Butter & Garlic
This year’s Asking for Trouble at EST/Youngblood was a musical, BUTTER & GARLIC by Eric March. Directed by Kai-Hsiang Tu and featuring Susan Merson, Satomi Blair, Mike Smith Rivera, Stephanie Hsu, and me. Opening performance had two understudies: Carolyn Mignini and Sasha Diamond (who stayed with the show to join Eric as the pit band). It was a blast!! “Family’ photo above…
