As a director, I enjoy staging the work in how we interact with the space and text through spontaneity. There is something remarkable when we see performers create those unexpected moments and surprises by allowing themselves to delve into the unknown. It is funny, hysterical, terrifying, fearless and original. It is all of these things and it’s what I crave when I walk into the theater. No two show is ever the same when it’s alive. I was excited to work on “The ABCs” written by my good friend, Monica Trausch, that is not only poignant and relevant but provides the players the freedom to explore beyond the extent of what they can do in the most physical way.
