Happy New Year!! It seems like January is always a little bleak. The holidays are over and a million shows close (usually one I am in). Last year we closed THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES on January 3rd and this year THE EXTRAORDINARY ORDINARY ended right before the holidays.
The good news is that this year I jumped right into a new project after New Years Day. I was lucky enough to have been brought in to work on a brand-new musical called RATED P last summer. We did a reading through the Midtown Direct Theatre Company in South Orange, NJ. Read more about the Midtown Direct Theatre Company here.
RATED P was such a wonderful experience this summer and I was thrilled when Sandy Rustin (c0- founder of Midtown Direct as well as a writer of RATED P) told me that SOPAC is going forward with the show and producing a 2 week workshop in January and a fully staged production in May.
So here we are. All back in the room together again working on a brand new musical. MY FAVORITE!!! I am surrounded by hysterically funny and fun people. The show was written by Sandy with Dan Lipton (music) and Dave Rossmer (music and lyrics). Directed by Jeremy Dobrish. Musically Directed by Meg Zervoulis, Musically staged by Rachel Bress and starring Me, David Josefsberg, Charlie Pollock and Joanna Young. Here we are together after the reading in August:
