June 2013: Speaking of multi-cultural, in June I did the most remarkable site-specific production of Elmer Rice's play STREET SCENE on an actual STREET in Brooklyn, 5th Street in Park Slope to be exact. A multi-racial, multi-ethnic cast of 35 took over the whole block and two brownstones to present this marvelous production twice on a Saturday, and about 500 hundred people filled the block for EACH performance, sitting on folding chairs and stoops, and attentively witnessing (and participating) in this mind-blowing event, which the NY Times featured. I am proud to have worked with this innovative company BRAVE NEW WORLD, and our visionary director, Claire Beckman.  It was an experience I am not likely to forget.

Photographer Susan Rosenberg Jones did a photo essay on husband Paul Hamilton & me, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Many beautiful and fascinating photos resulted, which will be featured at various art shows around the country, and possibly in an upcoming book. Don't be surprised if you see us somewhere!
