currently in production at The Empty Chair Theatre Co.: Twelfth Night, & Titus Andronicus.

I am encouraged and filled with pride... First by my nephew who directed/recently completed his first professional music video while at VCU (post and vid to follow subsequently) and now...The Empty Chair Theatre Company...

Empty Chair Theater Company was founded in 2007 by Julia Sears and Elizabeth Nearing both high school juniors at the time. The company was formed with the goal to give young artists a creative outlet and the chance to explore deeply layered texts while working with their peers to create innovative theatre.

Elizabeth is my sister's God-daughter... I remember her, spirited and contemplative in Easter dresses and Pre-Raphaelite curls... And more recently, a lovely compassionate self possessed young woman with an easy-going wisdom beyond her years. While now at Carnegie Mellon pursuing a BFA in directing, she continues as Artistic Director of The Empty Chair.

Here is a link to more about her, and co-founder Julia Sears:

The Empty Chair was nominated for Best of DC, Washington City Paper. If you are familiar with them and would like to vote them among the best, the link is here:

We should always encourage the children we know... and so BEAUTIFUL when they in turn become an encouragement to us!



a la Septime Webre!
