    A funny unexpectedly romantic piece with tight dialogue and timing. Sweet, gory and giggly by turns. A fun little ride!
  • Clarissa Buys The Flowers Herself

    A marvelously updated version of the original story, given particularly the pandemic parallels of 1918 and our current time, as well as a wonderful, contemporary "face-lift" in terms of other things that may've not been talked about/revealed in the polite society of Woolf's time still being threatened today. Bravo!
  • An Incomplete List of All the Things I'm Going to Miss When the World is No Longer:

    Took a role (Trust) with some hesitation, sight unseen. WELL. Read through the piece at first rehearsal. Suffice it to say, SO GLAD I accepted! The script is much stronger than your "typical musical", with fully-fleshed, multidimensional characters, and considering the subject matter, manages to be both uplifting and incredibly sad. If we do our jobs correctly, we're going to have to scrape the audience out of their seats at the end. Added bonus: time/juxtaposition/formatting of scenes in his script, is helping me w/issues in a play I'm writing. WELL DONE, MR GREEN, BRAVO!
  • The Twelfth Story

    I had the privilege of playing Athena in a developmental reading in 2014, and absolutely fell in love with the character and the world of the piece, which contains several stories to tell a larger story about how storytelling saved the world. It is interesting, compassionate, inventive and thoroughly engaging, would be an amazing addition to any season, and would be wonderfully suited to adapting as an online piece (this review is being written in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic). Highly recommend!

    Saw a reading at Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Alaska, in fact, stumbled into the room unintentionally (whoops) before it began. By the time I realized it was not the piece I had been interested in, the doors had closed, & there was no escape...worse yet, I saw 10 old white guys (NOT my demographic or interest) in front of music stands. However, I was EXTREMELY pleasantly surprised - this is a gorgeous, interesting & thought-provoking play I ended up pleased and gratified to have experienced!

    Saw a reading of this play at The Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Alaska - Leora is skilled at weaving together multiple diverse characters in circumstances that would try the most stable and stalwart among us. Definitely recommend!

    I had the privilege of being the solo actor in this piece as it was in development in the Towson University graduate program, both in a standalone reading and as part of a larger theatrical experience. As an actor, Gross's words are delicious coming out of the mouth; as an audience member, poignant and lyrical being received by the ear. Gross is a playwright worthy of much greater notoriety than she currently has, and her work needs to be seen and heard!
