2012 Highlights !!!

Wow - 2012 was a major year for Under the Spell!!!

If you haven't been following us on Facebook or taking in our shows in DC and NYC, you might missed out!  Here are a few highlights:

Written and directed by Lauren Cooper roughdraftofmylife is a one-act play that chronicles the struggles of a modern African American woman through four female characters. 

Under the Spell mounted a production of roughdraft in August 2011. 
We re-mounted the show in 2012 as part of the DC Black Theater Festival in June 2012.  

Both productions played to sold-out audiences, and the project received favorable reviews from the critical press. 

Congrats to Lauren and the amazing cast and crew who brought roughdraft to audiences in Washington, D.C.!!


The Fire This Time Festival (Production Partner)

Under the Spell Productions continued to partner with The Fire This Time Festival in New York’s East Village, as a platform for rising playwrights of African descent. The festival presented its 3rd season of theater programming in January 2012. 

The Fourth Season starts this month, and we are so excited about the amazing work and talent coming out of this festival.  More info here:  www.firethistimefestival.com

And those are just the highlights folks.  We also pushed forward short play or two, continued to develop our original web series, and began development on a new music-theater piece.  STAY TUNED!!!!
