Flattered

Proud to have been a part of seven (SEVEN!!) of the productions listed in this lovely, flattering, and well-summed article.

Especially humbled by the kind words for Elegies: A Song Cycle and Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead.

Some excerpts:

Their production of ‘Dog Sees God,’ left me an absolute wreck and actually turned out to be the first play I ever bought the script of. When I saw ‘Elegies: A Song Cycle,’ we were all seated in a circle in a small, wooden building that looks more like a cottage than a theater. The actors didn’t have mics or anything so the end their harmonies were largely overshadowed by the enormous, heaving sobs from most of the audience members.

We were a group of artists who didn’t know how to talk to each other outside of art. And watching these shows together felt like we were whispering these secrets that were far too cliched and cheesy to tell each other in real life. Theater let us communicate.

Theater let us talk to each other when we were too afraid to say anything ourselves. Theater was, in many ways, our salvation.

Check it out.
