#4/5 - THE BEGINNING OF A PLAY ABOUT A BUNCH OF PEOPLE GETTING UPSET ABOUT WOMEN PLAYING POWER RANGERS
This is a little late for both months, but oh well!
I have been working hard on At the Barre (first reading on May 21st!) as well as a brand-new play. This new play will have its first full draft by tomorrow. The first 18 pages of it were heard by the National Theater Institute students from the Spring 2018 semester just last week.
A Play about a Bunch of People Getting Upset about Women Playing Power Rangers, was born out of YouTube comments towards the female casts of Ghostbusters and Ocean's Eight, as well as a response to the casting breakdown released for the new Power Rangers season, Power Rangers Beast Morphers. The play focuses on six women who are cast as the original six Power Rangers in an updated reboot of the 1993-1995 classic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and people REALLY not being okay with that. Over the span of one month, this group of women come together, learn how to fight bad guys, try to figure out what average bodies look like, and eat a ton of Little Debbie's snacks.
I hope you enjoy a snippet of something wildly different.
May the Power protect you...
