We’re halfway through the run of Burning with Resonance Ensemble in New York. Responses have been heartfelt and positive. And what do you know, the New York Times liked it. Here’s another sweet feature about our Cy, Catherine Curtin, in HuffPost Queer Voices.

More performances coming up tonight, Thursday, and Saturday at 8:00 pm. After the show on Saturday, I’ll be staying for a talkback along with badass Outserve-SLDN activist, Master Chief (ret.) Jennifer L. Paty. Get your tickets now!

Farewell Housekeeper; Hello Burning

Last Saturday, Fresh Ink’s production of The Housekeeper closed after a terrific run. So many, many thanks to the cast, crew, FIT team, and everyone else who made it possible. And to the very gracious and engaged audiences who came and cried and said really nice things. Also, there were some reviews.

We had an especially wonderful performance and talkback on January 28, as part of our StageSource Night and Parity Party. Here’s a photo of the post-show discussion with our dramaturg Sara Brookner, me, and the cast:

Good times! But lest I catch up on my sleep too soon, within days of closing I’m off to New York for the first week of Burning, produced by Resonance Ensemble. We’re currently in previews–official opening is Sunday, February 7. Tickets available now! And be sure to also check out the exciting new production of Cyrano, which is playing in rep. Here’s a great feature about Resonance and their mission of revisiting and reinventing classic plays. And our amazing cast:
