All’s Well and Macbeth @ STC Academy

It’s been a busy year for me as I work towards my MFA in Classical Acting at Shakespeare Theatre Academy in DC. In December, I played LaFew in a condensed version of All’s Well That Ends Well directed by Dan Crane. And this semester, my classmates and I, led by Emma Jaster and Marcus Kyd, devised a physical hour long version of Macbeth together. We performed in an empty art gallery at the Corcoran School. Check out the photos from both productions.

Virtual Romeo and Juliet


with Siren Song Shakespeare Company

May 28th and 29th, 2020

Nothing’s more Shakespearean than having the plague shut down the theaters, but we now have 21st century solutions. Log on to Siren Song Shakespeare’s Facebook page on May 28th at 6pm EST, or their youtube channel on the 29th, to catch our virtual version of Shakespeare’s classic. Happy that I’m getting to “tread the boards” with some of my former classmates from Nazareth College while we are self-isolating from COVID-19.

I have had the pleasure of workshopping this new musical for two years now, in some amazing locations around the city including the Library of Congress, the National Archives, Lorton Workhouse, and the DAR Museum. I am proud to announce that we will be performing the full show at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in November. Tickets are available now.
