Hello 2018

The first week of this year has certainly been dramatic. Here in New York City we’ve been in the deep freeze and had the fun of a highly theatrical blizzard with all the trimmings……….so this blog had to wait till things thawed out and warmed up!But……..the year is off to a good start. I am embarking on a project headed by Jake Lipman, artistic director of Tongue In Cheek Theatre Company.
