On The Exhale by Martín Zimmerman at Roundabout Theatre Company

I am currently in rehearsals as the Assistant Director for Roundabout Theatre Company's world premiere production of Martín Zimmerman's On The Exhale, directed by Leigh Silverman, and starring Marin Ireland. 


Read below for more info on the show.


When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor (Tony Award® nominee Marin Ireland, reasons to be pretty) finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime—and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we’re all part of the problem. 

Previews begin February 7th. 

The Magnificent Seven by Gordon Leary and Julia Meinwald - Fresh Ground Pepper

This year Nikki was selected as a member of Fresh Ground Pepper's Playground Playgroup. The PlayGround PlayGroup is a year-long, collaborative workshop culminating in the PlayGround Festival, enforcing Fresh Ground Pepper’s mission to prompt and provoke the artist to make art. It is a place where writers and creators of varying mediums convene to convert their pages, projects, and ideas into fresh new works. 

Through the Playgroup, Nikki began working with Gordon & Julia on The Magnificent Seven, a new musical that they will show with FGP in December. Stay tuned for dates!
