UP NEXT – “A NEW BRAIN” AT 1ST STAGE!
I’m delighted to announce that my next project is A NEW BRAIN, opening March 26th at 1st Stage in Tysons, Virginia. With music by William Finn and book by Finn and collaborator James Lapine, this quirky musical has long been on my bucket list. Here’s the synopsis:
From the Tony Award-winning authors of Falsettos comes an energetic, sardonic, and comical musical. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital, surrounded by his nearest and dearest. Prior to his medical malady his career had him composing pop jingles for children’s television, but when what was thought to be a life-threatening neurological disorder turns out to be treatable, Gordon is grateful for a second chance to create his own art.
I’ll be portraying Mimi Schwinn, Gordon’s loving but neurotic mother. I’m looking forward to playing this challenging role and to making my debut at 1st Stage, partly because it’s been some time since I’ve worked in a theatre as intimate as theirs, and partly because it’s just a short commute from home!
A NEW BRAIN runs from March 26-April 19, 2020. For tickets and more information, visit the 1st Stage website: 1st Stage.
