  • THE HOMECOMING QUEEN

    I had the privilege of catching the stunning Powerhouse reading of the play, and then the production at the Atlantic. A challenging, intricately woven story that had me laughing and crying in equal measure. The penultimate and final scenes of this play shook me, and I will not soon forget them.
  • A Nice Indian Boy

    I first met Madhuri through the Alliance/Kendeda program where I saw the world premiere of IN LOVE AND WARCRAFT, and have since fallen in love with her warm, sharply drawn characters. Her worlds are punchy, funny, and real, and I am such a fan of this play and her voice.
  • THIS HAPPENED ONCE AT THE ROMANCE DEPOT OFF THE 1-87 IN WESTCHESTER

    A heartfelt look at loneliness in the modern world with characters you can't help but love. Plus a piano covered with dildos? Who could ask for anything more?

    A striking two-hander that will rock you to the core. I love these characters and I love this play. Simultaneously political and heartbreakingly personal, Cheri's writing is pure poetry. I had the pleasure of meeting Angelica during our MFA and it has been a thrill to see her well-deserved rise.
  • Loving and Loving
    9 Jul. 2018
    A beautiful, spare (and truly unique) examination of mixed-race love and what it means to be multiracial in America. I was struck by the poetry and power of this 3-person play; a true lovesong to the Lovings.

    This play makes me laugh, cry, and question the American theatre in fresh ways with every read. The language is rich and honest; the world is wonderfully theatrical and wildly satisfying. I had the pleasure of being a Fellow with Celine at the Playwrights Realm and CANNOT wait to witness this wonder in production.
  • She Buried the Pistol

    A gorgeous, poetic examination of a complicated family legacy and what it means to be a woman in the world, now and then. I had the pleasure of hearing an early reading of this tender play and had tears in my eyes!
