Love (Dec. 2020)
Of course, due to COVID-19, Swing!, Frankenstein, and The Women were indefinitely suspended. So much love and support to my friends from them and all shows. Particular thoughts to those who had to leave NYC, that they'd had the resourcefulness and courage to get themselves to in the first place. So much gratitude to our community, (shout out: Tamra Pica, Write Act Rep!) for all the virtual care. I'm in upstate NY with my partner (now of 15 years!), who's a visiting professor (oof, support all teachers!!) at our own alma mater, Vassar College. I'm fulfilling my gradeschool fantasy of working as a veterinary assistant and doing a lot of writing! (And oy, the audio self-recording—dear tech friends, I hope I gave you all the respect and appreciation you deserve!!) I'm very lucky that our lives happened to be in a good moment to help us be safe and get through the pandemic. I look forward to much more live theater (AND HUGS) when we can. My deepest love to all of you, always.
