A Very Nouveau Holiday 2017

For the fifth year in a row I have a play in Nouveau 47 Theatre's A Very Nouveau Holiday collection of ten-minute plays. This event is usually quirky, thoughtful, hilarious, pensive and satirical! 

This year I am directing the world premiere of my own play Langdon, The Seasonal Barista. I am also directing Jonathan Kravetz's (formerly of Dallas and now based in NYC) heart-breaking piece Mr. Crispy. 

Langdon is a hilarious exploration of FOMO gone wrong. It features a bear who works at a coffeeshop during the winter instead of hibernating and the trouble he has navigating the workplace. Mr. Crispy is a sci-fi tear-jerker that deals with the last night of a relationship between a failed screenwriter and the song-writing friend he has an infatuation with.

These two pieces are joined by short plays by area writers Franky Gonzalez, Allison Hibbs, Jim Kuenzer, Ben Schroth, Greg Silva and Christopher Stephen Soden! 

A rockstar ensemble of directors, besides myself, include Andra Hunter, Becki McDonald, and fellow College of Santa Fe alumn David Meglino!

Actors in the project include Monalisa Amidar, JR Bradford, Cameron Casey, Emily Faith, Robert Long, Chris Messersmith, Charles Themayor Ratcliff and Jerome Stein!

Playing Fridays thru Mondays beginning December 8 - 23, 2017. Showtimes are 8:15, except Sundays (which offer 2 PM matinee times). At the Margo Jones Theatre, Fair Park, Dallas TX.
