still very much with us. In fact, he’s still making history even after his death. Jitney, opening January 19, 2017 at Manhattan Theatre Club, will be his tenth play featured on Broadway, and I had the honor of talking with the cast. Check out the video above to see what some of these talented actors have to say about this legendary playwright and the impact he has had on their lives.

Until next time,
