Excited to announce that this spring, I will be joining the ensemble of The White Snake by Mary Zimmerman, directed by Allison Arkell Stockman at Constellation Theatre Company. In addition to the ensemble track, which includes a myriad of characters as our journey forks, I will be understudying Xu Xian and serving as movement captain. With original live music by Tom Teasley & Chao Tian and choreography by Jennifer Hopkins, The White Snake will play the Source Theatre on 14th Street in DC from April 25 through May 26.

Forsaking their lonely mountaintop for just one day, enlightened animal spirits White Snake and Green Snake magically transform into beautiful women in order to experience the human world. There, White Snake meets and falls passionately in love with the humble pharmacist’s assistant Xu Xian, but the secret of her true identity soon comes back to haunt her. Brimming with poetry, humor, and theatrical spectacle, this classic tale will delight and enchant audiences as only Constellation can.
