First Season Announcement
Teaser promo for the musical MURDER BALLAD
Made in 72 hours and premiering October 13, 2017 at the Weinberg in Frederick, MD, PLAYDATE is a funny and touching look at a playdate gone wrong.
To make an ad with four days notice and no budget for a startup with a pitch opportunity, I used what I had at hand. My little actresses were even somewhat cooperative.
Because we had access to a cool location

MYTHS & HYMNS is a song cycle by Adam Guettel for which I wrote and directed a narrative, presented by Prospect Theatre in NYC. A description of that project is coming, but in the meantime, please enjoy this video about the process.
The New York Times Review: “Ms. Lucas’s poetic staging…provides a satisfying frame for them without twisting itself in any narrative knots…”
The New York Times Profile: “…this revamp has the potential to convince theaters everywhere that “Myths and Hymns” is viable as a stage property.”
