I'm collaborating with Claire Kiechel on a short opera ballad about the ill-fated Kentucky inventor, Nathan Stubblefield. I know Thomas Edison tends to get most of the Kentukcy inventor love, but look up our dear Mr. Nathan. He cooked up some really interesting - and whacky - stuff.
20 voices in the round, tracks, movement, lights... it's going to be amazing. We had an amazing time working the the Professional Training Company last week. Those actors & apprentices were FEARLESS diving into some really complicated material!
Claire, Jeff Augustin, Sarah DeLappe, Ramiz Monsef are this year's recipients of the Actors Theatre of Louisville Commission. Eric Hoff is directing and Jessica Reese is our amazing dramaturg. It will be performed as part of the Humana Festival of New American Plays March 24 - April 9 in the Bingham Theatre.
