    FYI: On March 17 my new play (with music) is going to be part of a New Works Series (as a staged reading) in NYC! Should be fun, funny and amazing! Check this one out if you have interest. Would love to meet you!

    Here are the specifics:
    "More than just a staged reading" this new play (with music) will be presented as part of Emerging Artists Theatre’s New Play Series

    SUNDAY, MARCH 17 AT 2:00PM

    TADA! Theater, 15 West 28th St, 2nd floor (between Broadway and 5th)

    $10 tickets at the door or 888-744-2797

    Set in a dystopian "near future", this fun and funny romp explores if “old growth” historical values…once denied, disavowed and electronically erased from the culture… can be protected and preserved as a resource for all future generations.

    There will be a talk-back afterwards, I'll welcome all of your wonderful (and also "not so wonderful") feedback!

  • 18 Feb 2019 8:00 PM | Diane Baia Hale

    The Blank Theatre’s Living Room Series presents a staged reading of Diane Baia Hale’s full-length drama The Rake of His Heart directed by Andrew Lynford. The performance will take place at 8:00 p.m., Monday, February 18, at The Blank’s 2nd Stage Theatre, 6500 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, CA. $15 suggested donation.

    The Rake of His Heart was inspired by the true story of the unlikeliest spy of WWII: April in Paris and love is in the air, but so is the sound of Nazi jackboots. Posing as the female chanteuse L’Hirondelle by night, working with American Oss officer Virginia Hall by day, Denis Rake—a homosexual British actor lives dangerously enough. But when Max Halder, a gay German colonel, falls for him the stakes soar even higher.

    “She Danced with a Red Fish,” the winner of the 2018 Inkslinger Playwriting Competition, written by Carolyn Nur Wistrand, will be performed on Feb. 19-22, 2019

    The competition called for an original, unpublished, full-length play for the university. Anne-Liese Fox, third time guest director for the theatre department, explained the process of entering the competition down to winning and performing it. “Playwrights from all over the country submit their original plays, and the SLU theatre department offers a full production of this new play,” said Fox. “The contest promotes and encourages new works by playwrights. Achieving this gives Wistrand the opportunity to present her play ‘She Danced with a Red Fish,’ to a 445-seat theatre on this coming Feb.19-22.” According to Fox, Wistrand’s method of storytelling will give a fresh perspective on the most famous Creole woman of New Orleans, Marie Laveau.

    February 15 and 16, February 22 and 23, 2019 @7:30 pm

    February 17 and February 24, 2019 @ 3:00 pm
    Cook Theatre, Dillard University

    New Orleans, LA  – The Dillard Theatre Program at Dillard University will continue  its 83rd Historic Season with the Louisiana Premiere of a new play on the indefatigable 19th century female journalist, Miss Ida B. Wells, Ida B. ‘N The Lynching Tree written by Carolyn Nur Wistrand. Directed by Cherelle Palmer, the production runs on the Main Stage in Cook Auditorium, Dillard University February 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, and 24, 2019. Tickets are on sale now.

    About the play… Ida B. ‘N The Lynching Tree tells the true story of  how Ida B. Wells, born into slavery in 1862, championed freedom of the press to spotlight the atrocities of lynching in the Deep South. Constructed in four historical pageants, the play highlights the courageous, fearless, and militant spirit of the young Ida B. Wells as a schoolteacher and editor of The Free Press in Memphis, Tennessee. The Memphis lynching’s of Tommie Moss, Calvin McDowell, and Henry Stewart in 1892 become the catalyst for her lifelong crusade against lynching and inequities, brought about by Jim Crow laws in the Deep South.

    Rated PG 13 for content and language.
