Dollhouse at the Kennedy Center


Dollhouse performs in its 32nd city! At the formidable Kennedy Center in D.C. Jessica plays Helene, the sturdy bumbling drunk pregnant maid, and the usual wall-jumping, child-carrying stilt creature. Jessica is once again astounded by the strength of the container of the show to allow for so much passion and play.

NYC and the East Coast of America

Jessica returns to NYC in July, 2011 and begins work on several Lee Breuer-directed projects.
First as a puppeteer in La Divina Caricatura, which is performed at P.S. 122, and is a dizzying room full of fabulousness, including singers from Gospel at Colonus: Fred and JD of the Steeles, Eugene of the Soul Stirrers, Maxine and the Wild Women, amazing Bunraku puppetry led by Jessie Scott, video by Eamonn Farrell, and the inimitable Ruth Malezchech, Greg Mehrten, Maude Mitchell, and John Margolis.
Then as an actor and all-around collaborative creator of Glass Guignol, which premiers at the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown, MA, on September 24th.
Now Jessica moves into rehearsals for Sex in Coma, to open at HERE at the end of November, and gets ready for the resurrection of Mabou Mines' Dollhouse at the Kennedy Center in October, and the Majestic Theater in Boston in November.

Antigone at the Megaron


Jessica is billed as assistant director for the Opera Antigone at the largest opera hall in Greece! A well known septegenarian politician writes an opera for the first time, hires Lee to to direct, casts a controversial bouzouki hall pop star as the lead, rents the largest opera hall in Greece, and calls up his buddies in the transportation system to plaster the city with posters for the show. Throw in a flock of dedicated masked dancers, live video feed and projections by Eamonn, and some of the most temperamental opera stars in the world, covered in gold make-up.
