Meantime I am back in rehearsal for my mystery thriller "A Wound in Time", a selection in the NY Summerfest Theatre Festival which goes up Oct. 4, 5, and 7 at Hudson Guild Theatre. The resumption to film the screenplay adaptation is on hold until scheduling issues are resolved. THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!
Look for my new cable TV talk show "Confessions of the Creative Soul" on Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN), where creative guests share their journey through the process, which is often a very lonely road... Pilot has already been taped. Air date tba. Series to follow later in the year.
Our immersive production of my Swing Era drama "Silk Stockings and a Bible" went up July 16th at Ginny's Supper Club with a quartet of veteran musicians Les Kurtz, Dave Colding, Sir Earl Grice, and Carol Sudhalter! It was a success with a full house of responsive and attentive audience members. It went very well, considering this was our first time doing it with interaction with the audience since its initial run March 2017 at IATI Theatre. It can only get better. Looking forward to doing a regular tour of local jazz venues in the future.
Have to wrap "A Wound in Time" as I've been contacted by two film distributors who have been awaiting a screener for consideration for international distribution. As soon as I save enough to complete production, which can be done over two to three weekends, we'll be back on set! Very excited for what's ahead for 2018!
Looking forward to restaging my plays as "immersive" experiences with budgets to enhance the overall production quality...
Thanks so much to my sister Sheila for taping all three plays of "Women You Thought You Knew". Its been a while since I've updated this website and I have just begun posted the 31 clips that I edited from the trilogy... Stay tuned and check ofter for updates.

Though there has yet to be a "true" budget WETBG Productions still manages to push forward in the belief
that "lack of money should never keep a good story from being told or social issues from being addressed".
-So many projects on the horizon for 2017. What wasn't accomplished in 2016 will be attempted in the new year ahead.
But as always I push forward without a budget to share good and socially conscious stories. And of course none of it would be
possible without a cast and crew who believe in the work; because it is always about the "work". My motto "Money should never
keep a good story from going untold". The entire trilogy "Women You Thought You Knew" goes up at IATI Theatre for a week
long run of 12 performances March 20-26th. Tickets go on sale in February. Thank You Puffin Foundation for making this possible!
-FINALLY rehearsals for the full production and run of the entire trilogy "Women You Though You Knew" begin February 10th.
There will be some old faces and some new. Luckily, the theatre was acquired and paid for before my health issue so "the
show must go on"! Again, Thank You Puffin Foundation!!!
