They say blood is thicker than water, but is that really the case?


My love of the theater runs deep into the crevices' of my soul. My first play that I can remember attending is Gigi at the renowned Paper Mill Playhouse. Watching the story unfold before me changed how I viewed stories which still resonates today. Since then, I have lost track of the shows I have seen; some more memorable than others.


This week, I had the privilege of seeing the show Rift or White Lies at the amazing Luna Stage. This story, told through two brothers, takes you on twists and turns for which you are just not prepared. Feelings ebb and flow throughout the story, leaving you questioning yourself and your beliefs. The talent of actors Matt Monaco and Blake Stadnik really bring you right into the center of the character's story; guided by the skilled writing of Gabriel Jason Dean.


Luna Stage is an off-Broadway theater tucked into the hustle and bustle of West Orange, New Jersey. As I now call this theater home, some may say I have a bias, but I promise, this theater produces some of the best works I have seen in years. On top of hosting some amazing shows, they offer classes in acting for a range of ages (and allowing me to host my studio).
