We have lift-off (and other fun puns)!

I’m happy to announce that I am now a member of the Mission to (dit)Mars Propulsion Lab, a writers group of Queens-based playwrights, which aims to “propel new plays forward.” Mission to (dit)Mars is a fantastic new arts collective that supports and promotes local artists in Queens, and they just launched the Propulsion Lab last year. I’m honored to be joining such a talented roster of playwrights, and to help grow a vibrant theater scene here in Queens. You can read all about it in the Broadway World press release:

Mission to (dit)Mars Welcomes Four New Members to Propulsion Lab

In other news, the second annual Run, Leviathan Run! fundraising campaign is up and running on Indiegogo! Leviathan Lab’s mission is to to advance Asian American performing artists by providing opportunities, resources and support for its company members in theater, film and new media.

Our Labbies are participating in the NYRR Bronx 10-Mile Run on September 29, 2013 to raise money for our 2013-14 season. As one of the writers-in-residence, I’ll have a new play presented next year, but that’s only one of the exciting new programs in store this season. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us get our ambitious projects out of the starting gate!

Run, Leviathan, Run! 2013

It’s fall, y’all!

I can hardly believe it’s already October! After a busy summer spent with my production of Lola Luning’s First Steps for the Women of Color Human Rights Theatre Project, I’m excited to cap off the year with a production of yet another short play of mine, Balikbayan Birthday, which will be included in Leviathan Lab’s Migration Nation. It’s a site-specific multimedia theatrical experience about Overseas Filipino Workers written by the members of our women writers group. And it’s our way of honoring Filipino American History Month. Please read more about it here.

We only have four performances over two nights on Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th, and tickets are extremely limited due to the space. So if you’re interested in attending, I urge you to buy your tickets now! And even if you’re unable to attend, please feel free to spread the word about the show, or consider making a small donation towards the production. We’re in the midst of our 40 Days to $4K campaign and we’re almost there!

Run Leviathan Run!

Anyone who knows me knows how  passionate I am about playwriting and theater.  And even if you don’t know me personally, hopefully that passion comes through in my work and the tidbits I’ve shared on my website.  So I’d like to take this opportunity to ask for your help in supporting a new theater company that I’m particularly passionate about right now: Leviathan Lab.

Leviathan Lab’s mission is to advance Asian American performing artists by providing opportunities, resources and support for its company members.  I’m proud to say that I’m not only a company member, but also the Co-Director of the Leviathan Lab Asian American Women Writers Workshop (LLAAWWW), the first writers group of its kind in the country.  I feel truly blessed to be amongst a group of such talented, supportive and generous artists.

We have a lot of ambitious and exciting projects in the works this year, including a site-specific theatrical event written by LLAAWWW members, a screening of 10-minute films produced by our Film and New Media Initiative, and the Shakespeare Quartets.  But we need your help to make it all happen!

On April 7, Leviathan Labbies will be participating in Run Leviathan Run!, a 10K race in Central Park to raise money for our upcoming projects.  I’m lucky enough to have a husband who is both extraordinarily athletic and incredibly supportive, so we have teamed up for this effort.  He’ll be running the 10K while I, along with fellow Labbie and teammate Dorim Lee, make sure we reach our fundraising goals.

We’ve pledged to raise at least $1000 and we hope you’ll help us realize our goal.  All donations are fully tax-deductible, and no donation is too small – or too big!  We hope that you’ll help us achieve all of Leviathan Lab’s goals for 2012 and beyond – this is only the beginning!

Please visit www.leviathanlab.com and click DONATE NOW under Team Reyes-DeCrow.  Once you’ve made your donation, please email info@leviathanlab.com and say, “I’ve made a pledge to support Team Reyes-DeCrow!”

Thanks so much for your support and I’ll be sure to keep you posted on all these exciting projects!  In the meantime, follow @LeviathanLab and hashtag #RunLeviathanRun on Twitter to get all the inside scoop!

Many thanks,
Kristine
