“The Other Room” written with Mark Campbell opens October 4th!
The brainchild of Paulette Haupt, I was commissioned along with brilliant librettist Mark Campbell to create a short sung-through piece for one woman. Ethan Heard directs and Ian Axness music directs Phoebe Strole in this year’s Inner Voices at the Barrow Group Theatre.
THE OTHER ROOM is a moving and often humorous musical work celebrating the power of friendship and political engagement during the early years of the AIDS crisis in New York. Lena reflects on her profound love for her friend Steve after he becomes seriously ill.
Our piece shares the evening with another short piece by Kirsten Childs and Charlayne Woodard.
