Theatre Happens In Brooklyn Too!

Two Brooklyn Reading Series to check out!

It seems that a lot of the world, even people who live in the city, think Manhattan is the only place where theatre happens. You have an event in Brooklyn and people can't fathom the trek. "I'm not gonna go all the way to Brooklyn!" they say as if Brooklyn is located in a mysterious wardrobe that leads to an alternate land. But it's a train ride away depending where you live. And there are people who come to Manhattan from Connecticut or Long Island every day. Brooklyn should be a breeze!

I want to talk about two reading series in Brooklyn. The first is called Playwrights at the Grand. Every second Thursday of the month they devote to presenting readings of new plays. I've been involved as a writer three times and they are always packed! Clarke and Chad are two Pace boys who created a community that showcases their fellow Pace alumni as actors while they have our works read and we get feedback.

Just this Thursday they had their two-year anniversary party. There was cake, cupcakes, plays that past playwrights like myself wrote specifically for this event, a drinking game, and a raffle. It's an environment of love and fun!

The next reading series I want to mention is Casa de Beverley's One Acts and Snacks. You get snacks while listening to actors read works of playwrights. They are about to kick off their third season, which is dedicated to all female playwrights. OAS takes place every third Saturday (minus December, January and the summer) of each month. Each time you come you will hear three short plays, a talkback, and have awesome mingling time. I came on board early last year as an actor. This season I come on board as one of the co-producers. OAS also has Casa Cares in which they donate half their proceedings to a different charity each month. Opening night is September 17 at 6:30pm!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
