Director/Choreographer Chris Gattelli who won a Tony award for his work on Newsies, has asked me to take part in his new show In Your Arms at the Powerhouse Theater in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. July 5 – 13. In Your Arms is a collection of wordless dance vignettes written by playwrights Douglas Carter Beane, Nilo Cruz, Christopher Durang, Carrie Fisher, David Henry Hwang, Rajiv Joseph, Terrence McNally, Marsha Norman, Lynn Nottage, & Alfred Uhry with music by Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime). Produced by New York Stage and Film and Vassar College. Chris has cast me in the story by Rajiv Joseph, a Pulitzer finalist for his play, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.
