BWW Interview: Jeff Deglow of INTERRUPTING VANESSA at ChildsplayBWW Interview: Jeff Deglow of INTERRUPTING VANESSA at Childsplay

It is beautifully paced and allows for audiences of different ages to enjoy it. The message of holding on, and moving on, is gentle and very organic in its writing. Adults experience a very different play than the children do. It is such a joy to be part of telling this story. (more...)

Filled with scathing one-liners and backstabbing twists, SEMINAR examines gender politics, artistic merit, and modern urban sociology through a self-aware, comic lens.
