Love, Loss, and What I Wore
         by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron


Drama Desk Award for Best Unique Theatrical Experience, Broadway World Audience Favorite


A smash hit with audiences and critics alike,the play broke all existing box office records Off-Broadway and was repeatedly extended due to audience demand, for 3 years. 

Our opening cast featured Tyne Daly, Rosie O'Donnell, Samantha Bee, Katie Finneran, Natasha Lyonne.  We rotated casts every month, and I had the joy of directing over 150 of our most celebrated comediennes in it, for New York.


The show has played all over the world, and was released to stock and amateur rights last year. 


Produced by Daryl Roth at the Westside Theater, New York.

Ayelet, A young Israeli woman, reluctantly travels to America with her grandmother.  Fate and hilarious circumstances conspire to bring Ayelet, who has little command of English, together with a young American man with little command of romance. 


Is their love an accident? 

Or destiny, generations in the making?


Admit One
 by Wendy Yondorf


Many a parent succumbs to hysteria when it comes to getting their children into the best schools.  Howard Everett is no exception. 

But he has a leg up as one of the wealthiest donors to the elite Giddings Universiy, a hallowed gateway that assures access to the American Dream. 

What he does not anticipate is that he is about to meet the admissions officer from hell with her own rules and agenda.  With his child's entire future at stake, just how far will a father go to get him in?

Premiered at NJ Rep, Feb.-March, 2014


Stay tuned for breaking news on casting, as Admit One heads to Broadway!

This was a little ditty I cooked up for the Indianapolis Symphony, who wanted to shake up their music programming with theatrical presentations.  Artist

Andre Miripolsky wailed on this, painting an entire 40' mural in the choir loft above the orchestra in the time it took them to play Ravel's Mother Goose: 28 minutes!
