Countdown to Debut of “In Her Words”

This weekend has been a whirlwind as me and my cast prepare for the debut of my new theatrical piece “In Her Words”. I can’t truly call this a play but, rather, a theatrical and musical tribute that gives you background information about each artist highlighted, with actual monologue/dialogue culled from the research I did on each woman this past Fall. It’s entertaining, it’s educational and it’s FREE for you to check out if you are in the Washington DC area. All this week, I am going to be posting information about the show, along with interviews and the like I’ve been doing with local blogs and sites about the show.
