Nothing like a great new play workshop to kick off a new year! The brilliant creative team of The Way West -- playwright Mona Mansour, director Hayley Finn, and dramaturg Margot Melcon -- gathered with the cast for five days this January to get a head start on the production. We'll begin rehearsals in earnest on March 24.
I am thrilled to have the chance to work with this incredible group of performers: Anne Darragh, Kat Zdan, Stacy Ross, and Hugo Carbajal. We also had the pleasure of working with the show's composers, Sam Misner and Megan Smith of the band Misner and Smith. I am picking and strumming my little guitar every day and can't wait to sing and play their songs onstage this spring!
