Starring in “War” at Lincoln Center Theatre

Hi all! I’m happy to announce that I’ve been cast in the Branden Jacobs-Jenkins production of “War” at the Lincoln Center Theatre, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz. Tickets are ON SALE NOW.

Synopsis

Tensions escalate between Tate and Joanne after their mother has a stroke. As they attack each other in their mother’s hospital room, they are ambushed by two strangers who make a shocking claim about their grandfather during WWII.  With bold theatricality and disarming humor, WAR follows a fractured family as its members navigate the landmines of the past and try to broker peace with each other – and themselves – in the present.

Looking forward to see you there!

Each has a specific toolbox that can support a woman during her labor and birth.

This caused me to do some research because I just thought coconuts grew on Palms. Please excuse my ignorance; there are not many palm trees in New York City. I learned that there are about 12 different commonly consumed palm fruits.
