I read Marcus Gardley’s “The House That Will Not Stand” last year after a friend passed it along to me. I fell in love! There are three days left to see this show at @NYTW79, and for my students out there, they do offer rush tickets! Just get there early! I’m going to see it on Friday. Also, one of my college acting teachers is in it. Very exciting!

The House That Will Not Stand stars Janiece Pratt, Nedra McClyde, Juliana Canfield, Harriet D. Foy, Marie Thomas, Michelle Wilson, and Lynda Gravátt.

“The House That Will Not Stand” at New York Theatre Workshop brought the house down. Phenomenal performances all around. Written by Marcus Gardley, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz. No one in the play took their clothes off. Cast is all females cast. Yet it’s the most sensual play I’ve ever seen. Check it out. #PIE #TheHouseThatWillNotStand #NYTW. My dear friend Florencia isn’t fond of social media so I had to bribe her with kisses to put her picture up.

Synopsis: Set in 1813 "in the heat of summer, Louisiana passed from France to the United States. On the eve of the transfer, in a house in mourning, freedom hangs in the balance for a steely widow and her three eligible daughters, all free women of color." Inspired by Frederico García Lorca's "The House of Bernarda Alba," this adaptation was written by Marcus Gardley and directed by @obieawards winner Lileana Blain-Cruz.

Had a Fantastic weekend with my friend Jewelz. We saw an Amazing Play and the Best play I've Ever Seen called "The House That Will Not Stand" #NYTW. Stay tune for our Premiere Show in September from our Theater Co. " Sister Planet Productions" in Clifton NJ

Friends please go watch this if you're in NYC because this was hands down the best production I have ever seen. Every single element was just...perfect. And it was stunning. 😍
Acting was amazing and at the level I aspire to be at in the future but ayy it's a long way to go. 😅
(Also when a phone goes off at the one of the most cathartic moments like gdi)

Today I ushered at the #NYTW (New York Theater Workshop) and experienced the triumph that was The House That Would Not Stand. Women actors each held their own in this chilling story of family, 1800s Louisiana, race and identity. #masterclass #nytw #nyc #lowereastside #actor #Blacktheatre #actors #theater #offbroadway #creole

I sacrificed a bit of my vanity (and almost broke my leg) for a pic with the incomparable @ava! Thanks Ava - I look forward to working with you someday. 😃 @kenyabarris and @andreholland are also in #TheHouseThatWillNotStand tonight! #WHUUUUTTT🔥#NYTW #actor #actress #writer #hyphenates #director #producer #QueenSugar #AndAllaTheThings

How can you go wrong with @beyonce pre-show music?

Another successful summer session of #MindtheGapNYTW comes to an end! Thank to the wonderful #NYTWEducation team for putting together another fabulous afternoon of final readings. #intergenerationaltheatre #teens #elders #playwriting #nytw #newyorktheatreworkshop

***The creation of art has no age limit. *** TBH; since moving to NYC, my opportunities as an actor have decreased somewhat. I am not that upset by it because God always finds a way to bless me with acting work when my SOUL needs it most. Today was transcendent! I got to bear witness to future playwrights who gleamed their inspiration from each other, an elder paired with a teen. Their words have inspired me to keep striving for what I want out of this crazy artist life I have chosen. I am extremely humbled and honored to have had the opportunity to give voice to some of these rich and colorful new characters. What a way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon!
