My student, Mike Aguirre, got a play that he worked on in my Chelsea Rep Lab class into the Fringe this summer. I believe it's his first full-length play. It's about a singular piano teacher, Dolores, from the former East Germany, and her relationship with her young male student. The writing and the way Mike has the piano pieces inform the story are really interesting. Mike is a hard-working guy. He's my first student to have work in a Fringe festival. So it's exciting for both of us.
Here's more information about the Lab classes. Mike is in the Advanced class now.
