Save the date for The Glass Piano in New York City

I am very excited for my first full-length production at Columbia University! The Glass Piano is a new play inspired by the true story of Princess Alexandra Amelie of Bavaria, who believed she had swallowed a grand piano made of glass. It will be a short run, so mark your calendars now if you would like to see it. More details on times and tickets to follow.
