LA Weekly shoutout!

I got a shoutout in LA Weekly's review of Deicide: A Sorta Muscial! Super exciting..

DEICIDE: A SORTA MUSICAL If you've ever yearned for a feel-good musical about Holy Wars and the end of civilization, this is it. Sorta. Writers Michael Ciriaco (book) and Brandon Baruch (book, music and lyrics) have a shamelessly good time bashing the big business of God and humanity's desperate need for deities, in whatever shape or form, as does the appealing cast of their goofball, scrappily ambitious -- albeit overlong -- musical romp. Like any good religious tale, it's filled with sex, violence and cool costumes (Laura Wong). Baruch directs with attention to cardboard-cutout detail (Gabriel Flores' design), and standout performances keep us laughing, even as the premise is stretched thinner and sillier. Murky Productions at the Paul G. Gleason Theatre, 6520 Hollywood Blvd., L.A. Tues.-Wed., June 22-23, 9 p.m.; Fri., June 25, 8:30 p.m.; Sat., June 26, 5 p.m. (866) 811-4111.

End of the school year!

Just finished my last final of the year! The year 2 of my MFA is over.. it went so fast!

Things are still going at breakneck pace, as work on Deicide: A Sorta Musical started going in full swing this week. We open in a week and a half, so this has really been an exercise in having to work quickly! It's a really funny show though, and there have been a lot of fun and unique costume challenges in it. Come on out and see the show if you're in the area! It's a part of the first ever Hollywood Fringe Festival, and runs the last two weekends in June.

I haven't updated in a while, so here's something from one of my projects in design class this quarter! Marcelle from Hotel Paradiso, in the infamous mauve dress..
