I kind of pride myself on doing things that scare me. My personal motto is that brilliance lies in the moment that might not work. It’s a quote from George C Wolfe that means basically if you’re just repeating what you already know how to do, you have given up on brilliance. Our society will support you in standardizing your art. But is Art that can be replicated like a Big mac or a Mocha latte really art? As much as I thought I wa...

Anath Garber is a friend and colleague whose expertise in psychotherapy and particularly the technique of psychodrama is very intriguing to me because I believe live theater can be religion and therapy and therapy as drama and healing may be the best invention since the wheel.

Part2: I once sat on a panel of all White men and me in an audience of cultural diverse people who were there to share their experience with the powers of the patriarch about the lack of opportunities they had to work. Sadly. the male panelists were more interested in talking about what they had done to support diversity rather than listening to here what still needed to be done to improve diversity. One of them, argued that it sho...

Truth is often polarizing join me in welcoming Robert...

Part 2: I envy Katori Hall. She gets to call a spade a spade without getting branded an angry black woman or as difficult which is what I always hear about myself from people who don’t know me at all. She is represented on Broadway with Tina the Musical, at The Signature Theater with The Hotwing Kings and on TV with Pussy Valley. She gets to create in every venue imaginable from Broadway to West End to TV/Film. Maybe it’s because s...
