‘Ghost and a Soda’ Premieres to Raves in NYC

Ghost and a Soda – the existential comedy created during Mel Nieves 2013 playwriting residency – was a big hit at the Bad Theater Fest last evening. The play was born from the “Chopped” exercise Mel had the circle do – read more about it here – and this take on the concept has shades of Sartre and Jeff Foxworthy. I bet you never expected to hear those two names in the same sentence, but somehow the play works.

We were lucky that Advisory Board member Montserrat Mendez directed Kristin Cantwell, Chris Pope alongside two actors who have been a part of the prison program – Noelia Antweiler and Eric Hedlund – in this fast paced romp. What a dream team.
