I am writing non-fiction, plays, and television that explores my personal journey of a gender transition and the political and cultural evolution of white masculinity in America in concert with teaching and traveling as a guest artist to colleges and universities. My memoir, Becoming a Man: The Story of a Transition was published in January 2020 by Simon & Schuster. The adaptation of my memoir was commissioned by American Repertory Theater at Harvard in 2020. It will have its world premiere in February of 2024 in the Loeb Theater at American Repertory Theater. The book was optioned for television in 2022 by Universal Content Productions.
Over a two-decade career as a professional theatermaker and administrator, I have developed dozens of new plays, produced theater from around the world, written countless essays, and most notably founded an online journal, HowlRound, in 2011 that continues to have significant impact on the conversations around inclusion and equity and professionalism in the American theater. I have also committed to developing and teaching courses to the next generation of artists and scholars. In the past five years I have pivoted from collaborating on other’s writing to focusing on my own.
