New works, like The Jester, are my passion. It’s always fun to produce the classics, but it’s important to remember that the classics were once new works too.
The world was introduced to the Bechdel Test in 1985. It was initially created as a way to measure films by three criteria. In 2021, I’m adapting it and applying it to another art form.
I didn’t get a chance to write a lot of script reviews this month. I was able to start reading some musical books that have started gathering dust on my bookshelf though. Here we go!
It might seem a little bit outdated, but I want to take a minute to recognize some scripts that I read for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival that really stood out to me.

I hope you enjoyed the Performance of Sports series. It’s something that I’ve been thinking about for a while and I really enjoyed writing it.
Representation matters. Full stop.
