Although when recuperating I decreased the number of plays I reviewed, I’m obviously still maintaining my website and am amazed how many people keep up with it. By the way, all my artwork for sale is posted here on this site if you want to see more (and remember, if any of my peeps want to purchase anything, you guys get 25% off any original painting and $25 off giclée prints on canvas).
I’m still private coaching spoiled divas and neurotic TV stars like crazy and am about to enter my ninth year teaching at New York Film Academy--though less hours, since the student body was about 65% international until November, 2016, when enrollment immediately decreased considerably. I mean, understandable, right? Who would be dumb enough to send their kid to America with Trumpty Dumpty and his soulless syncophants in power?
Although I started at NYFA teaching acting and scene study and directing student productions, for the past few years I've also been teaching Great Playwrights, Playwrights to Screenwriters, a course I developed from my seminars on Tennessee Williams' life and plays, and both Media in Society and Media & Culture for BFA and MFA filmmkaking students in the Liberal Arts Department. This was initially rewarding but these days, with two-thirds of the students from China (the only country still untroubled sending their precious cargo to 'Murka, it seems), teaching the Media classes can be a challenge since our cultures are so different and trying to get them to join in class discussions is practically impossible.
