Alex Gray first switched-up her true-life tale in our Urban Dwellers show. Later, she took part in an impromptu on-the-spot story swap with our own Mike Dressel. Click here to give a listen.

Coming up on March 21st – ONE NIGHT ONLY performance at Dixon Place – is Alex’s original piece Photo Play about personal snapshots: how they connect us, shape our identities, and dictate the stories and memories that remain after we’re gone. Alex workshopped portions of the script our NYTI alumnae sessions, which she stated were –

“Invaluable in helping me clarify the characters and hone the overall intention of the piece. As rehearsals roll on, I’ve been thinking a lot about those early sessions, and how having the opportunity to hear the text read aloud and (gently) teased apart with helpful questions was a crucial part of the development process. I am so grateful to have had the attention and input of NYTI’s talented crew.”

Did we mention Photo Play is one night only? Click here for more info OR here to buy tickets.

With original music by Ben & Kris Stoker, and a cast that includes Coco Conroy, Ivanna Cullinan*, Jane Kahler*, Renita Lewis, and Margaret O’Sullivan. Original portraiture by Steve Baird.

We are so proud of Alex and excited to see how what we read in those early sessions comes to life on stage. Hope you can join us on March 21st!

Don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE for our next show! No, YOU Tell It! “Mayday” at The Astoria Bookshop on May 10th.
