This June, I will be performing for ten performances of Monique Witt's Split/Screen at the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival in Los Angeles, California! The music that I will be performing will be all my own original compositions and arrangements, and I am extremely excited to be premiering this work at such a great festival, and for such a beautiful play. The play is about a young man named Kit who suffers a debilitating accident in Jaipur, and focuses on the people he interacts with in the ER after his legs have been paralyzed. It is amazingly well-written, and I am very much looking forward to being part of the production.
For more information, you can visit the Hollywood Fringe Festival's website, or you can visit the play's website at http://www.splitscreentheplay.com/. To see the dates and time of the performances and to order tickets, click here.
