Straight Faced Lies garners SIX nominations from Planet Connections - for outstanding production, outstanding playwright, ( Mark J. Williams), outstanding director, (me), and acting nods to Hannah Wolfe, Dan Hilt and Thom Christensen. Congratulations! Award ceremony on 8/4/13. So excited and proud to have been part of this production this year.
For the third year in a row I'm participating in the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity here in NYC. This year I'm directing the world premiere of Mark Jason William's STRAIGHT FACED LIES. We opened Sunday night to positive feedback from the audience and the audience last night seemed to laugh non-stop (which made me happy!) Sometime today we should see a review from Martin Denton at NYTheatre.com - will post it when it's up! It's been fun to work on this - the cast is very talented, the script is a delight -- and this year I don't have the added responsibility of being the producer as well as the director, which certainly simplifies things! Hope you can make it out to see one of the last four shows - I know there are seats left to our show today 4:00 p.m. at the Robert Moss Theater, 440 Lafayette St, NYC - see you there? https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/921739
