Erin Danielle Krebs, who Julia and I first met at the 2017 Yale Institute and currently the Directing Fellow at Barrington Stage Company, presented excerpts from Pregnancy Pact on July 25 & 26. The scenes featured BSC Musical Theatre Conservatory actors Caitlin Alvarez, Solange Gosselin, Sonia Joffe, Carly Mazer, Jenna Meadows, Maya McQueen, and Liam Munn with music director Darren R. Cohen. We didn’t get to venture up to Pittsfield to see it, but our sources let us know they did an amazing job. (Our sources being the wonderful Sam Heldt, who’s currently starring in the world premiere of Fall Springs at Barrington!) We’re so excited that the show resurfaced for a moment in New England, and so glad that they had a meaningful experience with it!
I’m so excited to be sharing our draft of The Magnificent Seven in a free reading at Urban Stages next Monday, July 15 at 8pm. No reservations necessary, so come on up/down/over/in and hear what we’ve been working on!
Julia and I are so happy to be working once again with director Nikki DiLoreto (with whom we worked when we first developed the project with Fresh Ground Pepper and who has gone on to work on Kiss Me, Kate and the upcoming Soft Power), movement consultant Sunny Hitt (with whom we’re excited to work for the first time), stage manager Melissa Erickson (with whom we just worked on last month’s reading of REB+VoDKa+ME), and music director Rich Silverstein (with whom we work always)!
