The Violent Delights, and Gordon's Alive!

These Violent Delights: Staged Reading - December 9th Carrie Hamilton Theatre at Pasadena Playhouse Earlier this month, I had a ridiculously fun reading of This Hungry Churchyard, an Act VI, Scene I of Romeo and Juliet (thank you Sebastian, Tosca, Ian, Bill and Pamela!). I just found out that I've been awarded an Individual Artist Grant from the City of Pasadena to adapt that short into an evening-length piece! Whoo-hoo! That play will be titled These Violent Delights and will continue the story of life in Verona post-R&J. It'll be delightful, and violent, and hopefully a hoot.

Many thanks to the Pasadena Cultural Affairs Department, the Pasadena Arts Commissioners, and Danny Feldman and Pasadena Playhouse for hosting the reading! Details will be shared as I have them. :-) Carrie Hamilton Theatre Pasadena Playhouse 39 S. El Molino Ave. Pasadena, CA 91101

Details Soon!


Flash Gordon: The Musical - the Play is getting revived as part of Force of Nature's "Best of Rush!" My piece is an homage to IP-driven musicals, self-loathing artists, and my all-time favorite sci-fi movie masterwork (soundtrack by Queen). Three Thursdays in August as part of a Smörgåsbord of shorts picked from six previous festivals.


27 Ways I Didn't Say "Hi" to Laurence Fishburne will be produced later this year at York College of Pennsylvania!

This is production #8 for the little play that received it's world premiere at the Humana Festival... still one of the best theatrical experiences of my life. :-)



EVERYTHING THAT NEVER HAPPENED SEP 27–NOV 04 Written by Sarah B. Mantell Directed by Jessica Kubzansky Boston Court Pasadena The Merchant of Venice missed the point. But whether or not you know Shakespeare or Shylock, this provocative new work plays between the gaps in the classic tale to expose the realities of Jewish history. Get tickets >>
