Menotti’s “The Medium”

I am delighted to be playing the role of “Monica” in Menotti’s spooky operetta, “The Medium”, performed with the Cryptic Canticles, our team that recently brought you The Dracula Radio Play Project in 2017. I first fell in love with the character of Monica, the daughter of the title character, in one of our earliest Cryptic Canticles productions, titled “Twitterpated” a recital of songs in love and madness. I have since wanted to perform the entire production, and giddy to have that chance Sun, Oct. 28th at the Glitter Box Theater, back in my hometown of Pittsburgh.
