A Pact deferred
I’m sad to say that performances for the NYU production of Pregnancy Pact have been cancelled now that NYU has suspended all events in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. While I’m disappointed that we won’t get to share the hard work of the amazing ten actors pictured here with you all (not to mention the creative team behind the scenes) I’m so grateful to have had the chance to see the show run in the rehearsal room in front of a small audience of family and teachers and friends.
Thanks to Sarah Schlesinger and Kent Gash for giving us the opportunity; and thanks to our wonderful collaborators: director Catie Davis, music director Mark Evans, choreographer Nancy Renée Braun , stage manager Alannah O’Hagan, assistant director Sarah DeMarino, assistant stage manager Hannah Ford, and actors (pictured at left, clockwise) Cuinlin Pedretti (Cory/Justin), Caroline Reinstadtler (Jenn), Mary Jardine (Maddie), Scottie Schwefel (Brynn), Tiana Monique Jung (Sansanee), Jennifer Daly (Kaylee), Kylie Lavrenchik (Jeanelle), Ruby Zinner (Jeanelle), Chanel Morehead (Jenn), and Maddie Dyer (Maddie.)
This has been a wonderful second act for the show – we’ve gotten to tackle some meaningful rewrites and think through what this show means in 2020 – and Julia and I truly hope we’ll have a chance to share it again before too long.
