I'm directing several shows for Cardinal Stage this year, and actively looking for projects for Summer 2020.

Cardinal Stage, Winter 2019
I'm happy to be reuniting with my team from last year's hit production of Beauty and the Beast, for this year's Bloomington premiere of Newsies. It's going to be a jolt of energy for the holidays! Tickets and more information here.

Cardinal Stage, Spring 2019
I have been wanting to direct this play since I first read it and can't wait to share it with our Cardinal audience. This is a fascinating piece about the brilliant woman considered to be the first computer programmer. Tickets and more information here.

I'm working with this fantastic team on developing this exciting rock musical about the first women's labor movement. 11th Hour Theatre Company produced a concert reading in Winter 2016 and was featured in Philly Magazine. The show was recently produced in Japan (in Japanese) and is looking for a home for its American Premiere.

Emily's show features a cast of 4 women and a story that centers on power, friendship and responsibility. It's got a graphic novel flavor, with a healthy does of environmentalist allegory mixed in. It makes you laugh and then punches you in the gut. We workshopped this new musical at Indiana University in Summer 2019 and are currently exploring next steps.
