At the beginning of January, 2014, I was asked to participate in an informal reading of the newest draft of the new musical Higher Education. I have been apart of the cast for Higher Education since it’s inception in the summer of 2012 (the first time the public got to hear this piece) in a staged reading at the Margaret A. Webb Theatre in Santa Ana, California. In the summer of 2013, the writers of the piece mounted the first production of the musical (at the same theatre). The show transformed a lot over the course of the year and changed even more when members of the cast and I read the newest version of the script a view weeks ago. This show has so much potential and a powerful message. I look forward to see where it will go from here and I hope the show will have a lot of success. Only time will tell, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this one.
Here is the trailer for the first ever performance of Higher Education, mounted summer 2013.
