You Can’t Afford This Show at the PIT Loft

As part of my residency with Rebel Theatre Ensemble, I wrote a solo show about the last two years of my mentor’s life. That mentor was Zachary Solov, choreographer of the Metropolitan Opera Ballet, and a former dancer with Balanchine’s first touring company and Ballet Theatre.

This coincided with a $19 million lawsuit filed against me (and others) by the FTC and DOJ.

This year I determined to whip what I wrote for Rebel into performance shape and take it to Edinburgh in 2018. With the help of Peter Michael Marino (my workshop teacher at the PIT), Alisa Kwitney (who gives me more writing support than I deserve), Phoebe Leonard (who understands the importance of drinking during a writing meeting), and Alex Tuller (who has supported my every effort on this front), I’ll present a 30 minute version of it tonight at the PIT Loft at 154 W. 29th Street at 7:30pm.

Hope you can make it. TIX»
