WATER had a successful opening

Jody Christopherson of New York Theatre Review (actress/writer/producer extraordinaire in her own right) interviewed me and the director of WATER, Gretchen Van Lente. Can read the interview below:

I could not have been more pleased with the opening of WATER last night. It was a beautiful evening. Actors Penny Middleton, Glenn Quentin George and Ashley Brockington, as well as drummer Andy Weintraub, gave gorgeous and touching performances. “Drink today, my little child, yesterday, tomorrow..” (Sigh…so pretty…) The kids and adults who came seemed to enjoy it and we raised nearly $100 from donations to give to Charity: Water. Also, I got pleasantly drunk when we went out for Ethiopian food after the show.
