Happy closing to @thegifttheatre #COSMOLOGIES by ensemble member #DavidRabe. You are all next level new play wizards of the first order. What a ride. Special shout out to Gift Production Manager and Cosmologies Stage Manager, Sarah Luse (pictured here, post-preview, working on the next day’s call) whom I trust with every Gift, always.

LONG SAPPY POST ALERT
today was WILD i woke up to a call from the stage manager for the show i’m understudying telling me i needed to go on for the lead today for a two show day. the most lines i’ve EVER had to memorize. i pulled it off, much in part to the rest of the incredible cast and stage management team. had a blast getting to play and tell this story. THEN i came home to a beautiful bouquet from my beautiful boyfriend who’s out of town on a gig. life is chaotic and wild and unpredictable. embrace the chaos and enjoy the ride. feeling lucky and loved and sleepy :)

The man, the myth, the legend. Technical Director, David Preis.

One week ago today we experienced some serious flooding that completely shut down our theatre. But thanks to Dave’s relentless determination and many long days, COSMOLOGIES is back OPEN (and in record time)! We hope you’ll join us in the audience this week to support/celebrate Dave’s efforts for which we are so immensely grateful.
.
.
We love you Dave 😎🤗
