Hi! My name is Stacey, and I love to tell stories. My favorite thing in the world is building sandboxes to play in -- gathering tools 'n toys, and inviting folks to build fabulous sandcastles together.
As a writer I specialize in scriptwriting, where I'm often knee-deep in libretti, puppets, or children's media (sometimes all at once!), with a careful blend of comedy and heart.
Last but not least, I love hats, which might be why I like wearing different ones on different projects. "Does anyone still wear a hat?" YES, Mr. Sondheim, anyone does. And that anyone is me.
What people are saying about my work...
"If Jonathan Larson directed Sesame Street."- Gregor Collins, Theatre That Matters
"...the dramaturgically and musically ambitious show [5th Republic] goes all out."
- Eric Grode, NY Times
"...ceaselessly winning and unerringly convincing...The book is a crisp delight, hilarious and moving by turns... Weingarten's staging is brisk and inventive... [Rescue Rue] does what it needs to in a tuneful and entertaining way, and knows just how and when to strike your heart and funny bone."
-Matthew Murray, Talkin' Broadway
"full-blown theater...[Ludo's Broken Bride is] a good time, with prehistoric puppets, dream ballets and rock undiluted for the stage…"
-Laura Collins-Hughes, NY Times
"warm and sweet, even moving... Rescue Rue treats its audience with respect...so darned cute, not to mention dramatically apt, that by the end I was sniffling happily along with the rest of the audience. "
- Chris Carragio, NYMF Juror
"The cast is terrific, the direction seamless, the music inviting, the story will have you breaking out a box of Kleenex (This is a two hankie show) and you will laugh and become engaged in this doggie world, even if you are a cat person like me."
"...these are happy tears..."
-My mom, upon unboxing my Emmy for Sesame Street
