Is my mic on?
2016 has been a good one, so far. Here's a few things I've been up to:
1. I took Improv Level 1 at the PIT and fell totally in love. I've done sketch/improv before, but never in a class setting. I saw lots of free PIT shows, went to a few 10ks, and had an absolute blast performing in our showcase. I'd say my only regret is not taking it sooner, but the people in my class were PURE GOLD. I start Level 2 in a few weeks!
2. I'm currently taking advanced scene study at ESPA/Primary Stages. Right now, we're working on Stupid Fucking Bird and focusing on incorporating the Études technique. I loooove this play. Furthermore, I'm learning so much from how the technique we're utilizing is breaking open the story. I also performed in ESPA's Detention #33: Big Trouble at Jimmy's No. 43 in the East Village in March.
3. Shows I've loved: [title of team] & Royals at the PIT, Bianca Maroquín at 54 Below, and Body of an American at Primary Stages. Show that I really freaking loved: Glory of the World at BAM. If we're talking television, give me The People vs. OJ Simpson and the latest season of Broad City, for sure.
4. I'm writing! I've always been interested in and enjoyed creating stories as a writer, but never with the intention of sharing it eventually. At present, everything I'm working on is in the super-beginning stages, but nothing holds you accountable to finishing your work quite like an announcement on the www.
And lately, I'm the happiest person now that daylight and daffodils are making a comeback. More soon!
