I've been trying to put together a little mailing list, so that people who are interested can stay updated on upcoming projects and events that I have going on. (maybe I flatter myself that there are more of you out there than my family)
Anyway, if there ARE any of you out there who'd like to be on a "Jessie Bear Mailing List" (for VERY infrequent emails) just enter your information into the "contact" section of this website and write "Mailing List" in the comments section. Horray!
so psyched to have this site (sight?) to share the latest about my theatrical life with the world!
my strategy for graduating from grad school (which i recently-good jesus-did) was to jump in to as many different projects as I could, so as to distract myself from the looming intensity of "possibility" (um...endless terror) that we all face when leaving the comforting bosom of an educational institution.
so much is cooking, and i can't wait to share it with you all!
for a quick taste:
--I just finished a fabulous week workshopping a new piece at New York Theatre Workshop with the wonderful director Erin Mee. I won't say too much now, but it's an incredible, immersive, interactive play where audience will be able to come partake in the weird, delicious experience of a "cubist party". look for more info soon, and performances in 2014!
--I am working with a brand-new theater company, mumuration theater, to develop a play I wrote for some incredible collaborators (and dear friends) in Philadelphia. It will feature the fabulous Nell Bang-Jensen, Isa St. Clair, and Brian Ratcliffe. The title is still bouncing around, so i can't "name it" here yet, but we're aiming for a run in November 2013.
