SEXY LAUNDRY at Millbrook Playhouse

Love my time at Millbrook Playhouse—this year was my 4th show there! Directing SEXY LAUNDRY was a true pleasure; my first two hander and my first show at Millbrook where no one dies! (Previously I had done WAIT UNTIL DARK in 2017, STEEL MAGNOLIAS in 2016, and DIAL ‘M’ FOR MURDER in 2015.)

Reuniting with Michael Maloney and Elizabeth Simmons (both of whom have worked at Judson Theatre Company) for this charming two-hander was a wonderful working vacation, just the right amount of time to be out of the city and get back to the basics of what made me love theatre in the first place. Made many new friends and got to see several longtime pals who were working on other shows there.

Reviews were solid too:

“And finally, to director Morgan Sills: kudos for taking a comedy about two characters in a motel room and eliciting such multi-layered performances.”

Millbrook audiences have called it “the best production ever” in the cabaret space, and many of the performances were sold out. So a very happy time all around, and a most grateful director.

Judson Theatre Company 2019 - Season Eight!

Proud to announce Judson Theatre Company’s Eighth Season! Our 2019 shows are the hilarious comedy SOUVENIR by Stephen Temperley and the classic Agatha Christie thriller WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION.

SOUVENIR, a fantasia on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, plays Thursday, May 9 - Sunday, May 12 at the Hannah Center Theatre. WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION plays Thursday, November 21-Sunday, November 24 at Bradshaw Performing Arts Center (formerly Owens Auditorium).

Most new theatre companies fail in their first 3-5 years. Here we are in our eighth, and though there’s still much work to be done, in many ways we’re thriving—and that’s thanks to everyone who is part of the JTC family. Join us for Season 8! Tickets on sale at JudsonTheatre.com.


Directing 2019

In addition to producing two shows at Judson Theatre Company (TBA soon!) as of now I’ll be directing two productions in 2019. First up is the charming comic two-hander SEXY LAUNDRY in June at Millbrook Playhouse—it’ll be my 4th show there and it’s such an honor to be asked back.

Then in Sept-Oct, it’s my beloved FOREVER PLAID!!! It’ll be my 16th production of the show, 3rd time directing it. It’s at ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival in VT. Looking forward to getting my Plaid on again, it’s been a while.

I enjoy directing so very much, but I have some strict rules about what shows I’ll take on—these two are each going to have their particular joys.
