The Obie Award-winning composer has collaborated on this latest work with her apprentice of six years, Rebecca Keren (Book & Lyrics) and off-Broadway’s rising star, Daniella Rabbani (Book). Leah Bonvissuto (Ars Nova, Lincoln Center Director’s Lab, NYU Graduate) will direct the performance and Kris Kukul (Williamstown Theater Festival, Atlantic Theater Company, Joe’s Pub) will music direct.
