Terrific time at the table read for "Bob's Gang" an original screenplay written by David Henry Hwang (M Butterfly) and director Jonathan Caovette (Tarnation). A very promsing and at times very moving and inspirational script.
I'm very excited and proud that my play "In Da Boogie Down" has just been nominated for the 2012 Metlife Foundation "Nuestra Voces" playwrighting award. It's been a long development journey but the hard work that my director and I have put into the play is starting to pay off.
