NYC. Busy Halloween weekend. Zipped over to Mornings at 7, produced by Julian Schlossberg, starring Tony Roberts (among many other AMAZING veterans). Also attended an invited dress for Will Eno's Gnit, with a wonderful crew of 'downtown' folks. Also skipped over to a *little* Halloween parade.
If you are in NYC, make sure to get out and support live theater! Some of the best shows around are closing early.
NYC+. My good friend and colleague Lanie Zipoy made a movie. Written by Chisa Hutchinson. It stars Jason Biggs. Check it out.
The Subject Movie has its US premiere THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22nd!
They are in select theaters across the country, as well as on-demand. You can see it in NYC for one-week only.
THE SUBJECT follows a successful white documentary filmmaker dealing with the fallout from his previous film which caught the murder of a Black teen on tape. Now, someone films his every move, threatening his idyllic life. Stars Jason Biggs, Aunjanue Ellis, Anabelle Acosta, Carra Patterson, Nile Bullock & Caleb Eberhardt. Directed by Lanie Zipoy. Screenplay by Chisa Hutchinson. Winner of more than 30 Awards on the film festival circuit.
You can also check out an interview I did with Lanie and star Nile Bullock when the film was on the fest circuit last year.
NYC. Due to non-Covid related circumstances, I am briefly stinting as the ghost of Marie Antoinette (opposite Jody Christopherson's Marie Tussaud), live from the booth for downtown theater - Tussaud/Antoinette @ IRT. Happy to be doing *some* mini live performing after the dire straits of the past 20 months. This has been a desperately difficult time for anyone who does live performance on the regular... Crawling out feels simultaneously crushingly exhausting and wildly inspiring. You can read a review of the show here and here. ❤️..
