It's a wrap....


I had an amazing weekend working with Angie Stone, Ann Nesby and Vanessa Bell Armstrong in The Color Purple.  These women are class acts and such great people to work with.   Theater 47 showed up and showed out!   I'm happy to have choreographed such a memorable show.  The tour has ended and I'm looking forward to starting again.

Working with Ann Nesby


It was such a pleasure to work with Ann Nesby this weekend doing The Color Purple.  She is an amazing classy, talented person.  Can't wait to work with her again.  I'm still talking about her kind, positive spirit.  Love her!  "It's Sunday morning....."  she was singing this song.  Brought tears to my eyes... she is so gifted.

On the road again....
