Buffalo Quickies: Storefront Edition
by Lauren Davenport, Devon Hayakawa, Alex Lin, Rachel Lynett, Sam Norman & Eliza Randall, and Bruce Walsh 

In the summer of 2021, when theaters were still locked down, I helped develop this one-act play festival. Actors performed short plays (either solo or in family groups) multiple times each night inside storefronts along Main Street in downtown Buffalo. Audiences wore headsets from a silent disco that could tune into each live performance. 

I also directed Lily and Tessa's Superstar Show, Episode 37 by Devon Hayakawa, about an 11-year-old girl who filming a pretend TV show on her dad's camcorder. When her best friend Lily doesn't arrive to film her part, Tessa learns some difficult life lessons about tolerance and friendship.
