Eurydice designs

I've been a member of the David Henry Hwang Writers Institute for many years now, where I've written several plays (but never a musical!). Then one day, Alison Delacruz (one of my classmates at the DHHWI) was commissioned to write a version of "Dream Girls." Inspired by her example, I wrote "Rock God Opera" in 2006! It has been presented at EastWest Players twice, as a staged reading.

My friend Mindy Lee attended the readings, and loved the story. For the past two years, she has sketched numerous costume designs for my project. Pictured here are some drawings of Eurydice, the main character in "Rock God Opera."
