Review for Gotham Stage Company Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an actor in NYC, there are so many times when you find yourself not working, not creating and that doesn't generate productivity. While co-founding Gotham Stage Company, my inspiration was renewed and I was able to work with so many people that fed this. Sometimes all it takes is being a theater to make you feel that you are part of the artistic community here in New York. In such a busy city, it's easy to forget this sometimes. Gotham gave me a chance to remember what it was I came here to do. Whether it was help paint scenery, find props or sew costumes, my hands were in the work. I had the opportunity to take over a role during our first production, Sake with the Haiku Geisha, at the end of the run. I had only planned on producing our first show since that was a new experience for me but it ended up being a great experience. Another playwright saw me during that last week and I did a new show of hers Off-Broadway the following fall. It's very easy to be in NYC and dream of being an artist but Gotham gave me the opportunity to actually be one which I consider immeasurable.

Role:  Board Member & Co-founded the company. I helped paint sets, run sound, doing laundry, getting props-anything that needed to get done to mount and maintain the productions.
