1/15/19 - We’re back in the studio developing Beetlejuice for Broadway. Get ready!

11/29/18 - Tonight is the first performance of EMPATH at Theaterlab, created and performed by David Sauvage. Catie directed a sold-out weekend of workshop presentations back in April, and is thrilled to be back. EMPATH follows David's winding path from self-proclaimed "typical Jewish cynic" to the discovery of his gift for experiencing the emotions of others. We journey through his depression, test the waters of the psychic realm, visit Burning Man, and go deep into the hidden parts of David's body and mind. Part play, part TED talk, featuring live intuitive readings, this show leaves audiences reflecting on their own gifts, and the empathy that connects us all. Click HERE for tickets.
