"At my core, I am deeply empathetic and am innately motivated to make the world a better, more inclusive place. For me, I believe that this change begins with communicating through story...
I am most excited by ensemble-focused works that push the envelope in this way, inspiring the audience to consider the lived experiences of others who may look or live differently than they do. In working to expand the theatre’s collective voice, I hope to help change the narrative of underrepresentation in the industry."
"The director, Kaylila Pasha... did a wonderful job blocking and creating this piece. Putting on a production in such a challenging space... is no easy feat, but this duo brought the story to life with creative choreography and associated character dynamics...
The cast was incredibly effective in creating chemistry in every scene, and the artistic integrity of both the production staff and ensemble was very cohesive throughout."
