    May 7, 2018 - American Renaissance Theatre Company, NYC, honored Donna Kaz (aka Aphra Behn) with a Jerry Kaufman Award for her full length play, Waiting, the story of a small town girl, Lucy, who dreams of making it as an actress in New York City. The day Lucy gets off the bus she lands her first job on Broadway - waiting on tables in a restaurant. In an over-the-top parody of Broadway and the restaurant business, Waiting explores the performative aspects of restaurants and asks the question: Can waiters in the Big Apple ever play any other part?

    My musical "My Heart is the Drum" (http://www.myheartisthedrum.com) which had its world premiere at Washington's Village Theatre in 2016 was part of The Good To Go Songwriters’ Showcase, presented Saturday, March 10, 2018, at the Times Center in NYC in partnership with the Prospect Theater Company.  (http://www.goodtogofestival.org/)

    The Festival provided a sneak peek at seven new musicals that have been developed around the country. The evening was project focused with each writer presenting two songs from their show and then being interviewed.

    The showcase concert was born out of the Good to Go Summit, and the supporters are on track with a mission to support and showcase the work of women writers whose work has been developed and is ready for full production.

    C.J. Ehrlich's full-length noir comedy THE MALTESE BABKA is the Winner of the 2018 Women Are Funny competition, sponsored by Play-Makers Spokane. 

    Tagline: Join private investigator Jake Pantograph on a delightfully comic sally into the world of noir, as he tries to track down a missing girl, a blackmailer, a one-of-a-kind black diamond necklace, a hot babka, and some ice for his drink. 

    The play came in first of almost 100 entries. It is on the NPX. Production photos at www.CJ-Ehrlich.com
