She was as Beautiful as the Moon 

assistant producer, education intern, Roundabout Theatre Company

"Student Production Workshop's She Was as Beautiful as the Moon is a full scale performance created entirely by students from various New York City public high schools. Playwright Hanako Montgomery creates a piece that dives into the worlds of Luna, exploring the ideas of love, relationships, and identity. As she swaps the blare and blaze of a club for the solitude and solace of a beach, the present flows into the past for Luna. Alex, a trusting stranger, lets Luna submerge deeper and deeper into her memories, finally sinking into them, desperate to find meaning in the despondent moments narrated. With help from Roundabout teaching artists, each ensemble member contributes to creating this turbulent atmosphere."

Teaching staff:

Henry Decker, Joe Doran, Elizabeth Dunn-Ruiz, Theresa Flanagan, Deanna Frieman, Jason Jacobs, Nick Moore, Kim Oria, Leah Reddy, Jennifer Varbalow, Jamie Kalama Wood
