My Son Pinocchio in Queens!

Yes, that’s right — My Son Pinocchio (the shortened “Junior” version) premiered at the OWN Charter School in Astoria! And let me just say that you haven’t lived until you’ve seen a group of middle school kids perform your work. I loved every minute of it — and was moved by the effort and dedication that everyone put into the production. This is a school that doesn’t normally have a drama program — so they created this event out of thin air (and a lot of caring grown-up involvement). Truly inspiring.
