Directing Reading Buddies, Season 2
Sure, everyone says "what I really want to do is Direct!", but Stacey has the degree to prove it!
After studying Directing at Fordham University, Stacey continued honing her craft as a director in both live and recorded mediums. Her specialties are musical theater with visual storytelling -- often including elements of puppetry. Her staging has been called "brisk and inventive" (Talkin' Broadway) and "full-blown theater" (NY Times). But perhaps her favorite review comes in the form of a single sentence from Theater That Matters, who said Rescue Rue is, "If Jonathan Larson directed Sesame Street" (if you know, you know).
In the TV/Film/Digital space, Stacey served as co-director to the award-winning short Beach Day which in turn lead to a commission with Heather Henson's Handmade Puppet Dreams, called Cone of Shame. She also directed Liz Hara's HedgeHearts, a 30-min short film/pilot rom-com about two spike-crossed Hedgehogs, and the second season of The Reading League's Reading Buddies now airing on PBS stations across the country. Can't wait for Season 3!
