After a disastrous workshop showing a few years ago I've begun building these alters to Dionysus the night before every public presentation of my work.  

The alters are a way to give it up to what will be, a recognition that I'm no longer in control, and a pra...


Bender / Mars / Reisman spent another week in the warm embrace of The Playwright's Center working on NEXT YEAR PEOPLE.

We asked ourselves some questions.

Right as I get ready to dive back into CATCH THE WALL for some major rewrites, The NOLA Project published this piece I wrote as part of their summer education series. Check out the entire series for some smart thoughts by some of the city's top theatre artists on arts...
