Coney Island at Dusk

Something about the quality of the light makes dusk the perfect time of day for just about anything. My evening at Coney Island was pure magic under a glowing, gloaming sky with lights sparkling, the sound of the ocean and a Nathan's hot dog.

From The Tulip Forest Tales

The Tulip Forest Tales chronicle the Spring time adventures and goings on in Tulip Forest, where once a year all forest critters gather for the Festival of Springaling, where Princess Spring Blossom officially rings the bells of Spring.

Mrs. Moo Cow recites her ode to Spring. Mrs. Moo Cow: Oh Springalingalingaling; We await your sweet, melodious ringaling; The seedlings and tulip trees do sing; The brooks, they are ababbling; For gladness that you bringaling; Oh Springalingalingaling.

Because goats are nice to have around and kind of magical.

From Princess Spring Blossom's Wishing Star Wish: She consulted wise, old Mrs. Raven in her wishing willow tree, who gave her a map to the Celestial Mountains and carefulous instructioning that should she find herself lost, she should follow the sheep, who always knows the way, and beware the valley of the sleeping dogs, lest she wake them. For they should surely howl and the moon would most assuredly rise before she'd had time to hop aboard. All of this she did as she was told most respectfulously.

A middle of the night dreamy dream had enchanted her forthward to fulfill a most curious and unlikely dreamy dream wish; to ring the bells of Spring from high atop the moon.

The Napier Project: Developed in residence at Mabou Mines

The Napier Project ; Writer, Director, Designer, Performer.
The Napier Project summons to life three girls, their identities long since forgotten, pictured in a photo, circa 1907, from a family album. The play follows their meticulous efforts to unravel the mystery of the photo album, musing on its left behind bits and pieces to reconstruct home, the once-upon-a-time, small, rural farming community of Napier, Iowa.

The Napier Project was developed and presented as part of the Resident Artist Program 2000 Mabou Mines Suite It was subsequently presented in the Music Pagoda; Prospect Park, Brooklyn and exhibited as part of Great Small Works Temporary Toy Theatre Museum in 2000.
