Dramaturge for Memphis, the Musical

I'm happy to announce I will be serving as Dramaturge for Memphis, the musical opening at Parkland College in April 2018 directed by Jeff Dare.  It is a challenging historical moment of music, race, cultural crossover and appropriation and I look forward to helping bring depth to this energetic musical.
