Sideways the Play

I directed and developed the critically acclaimed world premier of Sideways the Play with the novelist Rex Pickett at the Ruskin Group Theatre in Santa Monica, CA. The show ran for 8 months and has since been produced around the world.

   LA WEEKLY’s PICK OF THE WEEK    “Pickett's novel, of course, has already been adapted into an Oscar-winning film, but in this deft iteration of the tale, the author returns to his original narrative. The results, in director Amelia Mulkey's winning, funny and wise production, are more involvingly intimate than the movie. ”    -LA Weekly
