Cultivar la mente y el alma a través del arte. Eso me parece exquisito, divino💕.
“Buscaba una obra para bailar, cantar y celebrar el amor...y que el derecho al amor de pareja - y su reconocimiento social - va más allá de los géneros. Mucho ruido por nada nos permitía retratar desde el humor, un mundo patriarcal y hablar sobre la injerencia de la comunidad en la plena realización del amor de pareja. La acción se desarrolla en una pequeña y conservadora comunidad Siciliana, de una mentalidad muy similar a la de nuestra absurda sociedad peruana de hoy”.

Alright, just gonna get a lil' sentimental here. When @knematt and I landed on Much Ado About Nothing to be the production that pioneers our theatre company, my first instinct came in waves of excitement to direct a play that I have loved so dearly for so long. My second response, however, was not quite as positive, and all of a sudden the excitement I felt became muddled with a sense of fear. After all, this would be my first time directing a cast so huge (there are 16 actors!), my first time directing in a traditional black box (#thehivenyc ), and my first time directing a work of heightened text. The reality is, after five weeks of rehearsal and months on end of pre- production, there are still things that scare me about presenting a show this huge. With that being said, for every fear I have, there are at least 10 things that fill me with joy and instill a deep sense of pride to put up this production of Much Ado. To start, I have the best producers in the world with @anabells365 and @sittingshotgunco. My stage manager @abbyrb1026 and the design team alongside her are some of the finest creative minds in NYC. And then.... then: there is the company of actors you see on this poster. And wow. Wow, wow, wow. If you see the show, and I hope you do, you are in for a treat to see the work they are doing. This ensemble of actors has been so generous, so kind, and day in/ day out bring the best that they have to offer into the room. I love each and every one of them with all of my heart, and am so proud of the work they have accomplished. Directing Much Ado has been a tremendous challenge, but a challenge that has not only made me feel very happy, but lucky to do what I do. It would mean the world to me if you would come out and see it next weekend at The Hive in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The ticket link can be found in my bio ❤️
Love this shot taken by @cesare_dg I’m having an absolute blast being back on this awesome stage! @the_globe we’ve got two shows today and you can still get tickets for the evening show at 6pm or on Tuesday at 7pm!! Don’t miss this great production that’s been seen by over 20,000 people already!! #BuildingEveryday
The theatre wing has largely gone SCRIPTLESS! Just before spring break, a major portion of our cast was able to pull through and memorize their lines and are able to perform with minimal cueing. Congratulations on your huge leap in progress, keep up the good work!
Every opportunity I get, I just wanna do the best I can! And when given that opportunity I couldn’t be happier! 4 shows to go!! Sad to finish this one! ❤️😩 Thank you @mikigjo and the amazing team @the_globe and the amazing cast I’m working with! X #BuildingEveryday
Albee’s At Home at the Zoo. Impressive production - but I arrived late, had a little nap, got the gist though. See my seat in the front tow....
Neo Twomblian set - squiggles... never really got him. At least Pollock had more color... Naybe the same thing with Albee. Again, very good production- excellent acting, but is he really THAT meaningful. I sort of get it, but maybe it’s not really worth the effort.
Much Ado About Nothing opens tonight! The students have put in a lot of hard work & I’m proud of them for it. Time to kick Shakespeare back to the 80s!
I took around 1400 photos last night, which I’ll get around to editing eventually, but here’s the first batch!
