Next Monday, March 28th there will be a concert reading of playwright (and faculty member) Karen Sunde's intriguing play To Moscow at the Players Club in New York City. It's being produced by our recent MFA graduate Steve Ashworth (from Edmonton, Canada) and stars, among others, our program's Casting Director and faculty member/actor Lisa Bostnar as well as Emmy-award winning actor Gordon Clapp, who works closely with us in readings of student scripts on a regular basis. The play is being directed by Robert Lawson, who also is on our faculty.
You can check out all aspects of the project and how it's breaking new ground at tomoscowtheplay.com.
For me, however, what makes this project unique (and others like it) is that it's a direct result of our MFA program and the creative energy emanating from it. Our faculty, alums, and current students are bursting with creativity and are talented working professionals (emerging and established) who are building an expansive network from coast to coast and beyond.
I feel privileged to be the Director of this program that we launched three years ago. And I'm increasingly excited and proud of our "family" and the good work that's radiating from it.
If you're in NYC next Monday, March 28th, I urge you to join us.
