Over her time in New York, Jen was delighted to work with the Fire Dept Theater. A highlight was helping to organize two public readings of PRETTY UGLY THINGS, a play written by celebrated painter, Kate Maracle. Kate has been collaborating with director Erica Gould and producer Audrey Rosenberg in developing the script.
The first reading, starring Brooke Shields, was at the Players Club; the second, starring Brian Dennehy and Kyra Sedgwick, was at the Core Club. The second reading was for potential investors hosted by Adrian Hyde and Lauren Bender. It’s part of the often-circuitous process of play development.
