All Aunt Hagar's Children by Edward P. Jones
Performing Literature word for word
This was a beautiful and challenging experience. I loved every minute of it. I played 8 characters including a very memorable Mynah Bird. Word for Word combines my love for literature and my love for acting.
We also took this show to France! We toured Nancy, Angers, and Paris. I love the French and the audiences wholeheartedly took this ride with us (in English) and were thoroughly moved. Until next time Au revoir mon ami.
