Name: Madeleine Rose Parsigian
What is your current project? The Untold Yippie Project
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
Access Theater, because a) it allows us to be intimately in the round and b) is easily accessible from the subway!
What’s next for you?
I am hoping to mount The Untold Yippie Project in a larger space for a longer run! The goal is to get as many people as possible to see this important American story.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Any advice for your peers?
Directing is an act of facilitation, not dictation. Meaningful communication is the most important ingredient to positive collaboration. In my opinion, this is the best way to create a piece of theater.
MADELEINE ROSE PARSIGIAN (Director) is the artistic director and co-founder of Sunglasses After Dark, a performing artists’ collective dedicated to challenging their audience through deconstructing stereotypes with color and gender-blind casting. The Untold Yippie Project’s premiere production marks her and Schlossberg’s 12th Director/Playwright collaboration, a journey that enriches tremendously with each new chapter. Other Sunglasses After Dark highlights include recently appearing as effortlessly cool and constantly stoned, Lakey, in our original web series 4and20; and directing the collective’s first film Punches, as well as their critically acclaimed sold-out run of 3boys.
