The show must go on...

I am currently casting for my play: “Plastic People in Waiting” a dark comedy set to be staged at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre Winterfest. This is a great opportunity to collaborate with an ensemble cast of colorful characters on a timely story with a twist.


Dr Cohen's office is overbooked. His secretary is dead. And Betty, the temp, is left to pick up the pieces. Meanwhile an aging star, a precocious schoolgirl, a pageant mom and a peculiar therapist, all vie for a last nip and tuck with the Dr. before he jets off to Brazil. While they wait, tension builds, personalities clash and secrets are revealed, ensuring that no one leaves this Dr.’s visit unchanged.

Rehearsals begin mid-end of January.
