In Development

Co-Conceiver & Director, The Theatrical Culinary Project – an immersive play and dining experience featuring co-host of The Chew & Top Chef finalist, Carla Hall, in collaboration with award-winning playwrights Jeff Augustin, Martyna Majok, Daniel Pearle and Julian Sheppard. Set in a restaurant, the lines of reality and fiction are blurred as the audience dines on a four-course meal while submerged in a multi-layered play. Sasha Eden (co-founder, WET Productions) is Co-Conceiver & Creative Producer. In development since 2015. www.theatricalculinaryproject.com Upcoming New York workshop: August 2017.

Director, Costs of Living, Words & Music by Timothy Huang. Based on a true story, Costs of Living chronicles the lives of two immigrant cab drivers who come to New York for the American dream. Sharing a taxi and a bed to make ends meet, their lives diverge, ending in tragedy.

Director, Teeth, Music by Anna K. Jacobs, Words by Michael R. Jackson, Book by Anna K. Jacobs & Michael R. Jackson. Adapted from the 2007 Sundance Award-winning indie horror film by Mitchell Lichtenstein, Teeth tells the story of Dawn O'Keefe, an evangelical Christian teen who discovers that she has teeth in her vagina. When forces conspire to destroy her, Dawn must decide which part of herself she will save and which she will sacrifice. Upcoming reading produced by The Sundance Theatre Institute: June 2017.

Director, Untitled Willard Suitcases musical. Music & Lyrics by Julianne Wick Davis. A song cycle based on photographer Jon Crispin's photos of the nearly 400 suitcases, belonging to inmates, discovered in an abandoned attic of the Willard Psychiatric Center when it closed in 1995. Upcoming New York workshop: May 2017.

Director, Up and Away, Music by Kristin Bair, Book & Lyrics by Kevin Hammonds. Superman meets The 39 Steps in this epic, high-octane, comedic tour-de-force about two brothers whose lives are turned upside-down when one of them attains super-human powers. Set in a simpler time before super heroes existed, he must learn what to do with his new gifts as he struggles with "Goodness" vs. "Greatness".

Director, Echo, Music & Lyrics by Anna K. Jacobs. Three women seek to become something more than a reflection in this chamber piece that weaves a trilogy of contemporary tales around a re-imagining of the timeless and ever-perpetuating myth of Echo and Narcissus.
