What a year of firsts!

I took on some new roles – theater producer, album producer, Covid safety manager, press rep, props designer – but mostly got the chance to stay in my favorite role: collaborator.

I feel so lucky to have continued to work with some of my longstanding favorite artists and built relationships with some of my new favorite artists: Hannah Avery, Michael Blancafor, Seamus Buxton, Jennifer Chi, Shannon Clarke, Nikki DiLoreto, Mike Epperhart, Quin Friedrich, Holly Gould, Ellie Handel, Sam Heldt, MinJi Kim, Zac Larson, Kylie Lavrenchik, Amy Linden, Ellen Condon Macy, Evan Maltby, Paul Morgan, Jeremy Pletter, Sarah Plotkin, Allison Posner, Alex Ratner, Meredith Rise, Lynne Marie Rosenberg, Libby Servais, Hannah Sgambellone, Josslyn Shaw, Christine Sienicki, Kelly Soares, Ally Turlo, Jessica Walker, Elisabeth Weidner & Racquel Williams.

I look forward to new collaborators, new challenges, and new ideas (and getting to see some of the hard work of the last year coming to fruition!) in 2023.

2022 Relentless Award

We are honored that REB+VoDKa+ME received an Honorable Mention for the 2022 Relentless Award, in honor of Adam Schlesinger, for works that “are challenging, exhibit fearlessness, exude passion, and are relentlessly truthful.”

It made it that much better to see that some of our very favorite friends and writers who are making some of my very favorite musicals were also recognized.

Thanks to the American Playwriting Foundation for this honor!

Something Blue in Ithaca

Walking on Water Productions’ New Original Works Festival included readings of Something Blue! I’m so glad that we had the chance to return to this project for the first time since 2020 so that we could do some long-awaited rewriting.

It was lovely to get to present our work in Julia’s hometown of Ithaca, NY, and was especially lovely to work with some wonderful new friends and collaborators: director Sarah Plotkin, music director Jeremy Pletter, stage manager Quin Frederich, and actors Hannah Avery (Joelle), Seamus Buxton (Geoff), and Paul Morgan (Casey).

The show was presented November 6, 12 & 18 at the Cherry Artspace. The festival included readings of Extended Stay by Jenny Stafford & Scotty Arnold and Onward and Upward by Charlie Romano & Will Wegner.

Thanks to Priscilla Hummel for including our work in WoW’s festival!

The Magnificent Seven: The Album

It’s happening! We re-assembled the wonderful cast and band of The Magnificent Seven at Theatre Row to record our first-ever cast recording!

The album was recorded September 23, 25 & 26 and October 5, 2022 at John Kilgore Sound & Recording and The Bunker Studios, engineered by John Kilgore. The album is produced by Steve Kyriakis & Matt Donaldson of MDSK Productions.

We can’t wait to share it with you soon… The album will be available on your favorite streaming platforms in early 2023!
