Three Months with Pook
In 2014 I met Jack Feldstein at a reading of his play with the music by Melanie, Three Months with Pook. Afterwards, I spoke to him about the “visions” I was having during the reading. He simply said, “Well Lauren, you must direct it then!” So I did. Here are some highlights:
Directed + produced the world premiere as part of the 2014 HOT! Festival - The Celebration of Queer Culture at Dixon Place then again on the Dixon Place main stage in February 2015.
Reinterpreted Melanie’s songs to highlight the fluidity in sexuality and falling in love.
Directed a creative team including a music director and technical director.
Stage, prop and costume design to work within the special constraints of the Lounge during the festival and adapting the design for the larger main stage during the February performance.
Actor management that focused on text-analysis, partner work and improvisation.
