I'm an artist who knows there are many ways to tell compelling stories. As a playwright and librettist, I believe theatre is a distinct art form and its stories can only be told from the stage. My hope is to write plays that invite questions, rather than answers, and to create art that opens dialogue, resists cynicism, and is a catalyst for change. I would rather see a daring and flawed play, rather than one that is safe and only pleases. I would rather write a play that is earnest - rather than ironic.
"it’s not just about the art, but the process, ‘not about the nouns, but the verbs’!"
"Virtuosity is for the hopeful, perfectionism is for assholes"
"Many believe it's not the artists' role to also be an activist, or that creative outcomes are compromised - and some like me, believe that the time has come for that privileged position to be over, and we have a responsibility to actively engage in the most vital issues of our time."
