Our company “The Escape Artists” produced two shows running in repertory: Miss Shakespeare and J. Caesar. I’m very fortunate to co-produce and write with the tirelessly creative Tracey Power on a regular basis. This ambitious project has been years in the making and featured an all star cast: Susinn McFarlane, Medina Hahn, Pippa Mackie, Erin Moon, Caroline Cave and Amanda Lisman, directed by James Macdonald and SM Angela Beaulieu. I co-wrote and arranged the music and played the show with Bonnie Northgraves. I used Ableton to create a live electronica sound design for our post-apocalyptic take on Caesar.
