This week’s #AboutLastNight is all about “Not In This Room,” the production I’m working in as a part of the Fire This Time Festival Festival downtown. What a fantastic opening weekend, three shows down with only two more to go, this experience has been a great one. Not only do I get to work with Daaimah Mubashshir again (read here about our last collaboration) but I’ve made new connections with my fellow actors.
On top of opening a show, my good friend Andrew and his classmate Andrea, made their first trip down from Syracuse on Friday for a ceramics conference. 2015 has officially begun now that I have had a taste of home 🙂
Hope you enjoy the photos, and if you’re in the New York area head over to horsetrade.info to buy your ticket to the Fire This Time Festival’s 10-minute Play Festival.

How does the saying go? “Work hard, Play hard.” Let me tell you that those never rang more true than this past weekend haha. With each new performance the Ivanov cast found new rhythms and cadences for their characters and for the play itself, so of course at each night’s conclusion we felt we deserved a pat on the back for “A Job Well Done.” Celebrating Jason’s birthday on opening night at Mel’s Burger, grabbing lunch at Deluxe and dancing at my apartment on Saturday, and saying our goodbyes over drinks and Mexican food at Amigos. We soaked up as much time together that would be allowed between eating, sleeping and performing lol. Below are even MORE pics from what we did after the lights faded and the audience had gone home.
