LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST
To watch my performance as BOYET and MOTH in the Stella Adler Studio of Acting's NYU Company production of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost, please visit: https://vimeo.com/472239104
Produced for the NYU Company's Outreach Tour, this production was directed by Kern McFadden, and features eight senior student actors (myself included) who auditioned into the Company. We offered several live, virtual performances open to the public through out the Fall 2020 semester, as well as a virtual outreach tour, including Q&As and workshops with NYC public schools, community groups, and jails.
The Royal Social Distancing Company
Founded by Samantha Jancosek and myself in May 2020, The Royal Social Distancing Company began as a group of Stella Adler Studio of Acting trained actors and creators searching for connection, and exploring the world of virtual theatre during this time of isolation. We began doing so through Shakespeare readings broadcast on Zoom. I've been lucky enough to direct Twelfth Night, act in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Julius Caesar, and As You Like It, and both co-direct and act in Macbeth. In the Fall of 2020, we were able to work with members of both the NYU and Adler communities at large on a production of King Lear. In 2021, we have been able to add producing a New Works Festival and a showcase of Shakespeare scenes to our resume (both virtual), in which I directed a new musical (Redbeard, by Cameron Reese and RJ Christian), and a scene from Twelfth Night, respectively. I am proud to write that with each performance, we have been able to donate 50-100% of our proceeds to various nonprofits, including Broadway for All, the Homeless Black Trans Women Fund on GoFundMe, Brave Space Alliance, Broadway for Racial Justice, and the Educational Theatre Foundation's Thespian Relief Fund.
RSDC is currently taking a hiatus while we reacclimate to creating art together in person! When we resume, I will be serving as a Director of Digital Content.

Project In Development
The cast of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting's student production of 1984 has reconvened, along with director John Gould Rubin, to create and produce a new piece inspired by the themes in 1984! We are currently working on devising, applying for grants, and exploring options for future workshops. We are a true ensemble, and I am excited to be involved with this piece as a devising artist, actor, producer, and one-woman-logistics-committee. I can't wait to share more about this project in the future!
