WRITING

A developmental reading of Welcome To My Life, the original pop rock musical which Alicia contributed her book writing talents to with composer/lyricist Bobby Cronin, was presented in New York City and subsequently optioned by Broadway producers.

In addition to A Gift of Undetermined Value, Alicia is actively working on several writing projects, including Fantastique,  an historical rock musical based on the life of Hector Berlioz and his tortured romance with wife Harriet Smithson. She is in early development for Oinbones, a musical based on the final decade of Ernest Hemingway's life and is also writing the play Scout, a play which explores issues arising from the Boy Scouts of America's policies regarding gay troop leaders and members.

DIRECTING

Alicia's critically acclaimed production of Spring Awakening, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's musical adaptation of the controversial Frank Wedekind play of the same title, ran in 2012 at The Ridgefield Theater Barn. The production played to sold out audiences and a concert reunion is planned for Summer 2013.

In addition, Alicia helmed a production of Sarah Ruhl's  Dead Man's Cell Phone at The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts, a production that the News-Times states that under Alicia's direction, the cast successfully dramatized "Ruhl's paradoxical world. It is one of togetherness and isolation, closeness and distancing, truth and deceit, purposefulness and accident, the mundane and the mystical." 

PRODUCING

Always a champion of new musical theatre, Alicia produced, in conjunction with TheStage Repertory Company and The Palace Theatre, the series Musical Mondays. Concerts featured the talents of Bobby Cronin, Rob Rokicki, Gaby Alter, Sophie Jaff and the writing team of Barbato & DeSantis.

Alicia has also produced at the NY International Fringe Festival, as well as a concert featuring the songs of Joe Iconis and a writing workshop lead by [title of show]'s Susan Blackwell at The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts.
